As part of National Bike Month, the city of Santa Clarita will host a week of bicycle-focused events and activities leading up to and after the world-class cycling race, Amgen Tour of California, presented by AEG. The city is honored to host a stage of America’s Greatest Race for the 12th year and to offer plenty of activities for families to enjoy during National Bike Month.

Santa Clarita’s Bike Week will officially kick off with the Hit the Trail Community Bike Ride on Saturday, May 13, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. The event will begin and end at Valencia Heritage Park, located at 24155 Newhall Ranch Road.

On Monday, May 15, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., ladies are invited to join the Women’s Cycling Social. Meet at South Fork Trailhead, located on Magic Mountain Parkway half a mile east of Valencia Boulevard, and enjoy a casual, guided ride with members of the SCV Bicycle Coalition.

All students in Santa Clarita are encouraged to ride their bikes to school Tuesday, May 16, for Bike to School Day. This is the perfect occasion for students to enjoy the fresh air, reduce the number of cars on the road and contribute to the improvement of air quality.

The fun begins with the free, day-long Lifestyle Festival opening at noon near the finish line at Magic Mountain Parkway at Westfield Valencia Town Center. Spectators can enjoy 40+ exhibitors and activities, and watch cyclists battle their way nearly 100 miles from Santa Barbara to Santa Clarita live on jumbotrons at the festival with suspense building until they sprint into town along Magic Mountain Parkway for the Stage Finish. The festival and race will end at 4 p.m. This international sporting event is one of the most prestigious races in the world, and is free with parking available at Westfield Valencia Town Center, located at 24201 Valencia Boulevard.
