We Love the Breakfast Ride!
Sunnyside Bicycles – WE LOVE THE BREAKFAST RIDE! Join us for our favorite ride Sunday, September 24th! We started this monthly ride when we first opened the Fresno shop in 2010. We wanted to bring everyone together for a fun, low-key, friendly bike ride and we are still going strong nearly 7 years later! We love the laughter, we love the conversation, we love the connections, we love the encouragement, we love the first-timers, we love the families out riding together, and of course, we love the waffles. ;) This ride is 16 miles total (8 to Blossom Trail Cafe, 8 back) and open to all levels! It's a great ride for beginners, and John always rides in the very back to help with any mechanicals along the way so nobody is left behind. Come out and ride with your neighbors, make new friends and see why we love this ride so much! Ride meets at 9:00 am. All riders must sign an annual waiver and check in. Please arrive early enough to roll promptly at 9:15! Please note: The ongoing Kings River Pipeline construction on Belmont means we may need to take an alternate route at the last minute. We will post the route as soon as we get an updated road closure list from the city! Thanks for understanding! :) Location: Sunnyside Bicycles Fresno (6105 E. Kings Canyon Rd. at the corner of Kings Canyon and Fowler) Please read and respect the following group ride rules. As we always say, riding in a group is different than riding alone.
