Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the bike ride?
This year's C.U.R.B. Bike Ride could be any length you want! The route normally traverses through many parts of the City of Long Beach such as the West End, the Canals, the Boardwalk, and a mile strip along Reynolds Channel, among many others, but this year, riders are able to choose whichever route best suits their bicycling abilities.
Where does the bike ride take place?
This year, the C.U.R.B. Bike Ride could take anywhere you wish! Whether it be Long Beach, New York, or Long Beach, California, or even from your stationary bike in the comfort of your own home, the possibilities are endless.
How will the C.U.R.B. Bike Ride team take precautions to remain safe from COVID-19?
The team has been working hard to bring you a bike ride that will respect the guidelines of social distancing while still enabling riders to have a great day in the City of Long Beach. The bike ride will be a virtual ride, where riders will be able to pick up their t-shirts over several hours on August 8, 2020. Having a large registration window will reduce crowds that may form, and if such crowds form, volunteers will make sure people are spaced appropriately while waiting on line. The virtual ride will allow riders to choose their own route and we will be asking riders to submit pictures and/or videos to us so we can post them to our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts.
Can I donate without riding a bike?
Yes! If you would like to make a donation of any amount, please visit our donate page.
What if I don't have my own bike?
If you do not have your own bicycle, we encourage you to contact one of Long Beach's bicycle shops or the bicycle share program for information on how you can rent a bicycle for the ride.
Will there be water serving stations throughout, or do I need to bring my own?
Since riders are able to choose their own route this year, we will not have any water serving stations. We recommend bringing your own water for the bike ride.
Are there age requirements to join?
Not at all! We have had riders from 4 years old to 80 years young participate in recent years.
