DATE: March 29 @ 9:00 am
LOCATION: Ocean Beach Bike Path, Dog Beach Entrance

March 29th at 9 AM
Ocean Beach Bike Path

Meet at the Dog Beach entrance to the OB Bike path at the end of West Point Loma Blvd. Enjoy a leisurely ride along the San Diego River into Mission Valley, taking time to look at and admire several of the River Murals along the way. This is a mostly flat 10 to 15 mile ride designed for beginners, and those who have not ridden in a while and wish to start again, however all levels are welcome.

BLT Rides (Bike & Learn Together)

A Casual Bike Ride with Traffic Safety Education

Once a month we offer a fun ride in a scenic part of San Diego County. Part learning experience, part coffee jaunt, these rides welcome all riders, but are geared for beginners. If you would like an introduction to road riding, riding in a group or just a nice morning out with some fun bicyclists, this is a ride for you. The rides are typically 8-10 miles, mostly flat on bike paths and lightly traveled roads. We do it at a pace that encourages talking and interaction. We talk a lot, stop a lot, while having fun and getting information about riding in various situations. No one is ever left behind.
