Culver City Walk & Rollers is happy to announce the return of our monthly Family Rides. Beginning August 7 and continuing throughout the year, we will be hosting fun, family–friendly group rides to explore Culver City by bike.
All of our rides are lead by trained ride leaders and include a fun destination and/or activity. For starters, the August 7th ride will be touring Culver City seeking out little libraries, catching Pokémons and ending with a picnic at Carlson Park to catch the performance of Frog Tales by Culver City Public Theatre.
Little Libraries are cute fixtures residents have placed on their property to help build community and share the love of reading. Generally you are free to “leave a book take a book”. We know of 10 in the city. Join us to discover at least five of them.
While exploring each library we’ll also pull out our smartphones and seek out little monsters with Pokémon Go! The fun app that has everyone wandering and exploring their neighborhoods. We’ll be sure to toss in guidelines on how to play responsibly in your neighborhood, such as being aware of your surroundings, not playing while crossing streets and not wandering where you shouldn’t.
Our last stop will be Carlson Park to see the afternoon production of Frog Tales by Culver City Public Theatre. Summer without a play in the park is just not complete so join us for a rolling good time and a group picture with the cast!
