The next Metro sponsored bike ride, the Pomona Pumpkin Patch Pedal, takes place on Sunday, October 20. The ride will be led by C.I.C.L.E. and supported by the Pomona Valley Bicycle Coalition.

Grab your bike and get ready to ride from downtown Pomona to the Pumpkin Festival at Cal Poly Pomona. The free ride is open to all cyclists, and you’ll be able to explore the Farm Store, game booths, a corn maze and much more at the festival. Some trailers will even be provided so you can haul back your jack’o’lantern finds, but if you’re set on doing some Halloween shopping, it’s best to bring your own basket or trailer. And all riders are encouraged to dress to impress in costume!

When: Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013
Time: Meet at 10:30 a.m., ride leaves promptly at 11 a.m.
Where: Thomas Plaza – S. Thomas St., Pomona, CA 91776
Accessible by: Foothill Transit buses 291, 480, 286, 195, 197, Silver Streak and Omnitrans Bus 61

The ride is 11 miles and family-friendly. Admission to the Pumpkin Festival is free; prices for individual activities vary.

For the ride, make sure to bring water, a snack and a bicycle in good working order. All participants under 18 must wear a helmet and be escorted by a parent or guardian. Children under 8 should be on a tag-a-long, bike trailer, tandem or other safe child carrying device.

  1. I am glad Metro is highlighting events in Pomona and the San Gabriel Valley. The County does not stop at the 605 freeway.
