MOM Rida "Active" picks up another fare during the Downtown LA Art Walk on Thursday, July 8, 2010


Flying Pigeon LA rode through the Downtown LA Art Walk last night in high style with a pair of bakfiets and a pedicab.

Active (a member of the MOM Ridaz) hustled the pedicab from North East LA all the way into Downtown. With the group yelling out “Pedicab rides!” he was able to pick up a few fares, and dropped some people off next to their cars.

I stopped by a food truck bonanza on Spring Street and grabbed some sliders from the Flying Pig Truck as well as some Spanish food to-go from a truck dispensing tapas.

Did we stop in at any galleries? Nah. It was more fun to ride around looking at the crowd of under-30′s dressed in their “going out” clothes. I think we’ll be back next month with more cargo bikes to cruise the neighborhood (and stop in at some galleries on “art night”).

    Cool, great to see some pedicabs in downtown LA. Whatever became of the draft ordinances the City was working on last year? They seemed a bit over the top, of particular note was a proposed dress code and mandatory helmets for passengers! Nice Classic MSP – great color! :)

    The LADOT introduced their ridiculous regulations to the Transportation Commissioners and got laughed out of the room. There were several working groups setup, but that fizzled quickly. I don’t know what happened since then, but I am sure that the LADOT will sit on their hands for all eternity on this issue.
