15-Mile Family Ride - start at 11:00 a.m.

Riders take the LA River Path from Griffith Park down to the Elysian Valley Pit Stop, then turn around back to Griffith Park.  This ride is on a dedicated bike path (no streets, no cars!), along a scenic natural stretch of the LA River. Very young riders (and their families) can easily do this ride.

Kids' 2-Mile Ride - 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

This is a ride upstream on the LA River Path from the entrance near the Autry. Riders will be escorted by parents to the path entrance and back. Total riding distance is 2 miles.  If families are participating in both the kids' ride and the family ride, participate in the kids' ride first, then join up with the family riders. Kids will learn about bike safety and enjoy other activities.  Bikes and push bikes are okay. Please no tricycles.  Riders over 9 years of age should probably ride (with an adult) on the 15 mile Family Ride.
