Our upcoming Get Sum Sim Sum Ride, on Sunday, April 19, 2009, does not have an official destination set (yet), but we’ve already gotten press about it!

Here is our spiel, courtesy of the LA Times’ “The Guide”:

“Get a deliciously (un)healthy dose of bao, shu-mai, har gao and other Cantonese delicacies at the monthly Get Sum Dim Sum Ride. Adam and Josef Bray-Ali of Flying Pigeon LA, which specializes in the gearless, retro-styled bikes ubiquitous in Beijing, lead the ride. It starts at a station along the Gold Line and visits a different Chinese restaurant each time. Except for the meal’s cost, which all participants split equally, there’s no fee to ride; the next one is 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 19. www.flyingpigeon-la.com.
