This is a SPECIAL EVENT to encourage multigenerational bike riding, get to meet other bike riders in the area, and enjoy deliciously cold popsicle treats. (Take the popsicle flavor survey so we make sure to get a flavor you’ll like!)
Ride schedule & details
Meet up starting at 5pm for a bike inspection and hang out. We’ll provide a safety overview and check everyone’s tires. We will roll out at 5:30pm.
THIS EDITION OF THE PEDAL THE PARK RIDE WILL BEGIN AT CORNELIA FORT AIRPARK ON SHADOW LANE.
We will roll as a large all-ages group, then adults/older youth riders will split off for a guided ride on the back end of the greenway, & younger riders will meet at the airpark entrance for games, bicycle decoration, & more!
We will also have kids bikes to give away at the event.
Has it been a while since you last biked? Want to join but haven’t got your own bike? A limited number of bikes are available for us to bring – drop us a line at least 48 hours in advance so we can bring a bike that fits your needs. Bikes are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Call or text Bike Fun at 615-763-3788 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rides are weather pending. We will cancel rides in case of heavy rain, lightning, or extreme heat (heat index of 95 or higher). We will post updates on our Twitter feed.
Ride requirements & requests
If you feel sick, stay home!
We ride as a group to support new and returning bicycle riders – no rider left behind. If you are a more experienced bike rider, you are welcome to come and help other riders build their riding confidence and skills!
Adhere to all greenway trail etiquette (ride on right, signal when passing, stay under 15MPH, slow down around walkers).
There is no charge for this ride, but donations to Bike Fun or Friends of Shelby are gratefully accepted.
