Family Bike Ride at Tumbleweed Park

Chandler residents are invited to join Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke for a fun and leisurely bike ride along the scenic Paseo Trail during the annual Chandler Family Bike Ride on Saturday, April 6, 2019.

This 7.8-mile ride is held in conjunction with Valley Bike Month (April) and will start at Chandler’s Park & Ride lot, 2100 S. Hamilton St., which is on the southwest corner of Germann and Hamilton streets, in Tumbleweed Park. The riders will travel east through the park to the Paseo Trail, then ride north along the Consolidated Canal to Tibshraeny Park, followed by a ride back to Tumbleweed Park.

“I love this ride every year, because it provides families with a great opportunity to get a little exercise, make new friends and celebrate bicycling in Chandler,” Mayor Hartke said. “It’s free, so come out and enjoy the Paseo Trail with us on April 6.”

Family Bike Ride participants will receive a free t-shirt while supplies last, and there will be light refreshments, along with information about bicycle safety, transit services and related topics.

Pre-register online until noon, Thursday, April 4, or sign up on the day of the event beginning at 7 a.m. at the Park & Ride lot. All riders must wear helmets.

We would like to thank this year’s sponsors of the event, Valley Metro, Kiwanis Club, Global Bikes and Sprouts.
