This past Sunday May 7, Rich City Rides collaborated with the East Bay Pickleball Association on our Sunday Community-care ride.
We brought 13 community riders to Booker T. Anderson Park for a fun round of pickleball. In the end we covered 6.54 miles and a good time was had by all.
We want to give a special shout out to Darlene Rios Drapkin, the USAPA Pickleball Ambassador, for sharing the joy of Pickleball! If you would like to learn more about pickleball and how you can play it in Richmond, check out their awesome Facebook page!
