How to get a taste of South Pasadena on two wheels Tonight
A “Taste of South Pasadena” bike ride will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, starting at the Mission Street Gold Line Station, next to Mission and Meridian avenues.
Metro, in collaboration with South Pasadena, BikeSGV and ELP Advisors, is hosting this family and beginner friendly ride on a two-mile route with pit stops at local eateries for food samples, special raffle prizes from South Pasadena businesses, and a free bike valet at the Farmer’s Market.
Participants are asked to use bike lights as the ride will finish after dark; state law requires bicyclists to use at least a front light and red rear reflector. A limited number of LED bike lights will be available for sale at the start of the ride for about $10 to $15.
A helmet is required for anyone under 18. Children ages 15 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Bikes with training wheels are not permitted, but children are welcome to attend if pulled in a trailer or on-bike child seat.
The event will also be a soft launch for a Bicycle Friendly Business District pilot project in the San Gabriel Valley. To learn more about the project, get updates, or sign up as a business participant, visit bikefriendlysgv.com.
