Family Ride

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing protocol that we are following, we're not able to host our Family Ride at this time.  We miss leading you around the island and having some ice cream after! We'll update this page as soon as anything changes.  - AB staff

Family Ride

We've been leading our Family Ride since 2010, with the goal being to get kids comfortable out riding in the street, and to give families a place to connect and meet other folks who love to ride bikes!  Alameda is a perfect place to get around without a car - what's better than getting kids started on that at a young age? Our Family Ride is a slow cruise around Alameda, for families & kids of all ages.  

When: 1st Sunday of each month, 10am-noon
Meet at: Alameda Bicycle, 1522 Park St, Alameda, California

We'll take a different route every time, and end at Tucker’s Ice Cream or Rita's Italian Ice for a free scoop.  We’ll split up into groups to ensure the proper pace for everyone - even kids on training wheels and balance bikes can join. Helmets are required.  Did we mention the free ice cream yet?

Here’s a few of the routes we take for our family rides:

Kids Trade-Up Program

Purchase a kids bike and get 50% of what you spent towards the next size bike. 12", 16", 20", and 24" wheeled bikes are eligible for a trade-up. For example, if the first bike you bought cost $200, when you bring it back to trade up, you’ll get $100 worth of credit towards the new bike.
