The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department’s Group Bike Riding Program begins on September 8. The program is for residents who want to start bicycling for exercise or return to riding. It is intended for the 50 plus community, but anyone 18 and older is welcome to participate.
Rides begin September 8 at the Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave. Riders may register at the center during operational hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., beginning September 5.
Rides will be held on Fridays 9 a.m. Each ride will have a set distance and designation ranging from 10 - 20 miles. Rides may be cancelled due to weather. Routes will be local, utilizing city bike paths and roads. Participants will be required to provide their own bikes, helmets, patch kits, water, snacks, and other items needed for each excursion.
