The site offers tips on bike safety, bike laws, where to buy a used or new bike, bicycle security (how to avoid your bike being stolen), where to bike (maps, route tips, group rides, and more), bike community events, high school bike teams (for public, private, and homeschoolers), mountain bike and road bike clubs, night riding, bike-and-ride (taking your bike on an MST bus, Amtrak, etc.), bicycle parking (laws and etiquette), how to advocate for better bike infrastructure, and much more.

There are special feature stories on bicycling in Salinas, along with tips on biking Carmel, Castroville, Salinas, Seaside, and other local cities. Some Spanish-language biking resources are provided, including California bike laws. Also on the site is the HER Helmet Thursdays project--discounts on Thursdays, at participating locations in Salinas and countywide, for males or females who bike.
