Our first ride is taking place on Friday, January 7! Because it is the birth of our ride, the birth of a new year and, of course, we like to party our theme is Birthday Party!!
We meet up at 7:30 PM at Giants Stadium, Willie Mayes Gate and start riding at 8 PM.
We planned a fantastic route that is accessible for almost everyone!

We start at Giants Stadium, ride 12 miles visiting beautiful sites throughout the city. It is a leisurely pace and we’ll stop 3 times to socialize and party. We end at at the Civic Center Bart so people can easily get home.
All bicycle riders are welcome to attend! We just asked that you follow our “How We Ride.” Which includes:
- Stay in the Right Lane
- Stop at Red Lights
- Leave Nothing and Nobody Behind
- Ride Predictably and in Control
- Roll Past Conflict
- When in Doubt, “Bike Party!!”
