Pasadena: Kids Costume Bicycle Parade with the Mayor!

Join us for the Kids Costume Bicycle Parade with the Mayor!

The Mayor’s bicycle parade will be an opportunity for the city to come together for a family-friendly bike ride. Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard will welcome the ride at Victory Park to highlight safe routes for kids and families. All ages and skill levels are welcome, as are fun and whacky costumes for riders (and their bikes!). This fun, family-friendly event will include remarks from the Mayor, safety tips for parents and prizes for children and adults as part of the costume contest!

The bike ride is 3 miles, intended for both new and experienced riders and families. It will be a slow paced ride (10 mph) with designated and trained ride leaders from C.I.C.L.E. leading the way!

A raffle will be held for an REI bicycle and a New Belgium Brewery Beach Cruiser (adult size)! Bring cash for your chance to win a new ride!

Location: Victory Park, Pasadena, 2575 Paloma Street, Pasadena 91107
