Description

This year’s Pedal in the Park will be hosted as a virtual challenge raising funds to maintain and repair the San Antonio Bike Share docking stations located on the Mission Reach. This year's virtual event is a 17-mile guided ride along the San Antonio River led by a UC Places audio tour.  Not only will your registration fee of $23 help maintain the B Cycle system, but you’ll also learn about the city's largest ecological restoration zone, the San Antonio River, and how it played an important role in the development of the San Antonio Missions, a World Heritage Site.

Pedal in the Park Challenge is open to all bicycles between October 11, 2020, and November 11, 2020. Don’t have a bicycle? Your registration fee will include a one-month B Cycle membership. Once you register, you’ll be able to log your trips and times so you can complete the “course” at your leisure.
