May is Bike Month: BikeWalkSolana Events for 2022

Tour of Solana Beach Community Ride is Saturday, May 14

May is Bike Month, and BikeWalkSolana invites you to be part of the celebration! Join us for the second Tour of Solana Beach Community Ride on Saturday, May 14. Our group will pedal through the lovely neighborhoods of Solana Beach at a leisurely pace, led by qualified ride monitors. We’ll leave from La Colonia Park at 10 am on this 15 mile ride. In pre-pandemic 2019, well over 100 people of all ages joined this family friendly event. We expect more this year, so come early (by 9:45) to register. You might win a raffle prize!

Win an E-bike! Complete the Self-guided Tour of Solana Beach Scavenger Hunt Any Time in May

Our second self guided Tour of Solana Beach Scavenger Hunt can be completed any time during Bike Month (May 1 – 31). Over 400 people enjoyed this pandemic friendly adventure in May, 2021, exploring, biking, walking, and car free. Now in 2022, in addition to different questions we’ve added something new: learning about Solana Beach history! We’re delighted to partner with the Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society, whose historical plaques with QR codes on historic buildings will help scavenger hunters find answers to questions about Solana Beach’s past. Take your cell phone! Submit your completed score sheet for a chance to win raffle prizes from Solana Beach bike shops. The grand prize is an e-bike from San Diego Electric Bike.

Register now for the 2022 Tour of Solana Beach Scavenger Hunt! You should receive your instructions packet via email within 12 hours after registering. If not, please contact Karl Rudnick at [email protected]
