Hey PlayWerx Families, just passing along some information on the upcoming Carlsbad Family Fun Ride, which will be held on September 7, from 10am to 4pm. The event includes a short bike ride around the Village and a healthy lifestyle expo. The ride is suitable for families with young kids and is a great way for you parents to ease yourselves back in to riding bike.

This FREE event will feature live music all day, food, games, expo, bike rodeo, and fitness course, plus more fun things for families to hang around and enjoy. The line up of activities include:

- Bike Rodeo by Ride Cyclery - SKLZ Fitness Course - Ga Ga Court by the Ecke YMCA - Bike Sprint competition - Frisbee Golf by Discovering Disc Golf - Interactive Music Making by NAMM - FitKids class by La Costa Resort and Spa

The featured Family Fun Ride event starts at Holiday Park in Carlsbad Village, looping out through the Village before returning to Holiday Park. All participants will be given a map with 5 destinations (plus a bonus one). Those destinations are places required to stop to pick up your wristbands. The main 5 stops will take you on an approximately 2-mile circuit of Carlsbad Village. A 6th bonus wristband will add another 8 miles. After collecting all 5 (or 6) wristbands, you will return to the park where you will be dealt a hand. The best 5-card hand wins! For those with 6 cards, you use your 5 best cards. In the case of ties, there will be one card playoffs and the highest card wins (A, K, Q, ...).

Please note: the Family Fun Ride is NOT a race. Fastest time wins nothing.

Grand prize includes 2 Haro BMX bikes for 2 lucky winners!
