Whitaker Family Fun Ride

July 18, 2021
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Whitaker Family Fun Ride

Presented by M&T Bank


Bring your family and join Whitaker Center for our first Whitaker Family Fun Ride! The 5-mile ride will have a rolling start at the Carousel Pavilion on City Island then follow the Susquehanna River along Riverfront Park. Following the ride, participants are invited to join in a finish line celebration.

The event will benefit Whitaker Center’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) programs. It will consist of a rolling start (to stagger the participants) with Rest Stops/Water Stops along the route.

Check-in begins at 8:30 AM, and you can start the route anytime between 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM. Keeping safety measures in mind we will have a rolling start to the event. Helmets are required by all riders.

*Please Note*

Families can park on City Island but will be charged if they arrive after 10 AM.
