Cycling in place tackles stamping out cancer in this fundraising activity, now in its third year. Even if you aren't riding, head on down to the Manhattan Beach Pier on Sunday, May 17 to support the riders. Besides, you never know what athlete or celebrity you'll see working up a sweat for charity.

Go for a walk!
Just about any neighborhood in MB is fun to walk so pick yours! Of course, downtown MB with its cute shops and great eateries is fun to stroll. And North Manhattan Beach's shops and restaurants and spas along Highland and Rosecrans avenues are charming, too.
Then, of course, there are MB's many parks, the beach, the shoreline, sand dunes, The Strand, walk streets, Veterans Parkway, Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden, and much more.
Happy Weekend, y'all!
