Event set for Thursday, March 30, to practice safe biking skills and the rules of the road
Older adults in Santa Monica can participate in a group bike ride on Thursday, March 30, to practice safe biking skills and the rules of the road. The Active Aging bicycle outing is a fun and safe way to develop skills and comfort for riding in the city. The ride will be led along the Expo Bike Path.
Participants aged 62 and over will meet at 17th St/SMC Station at 2 p.m. and ride together for an hour. The event is free and open to all, with the option to bring your own bike and helmet or use sit-down electric scooters and helmets provided by Veo for those who don’t have their own bicycle.
The ride aims to help participants feel more confident and safe when cycling in the city, and to create a supportive and friendly environment for older adults to enjoy cycling. All participants will have the opportunity to practice safe biking skills, learn the rules of the road, and enjoy the benefits of cycling with a group.
The event is organized by the City of Santa Monica’s Active Aging Pilot Program which aims to promote healthy and active lifestyles for older adults. The group bike ride is just one of many events and activities that Active Aging organizes throughout the year.
