Slow Ride, Take it Easy

Join Bike Pensacola for the most popular bike ride in town–the Slow Ride!


Each month they explore the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola’s many historic neighborhoods for a fun and leisurely ride among friends.

The Ride and after-party will include fun activities promoting the upcoming The Last Mile event in downtown Pensacola, which is a very special run/walk 5 K event dedicated to the life of Brien Pursell and raising funds for wellness and roadway safety in northwest Florida.

Because most cyclists are “self-taught,” each month we offer information about bicycle laws, and safety tips, and address different bicycling skills that will help keep rides safe and enjoyable.

At a casual pace, the ride will be about one hour and ten minutes long. Nobody will be “dropped” or left behind. Children must be at least 10 years of age to ride their own bicycle, and ages 10 – 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

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. We will enjoy a ride escorted by officers of the Pensacola Police Department.

October cosponsors are the YMCA of Northwest Florida and Bike Pensacola.
