7th Annual Bike the Bay 2016: Youth Ride


  • Bike Church 703 Pacific Avenue Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)

Join GW2S and Bike Santa Cruz County for our 7th annual End of Year Youth Bike Tour! We meet in Santa Cruz, and will cycle to Monterey on Friday, June 24th and arrive at the Monterey youth hostel by dinnertime. The following day we will spend exploring Monterey and chilling on the beach. We will ride back on Sunday, June 26th.

Riding to Monterey may seem like an intense endeavor, but the ride is completely manageable for all riders, and riders of all skills are encouraged to come. The ride costs $75 - 150 sliding scale, but scholarships and fundraising opportunities are available!

To register a spot on the ride, you must submit a PERMISSION SLIP and a deposit of $20 no later than June 9th.

All 3 leaders on the trip are CPR trained, and there will be a bike mechanic as well for any on-the-road mechanical issues. Food will be provided, but let us know of any dietary restrictions ahead of time.

We are also planning on going on a couple practice rides prior to the Monterey ride for any of those who want to improve their biking abilities. 

This ride is also geared toward those 18 & younger, but youth older than 18 are welcome to contact us about participating. We provide limited spots for recent high school grads and returning BtB alumni.

Meet at The Bike Church at 8:30 am on Friday. We'll be back to Watsonville by around 4pm and Santa Cruz by 6pm on Sunday.
