Bike Ride

Check this out. There’s going to be a fun bike ride going on in South LA this Sunday! This is a repost from Eddie of University Park Family:

Join us for an Informal bike ride to explore some potential streets for South L.A. CicLAvia. All you need is a working bike and some free time – ride will be about 15-25 miles – about 2.5-3 hours – liesurely pace. I did the Crenshaw Crush with these guys last year and it was a blast – 20 miles and it was easy.

Streets to Explore:
Jefferson Blvd.
Hoover Street
Vermont Blvd.
Central Blvd.
Figueroa Blvd.
Vernon Ave.
Slauson Blvd.

Los Angeles hosted it’s first Ciclavia last year and it was a blast. The city closes the streets for a long ways and opens them up to people on foot and bikes. It’s a temporary creation of a park connecting the city.

In Bogata, Columbia they host ciclovía every Sunday on 80 miles of city streets.

“A Ciclovía is not just for recreation. It is social integration,” the website says.

The organizers were your typical do gooders that make LA a better place -like the LA County Bicycle Coalition, Jenn Su of GOOD and who I worked with as an intern at Public Matters,and Joe Linton, an artist who took me and dozens of others on tours of the bridges that cross the Los Angeles River. And a whole lot more.
