Mayor to lead 9th Annual Family Bike Ride

Join Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny for a bike ride along the scenic Paseo Trail during the 9th Annual Family Bike Ride scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, April 1.

The 7.8-mile ride is held in conjunction with Valley Bike Month and will start at Chandler’s Park & Ride lot, 2100 S. Hamilton St. Cyclists will travel north on the Paseo Trail along the Consolidated Canal to Tibshraeny Park and back.

"This is a great event for the whole family, and one of my favorite days of the year," Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. "I love seeing the community come together to enjoy a little exercise and fresh air on one of Chandler's greatest assets -- the Paseo Trail."

The event is free and participants will receive a free T-shirt while supplies last. Light refreshments and information about bicycle safety, transit services and related topics also will be available.

The annual event has become a tradition for many families. Daniel and Nair Ige and their daughter Kelly have been participating since 2013.

“The Chandler family bike ride was the first event we did after our daughter was born,” Nair Ige said. “Kelly was around five months and we had so much fun that we turn it into a family tradition. Every year we look forward to this event and hopefully it will continue for a long time.”

Pre-registration can be accomplished online at www.chandleraz.gov/transit until noon Thursday, March 30, or the day of the event beginning at 7 a.m. at the Park & Ride lot on the southwest corner of Germann and Hamilton streets. All riders must wear helmets.

Event sponsors include Valley Metro, Maricopa Association of Governments, Kiwanis Club, Global Bikes and Whole Foods. For more information, contact Ann Marie Riley at 480-782-3442 or annmarie.riley@chandleraz.gov.
