Ride begins and ends at Rudy Ortega Park in San Fernando
FREE, no RSVP required

The ride begins at Rudy Ortega Park, where tour-goers will learn about the history and culture of Native American tribes who preceded European settlers in the San Fernando Valley. A guest speaker will provide some background on the site, formerly a Tataviam Village, in what is now the city of San Fernando. Then the ride will meander through San Fernando and Sylmar, ending at Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore, a cultural space offering books, workshops, art exhibitions, presentations, readings, family events, performances and more. Tia’s just formed a new bike collective, which is holding a bike safety and repair workshop that afternoon.

Please arrive no later than 12:15 to hear comments by guest speaker.

Total mileage: Approx. 6 miles, with only slight hills. Great for beginning to moderate cyclists.
