In an effort to contribute to Pierce County Bike Month, the Puyallup Parks and Recreation Department is hosting the Pedal the Puyallup family bike ride Saturday (May 14).
Last year was the first year of the cycling event, and this year event organizers are hoping Pedal the Puyallup will be bigger and better.
“It’s an opportunity to get together and ride as a group,” said recreation coordinator Tyler Eidson.
The group ride starts at the parking lot of Grayland Park, then moves on to Veterans Park, and then continues west to ride the Riverwalk Trail and back.
The ride is seven kilometers of flat pavement, and is a good route for all ages, Eidson said.
“Bike riding tends to be something parents don’t think about doing as a family,” he said. “(This event) allows you to all experience the same thing together.”
Snacks and water will be available before and after the ride. The event is free and there is no pre-registration required.
Pedal the Puyallup kicks off 10 a.m. Saturday at Grayland Park, 601 N. Meridian.
