Twenty-five new members participated Cycle Claremont’s second ride today in spite of chilly temps and a chance of rain. Claremont Mayor Sam Pedroza was among 26 returning members who participated in last month’s inaugural event. Cookies, free coffee from Last Drop Cafe and an assortment of free bagels from 42nd Street Bagel Cafe warmed up the riders and volunteers.
The riders broke into smaller groups with staggered starts, each including a leader and ride coaches. Each group listened to a brief safety talk before riding the 4-mile route within Claremont’s Bicycle Priority Zone.
As each group returned to the lot, the riders hung out and socialized while enjoying more coffee and snacks.
And a good time was had by all!
