Date: Thursday, March 1st, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Beach Park
About: Join us for a family-friendly, all-ages cruise starting at Beach Park and following the bike path to the Marketplace. The ride is finished once the group reaches the Marketplace, so make sure you have a plan to get back to where you started! Some like to park at the Marketplace and ride to Beach Park prior to the start of the ride so they may enjoy the rest of the evening without having to ride back.
FYI: California Vehicle Code requires bicyclists under age 18 to wear a helmet. The vehicle code also requires bicycles to have a front facing headlamp and at least a red rear facing reflector when being ridden at night. Its not only the law, but a great way to keep yourself safe!
Bike Bakersfield is hosting the third bike maintenance workshop in the Grease & Gears for Girls series dedicated to helping women feel empowered to ride on March 2, from 6-8 p.m.
This workshop will focus on three main areas:
1. Fixing a flat and bike cleaning
2. Adjusting brakes and shifting
3. Truing wheels and adjusting bearings
Bring your bike or work on one of ours. Light snacks and appetizers will be provided, including wine for those over 21 (must have ID).
As part of our educational programs, Executive Director and League Cycling Instructor Jack Becker takes the lead in hosting these once a month courses.
Now you can take part one of this three part course on Second Saturday at Bike Bakersfield. Part one consists of a classroom presentation where we discuss how to follow the law, be predictable, be conspicuous, think ahead, and ride ready. After attending the first part of the class, you will be eligible to move on to part two and three where we will be on bikes practicing handling drills and then go on a road ride where we put everything we learned into practice.
Smart cycling part two and three will take place on March 24th and also April 21st. All attendees must be a Bike Bakersfield member to participate. If you are not a member, you can sign up for only $25.
We are open on Second Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm! Stop in for a tune up and let’s ride around downtown. We will be hosting a quick safety tips lesson before heading out on our ride to the other Secondary Saturday festivities at 11 am.
