Museum of the Arroyo Day Ride on Sunday, May 16, 2010

A group on a tour of Heritage Square in Highland Park.

Heritage Square, home to some really neat old buildings, will be open on MOTA Day this Sunday, May 16, 2010.

We’re switching things up, and skipping chinese brunch, this weekend for a chance to get some great Guatemalan coffee and tour historic and cultural monuments open for Museums of the Arroyo Day (MOTA Day).

If you’d like to join us, meet at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop (located at 3404 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065) at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 16, 2010.

We are going to leave the shop at 10:30 a.m. and ride to Antigua Coffee House (located at 3400 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065).

After grabbing some of Antigua’s high quality Mayan coffee (they import some really good stuff from Guatemala directly, then roast it in nearby Boyle Heights), we’re going to stop by two or three nearby institutions on the MOTA Day map.

The Flying Pigeon LA crew is heading back to the shop as 12 p.m. approaches. You can return to the shop with us; or, armed with a MOTA Day map, fair weather, and a spirit of adventure, spend your afternoon exploring the area’s major cultural institutions.

Getting to Flying Pigeon LA bike shop – we’re served by the 81 and 83 lines and are just blocks away from the Heritage Square Gold Line Station.

By car, 110 Freeway, exit Avenue 43, left on Figueroa St., park at Avenue 37 and N. Figueroa St.

The Flying Pigeon LA bike shop is located at 3404 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065.
