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!
Join us for an evening of bike maintenance and socializing on Thursday, Jan. 4 from 6-8 p.m. at Bike Bakersfield! Get a little dirty and learn how to fix a flat or patch a tire, clean and lubricate your equipment, adjust your bike to fit your needs, and more.
With hands-on learning and expertise from our repair technicians, bring you significant other or your pals to our shop downtown for a fun night dedicated to the ladies who bike!
