There are numerous bike rides happening through CSUMB’s Outdoor Recreation and Otter Cycle Center in the month of April! All events are free and all skill levels are welcome to join!
All Rides, Classes & Clinics meet at the Otter Cycle Center in the Student Center unless otherwise indicated. Each Ride includes the use of a bike and helmet, and will be fitted to make sure you are comfortable riding the bike. Please be sure to eat a good meal, bring a small snack, and water to any of the rides.
There are mountain bike rides happening on two Friday’s and one Saturday throughout the semester. On Friday’s, the rides are happening on April 6th and April 13th from 12pm to 3pm. Also on Friday’s, for those who think they can handle it, there is a long mountain bike ride also happening on a Friday on April 27th from 12pm- 6pm. On Saturday, students can ride mountain bikes on April 28th from 12pm to 3pm.
According to the Otter Cycle Center webpage, “If you are looking for a challenge, you should join us on our Long Rides. Long rides are intended for those that are looking to spend a full day riding. We go between 24 – 30 miles of glorious trail riding in the Fort Ord National Monument.”
There is also a road ride being offered on Saturday, April 21st from 12pm-4pm. According to the Otter Cycle Center Webpage, “Our road rides are geared to any type of rider and are intended to create a solid cycling community on campus. So whether you’ve never ridden a bike in your life or have years of experience, come out and meet new people and have a great time.”
The road rides are also free, but the Otter Cycle Center does recommend that you bring a credit card or cash with you to get lunch in Pacific Grove or in Monterey.
For all bike rides, please check into the Otter Cycle Center to meet with everyone before enjoying your bike rides.
