San Diego County CAThe San Diego Bike Coalition, the only countywide organization advocating for the rights of all people on bikes, invites two-wheeled travelers to test their legs at bike touring with the second-annual Kerry’s Ride.
The two-day journey gives bicycle-lovers of all abilities the opportunity to pedal at a relaxed pace with friends along Southern California’s iconic coastline. The scenic and social bike tour welcomes riders to explore two counties and multiple coastal cities in the hopes of introducing more people to the joy of traveling by bicycle.
“We’ve established this simple ride to give bike-touring newcomers the chance to try it with an incredible support group,” says Bike Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw. “Kerry’s Ride is the perfect way to take in the beauty of our coastline and share the magical experience of bike touring.”
Two dozen people on bikes and a support van will depart from the San Juan Capistrano Amtrak train station on Saturday, January 30 at 9 a.m. and head south along the coast. Riders will pedal the southern most part of American Adventure Cycling Association’s most popular bike tour route – The Pacific Coast Tour – winding along historic Route 101, through Camp Pendleton and ending day one at South Carlsbad State Beach. Bikes will collapse and tents will unfold for an evening spent with friends around a campfire.
On Sunday, January 31, the group will depart from Carlsbad to downtown San Diego, picking up more riders along the way. The group plans to roll into Mission Brewery at 4 p.m. to end the tour in proper San Diego fashion – with craft beers.
The second-annual Kerry’s Ride honors long-time friend, bicycle advocate, renowned teacher and San Diego Bike Coalition board member Kerry Kunsman, who passed away after a bicycle crash while on tour in Oregon in September of 2014.
