Loopalooza is fun, family-friendly event that takes place each year in May, usually on the first Sunday.
It is a great occasion to ride the 12-mile Davis Bike Loop, or part of it. Enjoy fun and informative activities at the nine stations that will be set up along the way. It has occurred every year since 2010, and is organized by Bike Davis and the City of Davis. Below is the information from Loopalooza in 2019.
Come join hundreds of bicyclists to ride the Davis Bike Loop! This is a family-friendly event and a great chance to explore Davis’ parks, greenbelts, and the UC Davis campus with your kids.
There will be 10 stations set up along the loop path with games and other fun activities (see list below). You can start your ride anywhere along the loop and visit the stations in either direction.
