Bike Pensacola has set its next monthly Slow Ride event for October 10. The Slow Ride event provides an opportunity for cyclists to explore the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola’s many historic neighborhoods on a fun and leisurely ride among friends. These rides are designed for people with any kind of bike and any skill level.
The host for this month’s event is the Trek Bicycle Store, located at 701 East Cervantes Street. The event will begin at 10 am on Saturday, October 10.
Because most cyclists are “self taught,” each month organizers will be offering information about bicycle laws, safety tips, and addressing different bicycling skills that will help cyclists keep rides safe and enjoyable. This month’s Slow Ride will feature samples of healthy snacks and a licensed nutritionist on-hand after the ride to answer questions about how to improve your diet.
The rides are led by Pensacola cyclist and long time bike commuter Christian Wagley, and certified cycling instructor Timothy Bustos, founding board members for the new organization Bike Pensacola.
Each ride will be 1 – 1 ½ hours long, at a casual pace. Nobody will be “dropped” or left behind. Children ages 10 – 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Cyclists under 16 must wear a helmet by law; ages 16 and up helmets are recommended but are not required by law.
