Wednesday, October 26th 7-9AM

If you're interested in commuting to work or getting across town by bike but don’t want to do it alone, then join us for our first Group Commute Bike Ride on Wednesday, October 26th! We’ll ride as a group on a low stress bike route, with pick up spots along the way. Meet us at the start for a cup of coffee on us at Cat and Cloud, and ride along until you get to your turn off or come the whole way to Westside New Leaf for a breakfast burrito (and yes, more coffee!) with ebike demos and a mechanic check from Epicenter Cycling.  

There is no special skill requiredother than knowing how to ride a bike and having a willing attitude for adventure!  

On October 26th, get to work on time through a fun and safe community group ride with your neighbors. 

This bike route goes along relatively low stress streets from Aptos to Westside Santa Cruz, avoiding hilly sections, and balances route directness/efficiency with quieter, lower car traffic streets/paths. We’ll see a mix of shared travel roads with sharrows, roads with bike lanes, multi-use paths, protected bike lanes, and green lanes.
