Chandler Family Bike event is April 1

CHANDLER — East Valley residents are invited to join Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke for a fun and leisurely bike ride along the scenic Paseo Trail during the 15th annual Chandler Family Bike Ride on Saturday, April 1.

This 7.8-mile ride is held in conjunction with April being Valley Bike Month. It will start at 8:30 a.m. at Chandler’s Park and 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 return ride to Tumbleweed Park.

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. Everyone on the ride will receive a free Kona Ice treat.

Check-in and activities begin at 7:30 a.m. From 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., youth can participate in a Safety Bike Rodeo, hosted by Phoenix Children’s Hospital, featuring a bicycle safety course where young cyclists are shown where and how to apply bike safety rules.

Bobs’ Free Bikes will be on-site to collect unwanted bicycles to be repaired and recycled back to children in the community.

Bicycles can be donated at the Park and Ride from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m.

All participants are asked to pre-register online at All riders must wear helmets.

If you’re not able to attend the community event or would rather ride in the comfort of your own neighborhood or park, the city will also offer a virtual bike event from March 27 through April 2.

Grab your family and friends and ride anytime during the weeklong event. Virtual riders who pre-register will receive a T-shirt while supplies last.

The ride is presented by the city’s Transportation Policy Division with support from various City departments and nine partners.
