Busy October Weekend w. Spoke(n) Art Ride and CicLAvia

Spoke(n) Art Ride Passenger

What a weekend we have planned out!

This Saturday, October 9, 2010, the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop and the Bike Oven will once again put on the Spoke(n) Art Ride. The Spoke(n) Art Ride is a slow-paced bicycle tour of art galleries, alleys, back yard parties, and events put together by NELAart.org on the 2nd Saturday of the month. If you’d like to join us, come to the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop on Saturday evening around 6 p.m. The first group of riders (the “fast pack”) will take off around 6:30, the rest of us will follow behind going at a normal pace. The ride ends where it begins, at the Bike Oven and Flying Pigeon LA bicycle industrial complex at the corner of Avenue 37 and North Figueroa Street in Cypress Park.

This Sunday, October 10, 2010 a group of local bike riders are going to meet at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop at 9 a.m. (ride leaves at 9:30 a.m.) to take part in the CicLAvia. CicLAvia is a 7.5 mile route open to bikes, pedestrians, rollerbladers, and anyone wanting to take back our city streets for people, commerce, and some good old fashioned goofing around and fun. The ride leaving our shop will link up with the “Midday Ridazz” kid and family ride (a play on the Midnight Ridazz name).

If you’re looking for a bike to ride the CicLAvia on, maybe carry some kids or a picnic basket, stop by the shop and have a look at all the fabulous bikes, bags, and baskets we’ve brought to L.A. from all over the world made for just such an occasion. Pictured above is the Nihola Family ($3,199), perfect for riding two or more kids around town and running errands.

This is going to be a big weekend for cycling in L.A. – don’t miss it! You’ll be able to tell your grandkids you were there at the turning point in history when bikes started getting taken seriously by the big wigs in City Hall. I have a feeling it’s also going to be a lot of fun!
