 About the Ride


Come join us for the 2nd annual MandaRIDE  in Northern California’s beautiful Sierra Nevada Foothills on Saturday, May 4, 2019. The family friendly 12 mile, 30 mile and metric-century bicycle rides are hosted by the Loomis Basin Education Foundation, a non-profit organization. There is even a guided children’s ride for a day filled with family fun!  All proceeds go directly back to the local schools in the Loomis Union School District.


October in Sierra Nevada Foothills is a beautiful time of year for a bike ride. The air is light and refreshing. With the cool/crisp Fall mornings, the orchards are in preparing for Fall and foliage presents a brilliant variety of Fall colors. Our routes will take you along uncrowded back roads, past local orchards and farms.


This leisurely family friendly ride begins in Loomis at Loomis Grammar School.  Check in between 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Start your morning with a freshly brewed cup of coffee.  At the end of the ride you will be treated to an amazing farm to fork lunch.


Ride at your own pace and choose the route that is best for you: the guided family ride, the 12 mile ride, the 30 mile ride or challenge yourself to the metric-century.  They are all very scenic.
