Bike Pensacola’s February Slow Ride
February 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Join Bike Pensacola for the most popular bike ride in town—the Slow Ride! Each month we explore the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola’s many historic neighborhoods for a fun and leisurely ride among friends.
For our first Ride of 2023 our host and sponsor is the North Hill Preservation Association, which works diligently to preserve the historic character of North Hill–one of Pensacola’s most amazing neighborhoods. They’ll be providing live music, snacks and treats, and self guided walking tours of this most lovely neighborhood. With the cool February weather we encourage “cycle chic” apparel–dress up a bit–tweed jackets, sweaters, skirts…Have some fun with those dressier cool weather clothes we so rarely get to wear here.
Because most cyclists are “self taught,” each month we offer information about bicycle laws, safety tips, and addressing different bicycling skills that will help keep rides safe and enjoyable. There is no charge for the ride and no registration required.
The ride will be about one hour and ten minutes long, at a casual pace. Nobody will be “dropped” or left behind. Children ages 10 – 16 must be accompanied by an adult; no kids under 10 on their own bicycle. Cyclists under 16 must wear a helmet by law; ages 16 and up helmets are recommended but are not required by law. And we will enjoy a ride escort by officers of the Pensacola Police Department.
A few more things:
–no dogs or other pets–they’re not covered by our insurance
–bicycles only please, and only self-propelled or electric-assist; trikes are fine; elliptigos are fine;
–no bicycles with training wheels
–no Segways, skateboards, scooters, or gasoline-powered motorized bicycles; again, bicycles only
–no alcohol consumption during the Ride
–please make certain that both you and your bicycle are healthy and well-maintained so that you can safely ride about six miles. Please do not attempt the Ride if you cannot ride six miles at 6 mph.
