DOWNEY – The holidays will be accentuated by bicycling this season, first by a post-Thanksgiving Turkey Trot ride this Saturday, co-hosted by Mayor Mario Guerra and the Downey Bicycle Coalition.
Riders will meet at Apollo Park at 8 a.m. and depart for an 8-mile family-friendly ride that will feature a segment on the Rio Hondo River bike path, as well as a stop near the Civic Center, the Farmers Market, and City of Downey-sponsored Stay Gallery on Downey Avenue.
Also supporting the ride is the Mayor’s Healthy Downey partnership, which includes most of the major medical providers in the area.
In addition, the Chamber of Commerce Holiday Christmas Parade on Sunday, Dec. 8, will include a diverse contingent of cyclists hosted by the Downey Bicycle Coalition.
