Organized By:

Matt K, Alannah and Quinnen

Time of Ride:



In celebration of Pedal to Empower, you’re invited to join us on a guided afterwork ride from Backroads to Rosie the Riveter National Historical Park on Thursday June 1st. The group ride will be led by former-Trip Leader turned Talent Development Coordinator, Matt Kurkjian, and will end with a casual gathering at Assemble Marketplace. Please note: this is not a BR sponsored happy hour. If you would like to join the group ride, please work with your manager on timing for your work day, as we intend to leave right at 5:00pm. We will be hosting some Bike Workshops in the week leading up to the ride going over bike fitting, fixing a flat, properly locking your bike, and what to wear / bring on your bike, so you feel empowered 😉 to ride on your own! There are multiple restaurant options located inside for a bite or a drink. Plus, a beautiful view of the Bay & Brooks Island Regional Preserve. THE RIDE: Starts: 5:00pm in the 801 Cedar St Courtyard Ends: Assemble Marketplace Distance: 9.7 mi Elevation: 196 ft
