With our Bike Valet close to reaching 30,000 bikes parked, we’ll be at a handful of fun events out in Avila Beach from May through August. This is a great chance to get you family and friends to ride the Bob Jones trail out to Avila and enjoy some fun on the coast.
Registration is open, and there are events for the whole family – sign your children up for the 1-mile fun run, choose from 3 cycling events through San Luis Obispo wine county, test your trail running skills, and more! It’s a great way to jump start that healthy lifestyle.
In the past two years, with your awesome participation, CCCC has donated $25,000 to local cancer patients, survivors and their families.
Check out their website for more information or to register.
The Bike Valet will be parking bikes as a part of the inagural SLO Marathon. Come cheer on the runners and view part of the happenings at the Madonna Expo Center where the Bike Valet is going to be set up!
When: Sunday April 22, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Where: Madonna Inn, San Luis Obispo (map)

The 2nd Annual SLO GranFondo is set for this October! This year’s ride runs along the Central Coast and enables cyclists of all abilities to ride and support ALPHA and the Coalition. We will be receiving a portion of the proceeds from the event this year, and encourage you to invite your friends for this unique Central Coast cycling experience.
The ride offers three routes to accommodate a variety of riders:
GranFondo: over 100 miles on a challenging ride from SLO up the northern coast to Piedras Blancas and back
MedioFondo: about 50 miles along the same route as the GranFondo, but returns after reaching Cayucos
PiccoloFondo: a 25 mile loop through countryside that unfolds onto the Morro Bay estuary
Registration is now open, (registering after September 1st will not secure you a jersey until after the event).
Regardless of your ability level, a GranFondo is an unforgettable cycling experience. The Coalition will be parking bikes in the Mission after the ride and will receive a portion of the proceeds from the event! By riding you can support bothALPHA and the Coalition!
Morro Bay’s July 4th celebration included the 2nd annual bike parade! We were glad to be a part of the parade, and park bikes at Tidelands Park at the end of the ride down the Embarcadero. Early estimates were around 500 participants in the parade, which went from the Rock to Tidelands, as a sea of red, white & blue on two wheels! See more photos on our flickr photostream here.
Thursday, June 30, join us for the ‘I bike SLO’ photobooth hosted every last Thursday of the month at the Bike Valet at the Downtown Farmer’s Market in SLO. It’s a great way to show off the personal flair of your bike!
