October Slow Ride includes Solar Fall Fun Event

What: Bike Pensacola’s October Slow Ride

Where: From the Ground Up Community Garden, 501 N. Hayne St. Pensacola

When: Saturday, October 22    |   10:30 am

Join Bike Pensacola for the most popular bike ride in town–the Slow Ride! Each month we explore the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola’s many historic neighborhoods for a fun and leisurely ride among friends. This month’s Ride will be part of From the Ground Up Community Garden’s Solar Fall Fun event, and is sponsored by Schmidt Consulting Group. Come join-in before and after the Slow Ride to see the UWF solar car and enjoy live music, Pensapreneur kids, garden tours and the Mad Munchies Food Truck.

Because most cyclists are “self taught,” each month we offer information about bicycle laws, safety tips, and addressing different bicycling skills that will help keep rides safe and enjoyable. The ride will be about one hour and ten minutes long, at a casual pace. Nobody will be “dropped” or left behind. Children ages 10 – 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and no pets are allowed on the Rides. Cyclists under 16 must wear a helmet by law; ages 16 and up helmets are recommended but are not required by law. And we will enjoy a ride escort by officers of the Pensacola Police Department.
