Join Los Angeles for the 14th annual Los Angeles River Ride, brought to you by the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition! This event is a great way to get out and explore this beautiful city – all while in the company of hundreds of other people in the community. The event is on Sunday, June 22nd. Registration cost varies depending on which path you decide to follow, but all kids (12 years old and under) get in FREE! So pull out the bikes, gather your family and friends, and head out for the Los Angeles River Ride on June 22nd! While staying in Los Angeles, bicyclists of all ages are encouraged to participate in this challenging and fun event!
This event will offer 10 fun rides to choose from depending on what you are looking for. Are you a cycling enthusiast wanting to test how far you can go? Then the 100-mile century path is for you (registration is $70)! If you do not want to push yourself quite so hard but still want a challenge, then consider the 70 Mile Park-to-Play ride or the 50 Mile Half-Century ride, priced at $70 and $60 respectively. If you feel like you want to train for one day to possibly take on the 70 or 100-mile ride, then the 36 Mile Training ride is for you, with registration at $60. If you are looking for a more leisurely ride to enjoy with friends, then the 25 Mile Explorer Ride is the perfect fit priced at $60 for registration. And finally, if you just want an opportunity to get the kids off of those video games and cell phones to enjoy some time outdoors, then the 15 Mile Family Ride sounds like just the ticket! Registration is $55, but remember kids under 12 years old can get in free, though they still need to be registered.

Families are also invited to attend the First 5 Los Angeles Kid’s Ride and Fun Fair. At the event, there will also be a Kids Safety Ride for children ages 3 – 8 years old. This is the perfect opportunity for kids to practice their bike skills on a supervised bike loop and enclosed area. The ride includes obstacles and street signs so they can learn how to be safe when they are out riding on their bikes. This event is from 8-11am.
