What to do this week in Big Bear

Monday, August 29– The Big Bear Cycling Association hosts bicycle rides nearly every day in Big Bear. Check their website for categories, times and places to register and begin the races. Prizes and awards will be given on Sunday. Don’t miss this fun cycling event.

Tuesday, August 30– The Big Bear Farmers Market starts at 8:30 am every Tuesday at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center. The selection of fruits, veggies, antiques, shoes, toys, jewelry, etc. is different every week. Enjoy the bounty of the Big Bear region!

Wednesday, August 31– Hike, bike, even skate it. The Alpine Pedal Path along the North Shore of beautiful Big Bear Lake offers something for everyone, even those in a wheelchair or pushing a stroller. The 3.5 mile (each way) route that begins at Stanfield Cutoff is paved and level with only a few gentle ups and downs, an easy trek for anyone who laces up tennis shoes or inline skates. Along the way enjoy incredible views of surrounding Southern California mountain peaks, including Snow Summit across the water are featured, and the lake itself is a constant companion, sometimes just a few feet from the path.
