A "mellow" bike ride set for Saturday morning is aimed at getting more families on their bikes.
The event begins at 10 a.m. Oct. 19 at Eagle Park, near Shoreline Boulevard and Church Street. Before the ride leaves at 11 a.m. there will be prizes "for every family" and a "street skills class," along with a bike mechanic from Performance Bicycle who will be on duty for light tune-ups.
When the ride ends at noon, there will be a "family rig show" -- a bike show for those who have ditched their minivan for bicycles. The 12-year-old owner of Wikid Customs Cycles will also be on hand to host a bike "fix-it-clinic."
Organizers hope the event will become a monthly ride. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
