Local bike riders from across Merced made their way to Main Street last Saturday morning for the annual Ride with the Mayor bicycle ride.

Held for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the family-friendly event is organized by the Merced Bicycle Coalition to bring riders of all ages and skill levels together for Bike Month.

The leisurely ride kicked off in Bob Hart Square at 9AM with Merced Mayor Matthew Serratto heading down Main Street with a large group of resident riders. The event route took riders along miles of Merced’s bike lanes and paths, through parks and neighborhoods. Residents also were able to speak with Mayor Serratto throughout the ride.

Riders looped around M Street to the Bear Creek Bike Path, and then to Parsons Avenue and Rahilly Park where they regrouped and rehydrated thanks to refreshments handed out by the Merced Breakfast Lions Club. They continued on their way along the Black Rascal Bike Path to G Street to finish out the event.
