The Chandler Family Bike Ride will return April 10-18, according to a news release from the city.

Following the model set in 2020, this year's event is an expanded nine-day family bike ride—encouraging participants to enjoy one or more bike rides and share their experience with the community through their personal social media accounts and the event page on Facebook.


“We may not be able to gather in large groups like we have in previous years, but we can still bond as an community on social media and share our Chandler spirit and pride with friends and neighbors,” Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke said in a news release. “You can ride solo or share a bike ride with others, and I encourage everyone to be safe by wearing a bike helmet, checking your tires and other equipment and following physical distancing guidelines with other riders. Don’t forget to add to the fun by posting your photos and videos before, during and after your ride using the hashtag, #BikeChandler.”

To be part of the shared community experience, participants are asked to register online at chandleraz.gov/familybikeride and commit to at least one bike ride at any convenient time from April 10-18. Registration opened March 1.

Those who register by March 31 will reserve a goodie bag with an event T-shirt, water bottle and other items from event sponsors. Supplies are limited, so register early and choose one of the goodie bag distribution locations and dates, the news release said.
