Try a Joy Ride and Walk over to Arts Alive event in Solana Beach


A local group is hoping you’ll ditch the car and instead bike or walk to Solana Beach’s Arts Alive Sept. 28.

In conjunction with the city’s annual art and cultural event, BikeWalkSolana is hosting the Solana Beach Joy Ride and Walk. The local community group — which works for better and safer bicycling and walking facilities, and promotes cycling and walking in Solana Beach — launched the event last year.

Both the ride and walk start at Plaza Street and Coast Highway 101. The 2.6-mile bike ride along the 101 kicks off at 11:30 a.m., followed by the 1.4-mile walk at noon. Both events are free and open to all ages.

“Because it’s connected with Arts Alive, we hope people will come car-free,” said Kristine Schindler, a committee member for BikeWalkSolana. “Think outside the car.”
