SM Spoke Picnic Ride

February 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

We are putting it ALL TOGETHER for a day of Celebrating and Bike Riding!

The official Parks Day, Come Play! starts at 10am with Grand Opening Ceremonies at the new Ishihara Park located at 2909 Exposition Blvd. in Santa Monica. Ishihara Park was named for George Ishihara, a long-time resident of Santa Monica’s Pico Neighborhood and a World War II veteran. The park is designed by the prominent landscape architecture firm Mia Lehrer + Associates who will be conducting group tours at the new park.

Our ride activities will start at the Dedication Celebrations at Gandara Park (formerly Stewart Street Park) at 11am with the February Ride with the Mayor to Los Amigos Park, our 1st stop. After picnic snacks and a visit at the Re-Opening Celebration at Los Amigos Park we’ll head over to the Re-Opening Celebration at Reed Park for more exploring. After we hang out there for a bit we’ll head back to the Grand Opening Celebrations Ishihara Park. The bike ride will be on city streets with and without bike lanes. Families with children are welcome! Children on the ride should be capable of street riding or in an appropriate child seat or trailer.

Pack your own picnic snacks or join us – we’ll be packing lemonade, fruit, PB&J’s and other yummy stuff to share. We always aim for zero waste events – please bring reusable cups and plates – napkins will be provided.

Please click HERE for questions or to RSVP so we can bring enough for everyone to share!
