SBBIKE Community Bike Ride
January 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Are you interested in riding a bike around town in the new year?
Take the plunge and join the welcoming and friendly SBBIKE Community Bike Rides (age 16 +) led by certified League Cycling Instructors (LCIs). They are educational, fun and FREE for all current SBBIKE members!
On Tuesday, January 16th, the group will go for a casual ride after work starting at De La Guerra Plaza, in front of City Hall. All participants should be able to ride a bike safely with the ability to brake, change gears, and balance while stopping and starting at all traffic signals. SBBIKE Community Bike Rides are no-drop rides meaning that every participant respects traffic laws and nobody is left behind during the one hour ride.
- Your bicycle, in good running order and don’t forget your helmet.
- A set of night lights (white in the front and red in the back)
- All participants under 18 must wear a helmet and be escorted by a parent or guardian.
