Come, join the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition for a fun bike ride around Pasadena on Saturday, June 10 th .
By Jerry Friedman
This is the June edition of the coalition’s ‘Second Saturday ride.’ It’s a loop about 12 miles around and it’s open to all ages, although children must have an adult with them. Riders under 18 will need helmets, and everyone that rides will sign a waiver. The ride is expected to take about 3 ½ hours to complete. Registration is free online, but ends June 9th.
Riders should meet at the bandshell in Pasadena Memorial Park (85 East Holly Street, Pasadena, CA, 91103) at 10:30 am and be ready to roll out at 11:00 am. Memorial Park has its own Metro station (on the L line). Be aware that parking on local streets can be restricted and may not be free. Parking information available at this link.
Riders should be prepared for a 12-mile ride with 350’ of elevation gain. Most of the ride will be on quiet, scenic streets of Pasadena. No bikes with training wheels will be permitted, and all riders must be proficient enough to ride with in a large group, at about 12mph. Pets and very small children are welcome as long as they are in carriers or trailers.
Helmets are encouraged for all riders, but required for those 18 and under. It is recommended that you bring some basic gear, in order to fix a flat tire and keep yourself rolling, and of course, bringing water is always a good idea on a bike ride.
If the weather becomes an issue, PCSC will send an email to registered riders, early in the morning of Saturday, June 10th to notify riders of any change.
