#SaMoPride Green Lane Ride

June 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We invite you to join us and LA County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) for a two-wheeled tour of the City’s new green lanes as part of SaMo Pride Month, sponsored by Metro Bicycle Education Safety Training (BEST) Program. In June, Santa Monica is celebrating their 1st SaMo Pride Month and commitment to an inclusive and diverse community. This ride will sample some of the 19 miles of new green lanes.
 

20%off your entire order with purchase of Rainbow Pizza all June for #SaMoPride Month

The ride will meet in front of Santa Monica City Hall, located just two blocks away from the Downtown Santa Monica Metro Station. This bike tour is at a social pace with no riders left behind. Children are welcome but should be capable of riding in the street or in a trailer, child bike seat or tagalong. It’s a one-way exploration of the City of Santa Monica’s various types of bike infrastructure and introductions to a few exciting upcoming projects. The tour ends at Dagwoods Pizza – home of the Edible Glitter Rainbow Pizza! Bring smiles, a thirst for adventure, and cash if you would like to enjoy lunch after the ride. A marshal will escort those who will not stay for lunch on an easy ride back to the start of the ride or Expo Line Station.
