Big Bear, Ca, May 6, 2011, 12:00pm – As warmer weather has returned to the Big Bear Valley, the Big Bear Cycling Association will kick off their weekly ride schedule tomorrow with the first Community Ride of the season.  The Cycling Association has a full schedule planned this year, adding a few new weekly rides including Mountain Bike Mondays, and Timed Training Ride Thursdays, where participants will take part in timed training rides where times will be recorded and cyclists can then measure their progress throughout the season.  The Cycling Association encourages everyone to come to the Community Ride tomorrow.  “Dust off your bike, and come ride with us,” said Craig Smith, President of the Cycling Association, “this ride is for everyone.”  For the first Community Ride, a mechanic will be on hand to do basic bike repairs at 8:00am.  The Community Ride will meet at the Copper Q in the Village on Pine Knot.  “Community rides are social, easy, fun bike rides,” said Smith, “and all ages are invited and encouraged to come ride.”  For more information go to
