The annual 10-Spot Ride on Saturday, 8/27/22, was a delightful celebration of bikes, the local community, music, delicacies, and more! People on bikes were welcomed through private gates to a variety of properties from quaint courtyards and cozy nooks to ocean vistas, poolside hangouts, and a shady Chateau. The perfect weather added to a perfect day enjoyed by all. We hope you enjoy this video recap and the photos below.
From our generous hosts and their lovely homes, to our awesome restaurant partners, magical musicians, rock star staff and volunteers, and all the adventurous participants on bikes – teamwork made this dream work! Thanks to all who made this day wonderful – in support of improving and encouraging biking in our City by the Sea.
