The Emerald Necklace Ride

  • Jeff Seymour Family Center 10900 Mulhall Street El Monte, CA, 91731 United States (map)

The November 2017 #BikeTrain will be an old favorite with some special guests! After a 2 year hiatus, the Bike Train will once again cover the traditional 17 mile Emerald Necklace route for #SGVBikeChallenge Ride #11 of 12! 

Join us for a beautiful ride along the Rio Hondo and San Gabriel River trails. The 11/19 ride will include stops at several local parks and landmarks where we'll learn about the history of the SGV's existing greenways, and ongoing efforts to expand the region's network of multi-use bicycle and pedestrian paths. 

Special guests will include Matt Suska, Senior Bikeways Coordinator for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, who will share his expertise on the County's network of greenways.
