Normally, an in-person, 7.8-mile ride held in conjunction with Valley Bike Month each year in April, this year's event has been rescheduled and reimagined and – for this year – will be a week-long community-building ride and social media event.
To participate, register below, check your bike tires and equipment, wear your helmets and take your family on a bike ride along any Chandler trail, park path or street at any convenient time between Monday, April 27 and Sunday, May 3. Then share your bike ride images and videos on social media, using the hashtag, #BikeChandler.
This gives riders the ability to responsibly maintain physical distancing guidelines while riding together as a family and is another way to build an online community spirit among Chandler friends and neighbors.
Participants who register and then complete at least one bike ride during this time frame will receive a goodie-bag (while supplies last) with an event t-shirt, sunglasses and other fun items from event sponsors. Goodie-bags will be distributed in order of registration.
Ride participants who register will receive an email after May 4 notifying them when (after the stay-at-home restrictions are lifted) and where they can pick up their goodie-bag.
April 27 - May 3, 2020
Time: A time convenient for you
Place: Any Chandler trail, park path or neighborhood
