Give Big Kern Event at CALM

05/04/2019 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Come meet scores of nonprofits that are participating in Give Big Kern. Learn about the work they do and possibly even donate to them on the spot through Give Big Kern! Regular admission price applies. While the Meet & Greet is happening inside the zoo, outside, Jim Burke Ford Lincoln will be hosting “Driven to Give,” a dealership charity event to raise money for the Give Big Kern effort. For every test drive on the upper parking lot of CALM that day, $20 will be donated to Give Big Kern nonprofits. It’s safe, it’s easy, and it only takes a minute! You don’t even have to go in the park. Come and bring your friends. The more people drive, the more money will be raised. Together, we can all Give B-i-i-i-g!

    Join us for a family-friendly, all-ages cruise starting at Beach Park and following the bike path to the Marketplace. Experience a gorgeous Bakersfield night at 8 p.m. while feeling the wind blow as you pedal your bike with friends and family down Kern River Parkway Trail.

    All ages and skill levels are encouraged to come. The ride is a comfortable, 10-12 mph pace and welcomes riders of all kinds.

    Lights and helmets are strongly encouraged. The ride will follow the Kern River Parkway Trail west from Beach Park and turn South at CSUB, continue on the bike path through CSUB campus, and end at the Marketplace.

    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. It’s not only the law, but a great way to keep yourself safe.

    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.
