Bike Pensacola’s June Slow Ride tonight

Press release: What: Bike Pensacola’s June Slow Ride

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

When: 6 p.m. Friday, June 2

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 begins and ends at From the Ground Up Community Garden–a thriving oasis of vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, and great people! There will be garden tours pre-ride, and then we’ll ride the downtown streets before gathering for a post-ride party at the Garden–including a concert (tickets required for concert).

Because most cyclists are “self taught,” each month we will be offering 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 fifteen 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.
