Slow Ride in Downtown Pensacola


Sat. February 17, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Hop on your bike and enjoy this leisurely community bike ride through the quiet, scenic streets of Pensacola’s many historic neighborhoods.

The Slow Ride begins and ends at the First City Art Center parking lot.

This event is FREE and open to the public, co-sponsored by FCAC and Open Books.

Open Books will be having a sidewalk book sale all day until 6:00 p.m.

First City Art Center will be hosting an Open House with raffles, glass blowing demos, social media giveaways, and lots of fun!

Bagels and cookies will be generously provided by Panera Bread.

“I love Lemonade”, a local lemonade cart will also be on site selling a variety of delicious lemonade flavors. 

There is currently an art exhibition on view in FCAC’s Gallery 1060, closing February 25th, appropriately titled “The Roads We’ve Taken.”

Because most cyclists are “self taught,” each month Bike Pensacola offers information about bicycle laws, safety tips, and addressing different bicycling skills that will help keep rides safe and enjoyable.

The ride will be about one hour and ten minutes long, at a casual pace. Nobody will be “dropped” or left behind.

Children ages 10 – 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Cyclists under 16 must wear a helmet by law; 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:

–dogs are OK but must be safely contained on the bicycle

–bicycles only please, and only self-propelled or electric-assist

–no Segways, skateboards, or gasoline-powered motorized bicycles

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