Claremont To Covina Bike Day This Saturday!

What a neat, healthy and earth friendly event this upcoming Saturday the 24th!

"Come join us as we celebrate Moving Planet Day with a fun bike ride from Claremont's train depot to Covina's train depot. It's an easy ten-mile ride, mostly downhill.

Haven't been on a bike in a while? No problem! Come to the Claremont Depot at 9:30 AM to fill out a little paperwork, then get your bike tuned-up, by the nice folks from Jax Bicycle Center, if your ride needs one. There will be a short bike safety talk before we start the ride at 10 AM. Along the route there will “bike shepherds” with radios, spare tubes, and other bike maintenance equipment if you need help.

When we get to Covina we’ll join riders from that city and enjoy a “buy-your-own” delicious lunch at Taste of Texas before riding back to Claremont. (Covina riders will begin their ride to Claremont after lunch and return home after a brief refreshment break in Claremont.)

If you decide you’re not up for the return ride to Claremont, you can always put yourself and your bike on an eastbound Metrolink train. For riders who want a more challenging ride back to Claremont, join a group that will head north to Glendora. Perhaps you’ll want to stop by Finkbinder Park and join that town’s Moving Planet Day celebration there. The rest of the riders will return to Claremont via the same route we took to Covina with “bike shepherds” supporting that ride.

This event is sponsored by Sustainable Claremont with help from the city of Claremont, Claremont Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee, the city of Covina, Jax Bicycle Center, and the Claremont Senior Bike Group.

Come join us! Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome. Biking is good for your health and the health of our planet!"
