The Hit the Trail community bike ride will end back at Bridgeport Park with a family fair featuring giveaways, tricycle races, a bike clinic hosted by Performance Cyclery, and healthy food, including free sandwiches provided by Jersey Mikes. The Amgen Tour of California Street Team will be on hand with giveaways to get residents in the spirit for America’s greatest cycling race, which rolls through Santa Clarita on Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17 for the Stage 6 and Stage 7 starts.
