Ever been to the famous Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Festival? Ever been there on bike? Well if you haven’t, here’s you chance to explore the wonderful world of the Cal Poly Pumpkins via bike. With the sponsorship and support of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Agency (Metro), CICLE (Cyclists Inciting Change thru LIVE Exchange) will be leading this fun community bike ride from downtown Pomona to the Pumpkin Festival at Cal Poly Pomona via side streets in Pomona. At the festival, riders will receive a unique welcome, explore thousands of pumpkins, the Farm Store, game booths, a corn maze, the popular Insect Fair and much more! We encourage you to bring a trailer to haul your pumpkins, but trailers will also be provided to help with the load.
Admission is FREE. Pumpkins from the patch are $5 each. Insect Fair: $6 adults; $4 students and children 3-12 years; 2 and under are free. Prices for individual activities such as the corn maze, horse rides and the petting zoo vary. The Farm Store staff will generously provide 10% coupons to participants to use at the store
The ride is made possible by LA County Metro. Metro is the planner, builder and operator of LA county’s expanding public transportation system and has played an important role in bicycle planning and project funding since 1993. The ride will be lead by CICLE, a non-profit organization working to promote the bicycle as a viable, healthy and sustainable transportation choice. Metro’s sponsorship of CICLE event’s help fulfill the agency’s goal of encouraging bicycle trips and promoting safe cycling skills.
