Wristbands are exchanged for poker cards and the best 5 card hand wins! Participants who get 6 cards (one extra for the bonus destination) - use the 5 best cards. Ties will be decided by one card playoffs and the highest card wins (Ace, King).

As Swami’s cycling team, race director Fred Muir says, “Our Carlsbad Family Fun Ride is the perfect vehicle to get the word out that cycling in the Village is a healthy alternative to driving. With added bike lanes, and 100 newly installed bike racks, it’s a wonderful place to take the family on weekends.”
