Mayor and Council
CHANDLER, Ariz – Chandler residents are invited to join Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke for a fun and leisurely bike ride along the scenic Paseo Trail during the 15th annual Chandler Family Bike Ride on Saturday, April 1, 2023.

This 7.8-mile ride is held in conjunction with Valley Bike Month (April) and will start at 8:30 a.m. at Chandler’s Park & Ride lot, 2100 S. Hamilton St., which is on the southwest corner of Germann and Hamilton streets, in Tumbleweed Park. The riders will travel east through the park to the Paseo Trail, then ride north along the Consolidated Canal to Tibshraeny Park, followed by a ride back to Tumbleweed Park.

Family Bike Ride participants will receive a free t-shirt while supplies last, and there will be light refreshments, along with information about bicycle safety, transit services and related topics. Plus, when finished, everyone from the Bike Ride will receive a free Kona Ice treat.

Check in and activities begin at 7:30 a.m. From 7:30-8:30 a.m. youth can participate in a Safety Bike Rodeo hosted by Phoenix Children’s Hospital, featuring a bicycle safety course where young cyclists are shown where and how to apply bike safety rules.

Bobs’ Free Bikes will be on-site to collect unwanted bicycles to be repaired and recycled back to children in the community. Whether you are participating in the Family Bike Ride or not, help create magic in the life of a child by dropping your donated bike at the Chandler Park and Ride on Saturday, April 1, 2023 from 7:30 – 10:30 a.m.

All participants are asked to pre-register online. All riders must wear helmets.

If you’re not able to attend the community event or would rather ride in the comfort of your own neighborhood or park, the City will also offer a virtual bike event from March 27 through April 2. Grab your family and friends and ride anytime during the weeklong event. Virtual riders who pre-register will receive a free t-shirt, while supplies last.

“This year is our 15th annual ride and I’ve enjoyed seeing it grow and develop into an even bigger and better event.” Mayor Hartke said. “I’ve made this ride a priority every year. It provides families and businesses with a great opportunity to come together to exercise, make new friends and to celebrate bicycling in Chandler.”

The Chandler Family Bike Ride is presented by the City’s Transportation Policy Division, with support from various City departments. We thank this year’s Chandler Family Bike Ride partners: SRP, Global Bikes, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Chandler BMX, Pedal Haus, Rob Dollar Foundation, Valley Metro, Kiwanis Club of Chandler and Kona Ice.
