Given the area’s wide-open natural land and extensive transportation schematics, riding a bicycle around Rancho Mission Viejo is a natural fit.

With that in mind, the community—specifically, RanchRide, which serves as the area’s transportation management association—has partnered with the Orange County Bike Coalition to encourage cycling and host biking events. Wendy Silvani, executive director of RanchRide, said the association helps people figure out how to get around without necessarily having to drive themselves.

They’re also looking to get people into more active forms of transportation such as cycling, an activity that has become even more popular during the COVID-19 pandemic.
