Bikeways make it easy to travel through the Irvine Business Complex (IBC) on two wheels! Marked bike lanes can be found on Red Hill Avenue, Von Karman Avenue, Jamboree Road, Main Street, Alton Parkway and Barranca Parkway. An off-street bikeway runs alongside the San Diego Creek Channel, which forms the eastern border of the IBC. This bikeway connects to a series of off-street and on-street bikeways that cover the rest of Irvine. Download the City of Irvine’s Bikeways Map here.
Numerous bikeways (both on- and off-street) are available in cities throughout Orange County. Click here to see OCTA’s Bikeways Map. OCTA also provides a guide to bicycling in Orange County, which can be downloaded from the same location as the Bikeways Map.
You can also use Google Maps to get bike directions within Southern Calfornia. Visit http://maps.google.com/biking for more information.
If you are commuting from a far distance, you can split up your commute between biking and the bus or train. Bicycles are allowed onboard Metrolink trains or can be carried in the bike racks on the front of all iShuttle and OCTA buses. When you arrive at the Metrolink station or the bus stop near your workplace, you can ride that last stretch to the office. Alternately, bike racks and lockers provide a secure place to leave your bike at the Irvine Station and Tustin Station.
