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. For April our Ride sponsor is Schmidt Consulting, and our host is From the Ground Up Community Garden–a wonderful oasis of urban veggies and great people. Garden tours begin at 3 pm, and there’s a party with snacks and live music following the Ride.
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. There is no charge for the ride and no registration required.
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. 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.
A few more things:
–no dogs or other pets–they’re not covered by our insurance
–bicycles only please, and only self-propelled or electric-assist
–no Segways, skateboards, or gasoline-powered motorized bicycles
–please make certain that both you and your bicycle are healthy and well-maintained so that you can safely ride about six miles. Please do not attempt the Ride if you cannot ride six miles at 6 mph.
