Community Bike Rides
This year we are promoting two types of bike rides. Please read below for more information!
Short Neighborhood Rides
with the Open Roads team
These free, drop-in rides are open to all, but are focused on coaching youth who attend summer Fixapalooza programs how to ride safely in their own neighborhood. Rides will take place the last day of neighborhood Fix programs and will last anywhere from 20-45 minutes depending on the size and capabilities of the group that day. Confirmed dates & locations for 2018 include:
Wednesday, June 27 at 6:30pm: Starting and ending at the American Hispanic Council
Wednesday, August 15 at 4pm: Starting and ending at the Alma Powell Library Branch
Thursday, August 30 at 5pm: Starting and ending at Open Roads Bike Program on the KRVT.
More dates to be added as summer nears!
If you are interested in hosting a bike ride with your group of students and don't know where to start, give us a call!
