Buddy Bike Family Rides

Go Back. GO BACK | NEXT PAGE Read on! Next page.

 

Buddy Bike Family Rides offer a chance for adaptive cycling families to bike ride together. The rides offer children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy an improved quality of life and health. Cycling may help riders with special needs to build confidence and self esteem, to make new friends through social interaction, and to become empowered and inspired to fearlessly pursue their dreams!

Rides are 15 miles or less at a nice leisurely pace. Ideal trails are mostly flat and free of traffic for safety. Some rides may include a point of interest such as a park, historical site or lunch stop. We ask that ALL riders wear helmets on our Family Rides, not just the kids! Children must be accompanied by parents at all times. There are no fees to participate but park entrance fees may apply. All bicycles are welcome so feel free to invite your friends!

No rides are scheduled at this time.

Buddy Bike Group Ride in Parker, Colorado
Cottonwood Drive

Sunday, July 15, 2007
9:30 AM at the Parking Lot

VIEW EVENT FLYER  |  VIEW TRAIL MAP

The first Colorado Buddy Bike Group Ride will be held in Parker, Colorado on Sunday, July 15. This ride is a special event for our customers but it is open to everyone. Buddy Bikes are not required. It will also be an excellent opportunity to try a Buddy Bike for the first time! A limited number of bikes will be available for trial but must be reserved. Please e-mail or call me to RSVP.

786.489.BIKE (2453)
shelley@buddybike.com

Directions: E-470 to Jordan Road going north. Go east/right on Cottonwood Drive. There will be a parking lot on the right/south side. Parking is free but limited so share a ride!

The Ride: Our ride will cover approximately 12 miles starting at the Cottonwood Drive parking lot and heading south and veering left/east at the split just past Main Street. The turn around point will be at Canterberry Parkway. On the return, we will make a stop at the Farmers Market behind Main Street Center at Victorian Circle to the right/north of the bike path just past City Hall.

What to Bring: Money to enjoy snacks and beverages at the Farmers Market. As our customers safety is our primary concern, we suggest bike helmets for all riders. We will provide some bike repair tools but please bring plenty of sun block and spare bike tires and inner tubes as I hear that thorns are a big issue in Colorado. It is also a good idea to bring bug spray and a camera!

Our last Buddy Bike Group Ride in Miami was such fun that we decided to have one more before the hot, lazy days of summer set in! The group ride took place on Sunday, April 22 at Shark Valley in the Florida Everglades. This bike ride was open to Buddy Bike owners and their guests.

Read the PRESS RELEASE

 

 

1st Annual Buddy Bike Group Ride in Shark Valley
Everglades National Park, FL

The first annual Buddy Bike Club group ride was held at Shark Valley in the Florida Everglades National Park on Saturday, December 2, 2006. Buddy Bike owners and several other guests, including Mike Gomez, the President of the Everglades Bicycle Club, enjoyed the sunshine and all natural surroundings.

   

One of our riders, Ella, says, "Thanks for the Group Ride! What a blast. What a GORGEOUS ride!...A highlight for me was watching a snake bird dart around underwater from up in the tower. Johanna now stands up on her pegs so it's like Buddy Bike cirque de soleil. She had a wondrous ride...That should be at least annual and I'd love to do another group ride anytime anywhere."
