May is Bike Month: BikeWalkSolana Events for 2023
Mark your calendar! BikeWalkSolana invites you to be part of the celebration! Join us for the third Tour of Solana Beach Community Ride on Sunday, May 7. 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 13.7 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 must wear a helmet. Bring your own water and snacks. Be sure that your bike is in good working condition: ABC = Air (inflated tires), Brakes (working ones), and Chain (lubricated). You might win a raffle prize!
Please pre-register for the ride, especially youth < 18 who may be riding without a parent. Click here to download the waiver for the ride, print, sign and either scan and email to [email protected] or bring signed to the event. Parents must add their youth’s name and sign. Adults leave the youth line blank. This will save time checking in on Sunday May 7th as well as enable youth to ride even if their parents can’t make it.
Win an E-bike! Complete the Self-guided Tour of Solana Beach Scavenger Hunt Any Time in May
Due to popular demand our third annual self-guided Tour of Solana Beach Scavenger Hunt can be completed any time during Bike Month (May 1 – 31). Scavenger hunters will pedal or walk through Solana Beach neighborhoods as they locate points of interest highlighting art, bicycle safety infrastructure, whimsy, and local history. Once again, 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 Pedego Electric Bikes, Solana Beach.
