FAQs:

  • What happens if there is bad weather?:  A light sprinkle we will ride, a down pour likely not. Please check back on the website and Facebook group.
  • I want to drive down, where can I park?: We suggest you park at the end of the route so you can easily reload bikes and kids at the end.
  • How fast do you go?: We go so slow, we could probably walk faster. No really this ride is at a slow rate, we wait for the group between lights/ stop signs.
  • Kids on Training Wheels?: We suggest if your child is on training wheels, biking on the city streets might not be the safest.
  • Can I come without a kid?: Yes, as long as you are pro safe streets and do not make us nervous you are welcome to come without children. Please remember though you are riding with children.
  • Can I come without an adult?: Sorry, at this time we require you come with an adult who is responsible for you.
  • Can I volunteer to help?: YES PLEASE. Email Us.
