Each year, the annual OCTA Bike Festival features fun in the sun, safety tips, and giveaways for the whole family. Traditionally, the event occurred in Huntington Beach. This year, it moves to Dana Point on April 30 as part of the Dana Point Grand Prix, now in its 11th year of celebrating professional cycling and all things bike.

BMX stunt riders will strut their stuff with flips and tricks and local bike shops will be onsite to offer free bike safety checks. To help keep OC cyclists safe, OCTA will give away bike lights and other prizes throughout the day.
The OCTA Bike Festival is the first event in a month-long celebration of Bike Month in May. To encourage OC residents to get active and use bikes as part of their commutes and for recreation, OCTA is offering prizes for those who pledge to bike during Bike Month. Pledge at the OCTA Bike Festival or online for a chance to win a bike or a Fitbit. Everyone who pledges will receive a coupon from Jax Bicycle Center. Discover more ways to celebrate Bike Month here.
Companies that are helping OC residents stay active during Bike Month include OCTA Bike Month sponsors Spectrumotion, experian™, Dana Point Grand Prix of Cycling powered by Kingston, Strava™, and Jax Bicycle Center.
