Benefiting Freewheelin’ Community Bikes
Begins/Ends at 34th and Central Ave.
Nancy’s Ride-Labor Day
Nancy’s Ride is a welcoming, inclusive ride for all cyclists with the goal of sharing Freewheelin’s love of, and support of, youth cycling. Freewheelin’ Community Bikes hosts its signature event, Nancy’s Ride, each Labor Day, Monday. In 2020, we offered these ride options:
Circuit Rides (Distance) Option
The distance rides will consist of three circuits of 15,20, and 30 miles respectively. There will be one SAG (Support and Gear) stop located in the parking lot of Tabernacle Presbyterian Church where riders can recharge before beginning their next loop. Ride routes will be available to those who have paid registration on Tuesday, September 1, 2020. Plan your own combination of circuits and distance. Dan Henry markings will mark the routes. The SAG station will be open until 3:00 p.m. In addition to SAG snacks, every cyclist will receive a box lunch.
Destination Ride Option
A 10K (6.2 mile) ride through the Mapleton Fall Creek Neighborhood, this family-oriented ride includes a scavenger hunt and the opportunity to ride through a tactical urbanism project: A Pop-Up Bike Lane created by the neighbors. Families and small group of friends can designate the time when they want to participate. Ride Leaders are available to guide riders along the route if requested. All riders receive a SWAG bag and a box lunch.
Virtual Ride Option
We are offering cyclists the option to ride our 3 circuits whenever they have time. The price to participate in this virtual ride is $10 less than the day of entry fee. The three routes will be made available to virtual riders on Tuesday, September 1, 2020. SWAG bags will be available for pick up at our store, 3355 Central Ave, starting Saturday, September 5, 2020 and will remain available through September 12, 2020. Routes will be marked on the roads using Dan Henrys by Sunday, September 6th, for virtual riders to follow.
Prepare with us!
To prepare for these rides, Freewheelin’ offers Saturday morning Community Rides and Century Training Rides all summer long. These rides will be led by experienced guides. If you need a bike, new fleet bikes are available for use at no cost. These rides will follow segments of the actual planned rides.
