The streets of Newport Beach carry thousands of motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians daily. All users have the same rights and responsibilities when using public streets.
As a part of the vision for improving our roads, the City has embarked on the preparation of a sustainable city-wide Bicycle Master Plan. This document will guide the City by creating a comprehensive bicycle network, defining bicycle improvements, creating education and encouragement programs and identifying funding opportunities for projects.
