This practice ride is one week before the Pand-Epic Memorial Ride

We gather at 10AM to provide Bike Safety Checks and help with proper fitting and tire pressure.

At 10:30AM we will take a short practice ride to review the rules of the road and make sure everyone is comfortable on their bikes.

All levels of riders are welcome and will be escorted at their pace.

Please Register each rider for this event so we know how many to plan for.
If you can't make the ride please change your registration or contact us.


Below is a copy of the information for the following week's rides.


This ride will honor the over 1500 residents and 18 staff members of OC Long Term Care Facilities (LCTFs) who died of COVID. Each stop will be at a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) and will be a gathering point for other facilities in the area to hold a brief memorial for those who died in that area. This will not be your typical cycling event; it is more a memorial event. In order to keep the group together to arrive at each facility at the same time, participants considering the 60 mile route must be comfortable riding in a group on the road and be able to maintain a 16-18 MPH pace. The shorter route is appropriate for all levels of riders; this will be at a slower pace and will be mostly on a bike path. The two groups will meet at the final stopping point, and return together to the Health Department for a final closing ceremony.
