Join Pitzer friends with your bicycle and ride from campus to beautiful Seal Beach. The approximately 50-mile bicycle ride is mostly downhill. We’ll even transport your bicycle back to campus by truck and give you a ride back to Claremont on an air-conditioned bus.

Experience Los Angeles with Free Wheelin’ Friends

Pitzer is all about fun, family and friends. That’s what makes this bike ride one of the most appealing outdoor activities this fall. No athletic training required. No special gear required (except for something orange to show your colors)

L.A.’s by-ways will give you new appreciation for the California experience

Our guides will show you the best of the Southland’s bicycle by-ways. You’ll be among Pitzer friends, riding your own bicycle, and get lunch, too!
