Davis Bike Tour


"Long Beach By Bike" Tour Details The Long Beach By Bike Tour will be led by Charles Gandy, a nationally recognized expert in community design, trail planning and design, and bicycle and pedestrian advocacy. We will meet between 9:30 and 10:00 at Bikestation in downtown Long Beach (223 East 1st Street, Long Beach - 1st Street Transit Mall at Promenade Park), which is conveniently located next to the Blue Line.

Please bring your own bike and helmet if you have them. A limited number of beach cruiser style bikes will be available for rental at a flat rate of $20 per bike from Bikestation at the beginning of our tour. Please select the appropriate registration option below (registration with bike rental or without) when making your reservation for the event. After all are fitted with bikes, we will begin our tour on the City’s cycletrack. Mid-way through the tour, we will be stopping at the At Last Café for a no-host lunch, and to learn how biking and the application of parklets has improved business for the downtown Long Beach community. The tour will end at 3:30 p.m.

For logistical reasons our tour size is limited to 35 people. The tour route is approximately eight miles long and is done at a slow pace with frequent stops to talk, observe, and ask questions. It is designed to comfortably accommodate those who haven’t been on a bike in a while to those hardcore cyclists who want to learn how to slow down.

PMC has graciously offered to sponsor registration for 6 students at this event. Students interested in being considered for one of the complimentary registrations should email Wendy Grant, AICP at wgrant@placeworks.com with name, university attending, and area of study. Please also include the reason you’d like to come and how this event  relates to your planning education. We’ll get back to you a week before the event to let you know if your entry was selected and to get you registered for the event!
