 For those really looking to enjoy a brisk bike ride before the festival, arrive early to Central Park and participate in one of two bicycle rides presented by Newhall Bicycle Company.  A road ride, covering 40-miles, and the Family Ride, coving 10-miles, will leave Central Park at 8:15 am.  Once you arrive back in Central Park, you will have the opportunity to valet your bike free thanks to the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition.  Helmets are suggested. You can ride your bike to either the Westfield Valencia Town Center or the Santa Clarita Sports Complex, valet your bike, and catch a free ride on the Santa Clarita Transit to Central Park, where you will receive a shopping bag compliment of Whole Food Market.

Newhall Bike is sponsoring an 8:15 family ride and 40 mile ride.
