bike-ride.jpgOn Friday, July 4, more than 250 kids of all ages and their parents are expected to ride on decked-out patriotic-themed bikes, wearing red, white & blue outfits and waving flags, in hopes of taking home prize money at Justin Rudd’s 5th Annual “Great American 4th of July Kids Bike Parade.”
KTLA-TV Morning News reporter Gayle Anderson will be doing live remotes at the parade’s start/finish line from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Participants and spectators are encouraged to be there at that time for a chance to appear on live TV.
Entry is free. Kids are required to wear helmets and be escorted by a parent or guardian. By law, motor driven cycles are not allowed on the beach bike path.
The two-mile leisurely paced “out & back” parade will start at the Granada Boat Launch Ramp (Granada Avenue at Ocean Boulevard) and travel east along the beach bike path, crossing Ocean Boulevard, continuing down Bay Shore Avenue to Second Street. Bay Shore Avenue will be closed to automobile traffic. The parade will not cross Second Street.
Councilman Gary DeLong and his daughter Katie will be the grand marshals for the event.
The Community Action Team (CAT) will award prizes to the top young bicyclists based on the following criteria: display of red, white & blue; originality; creativity; and spectator appeal. The top ten entrants will recieve a $10 bill, donated by Arbor by the Bay. Also, Jones Bicycles has donated a beach cruiser that will be given away as a door prize to one of the kids in the parade.
Registration starts at 9:15 a.m. and the parade begins at 10 a.m. For more info, visit or call (562) 439-3316.
