It's joy on two wheels

About Us

"Bike Pensacola" is a coalition of bicyclists, bike clubs, bike shops, and other organizations working to improve conditions for bicycling in Pensacola.

 

Join Bike Pensacola for the most popular bike ride in town—the Slow Ride!

 

Each month we explore the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola's many historic neighborhoods for a fun and leisurely ride among friends. 

Because most cyclists are “self taught,” each month we offer information about

bicycle laws and safety tips that will help keep rides safe and enjoyable.

The ride will be about one hour and ten minutes long, at a casual pace, but may include some hills. Nobody will be “dropped” or left behind. Children 16 and under are to be accompanied by an adult 18 or older and are the responsibility of that adult . Cyclists under 16 must wear a helmet by law, including those in bike trailers; ages 16 and up helmets are recommended but are not required by law. And we will enjoy a ride escort by officers of the Pensacola Police Department.

A few more things:

  • Pets are not allowed per our insurance policy

  • No training wheels 

  • Bicycles only please, and only self-propelled or electric-assist

  • No Segways, skateboards, or gasoline-powered motorized bicycles

  • Open containers of alcohol are not allowed

  • Please make certain that both you and your bicycle are healthy and well-maintained so that you can safely ride about six miles.

For much more information about the Slow Ride please visit Bike Pensacola on Facebook or call 850-687-9968 or bike@pensacolacan.org

April Slow Ride

The most popular bike ride in town—the Slow Ride! Each month we explore the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola's many historic neighborhoods for a fun and leisurely ride among friends.

 

For April our host and sponsor is West Florida Public Libraries (WFPL), a regional organization that offers so much to our community, from reading clubs and STEAM activities to a summer feeding program for kids. The WFPL is truly a community gem!

We will ride through parts of downtown and Belmont Devilliers this month. Following the Ride there will be a party with food, kid's activities, and more.

Visit our Facebook page for more detail on the event.

Ciclovia Pensacola

Ciclovía — originated in Bogota, Colombia in the 1970s and took off around the world in the 1990s. Pensacola joined the movement in 2017 with our very first Ciclovía! This event closes major streets in downtown Pensacola to motorized traffic and opens them up for people to ride bikes, walk, run, play, or whatever moves them! Come join in on the fun!

Ciclovía Pensacola is a grassroots movement made up of volunteers and a diverse range of public, private, and nonprofit stakeholders.

Visit our Website or Facebook page for more detail on the event.
