Join us at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop and Bike Oven this Saturday, August 10, 2012 for another Spoke(n) Art Ride gallery tour.
Meet at the NELA bike-coffee metroplex located at 3404 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065 at 6 p.m. The ride leaves at 6:30 p.m. We return to the start point at around 10 or 10:30 p.m. for a reception.
The Spoke(n) Art Ride is a monthly tour of galleries open for NELAart’s Second Saturday – a special night when area galleries and studios open their doors to the public until the wee hours.
The ride is a slow-paced cruise, stopping every couple of minutes. Sometimes we veer off the beaten path, sometimes a backyard party – it all changes slightly from month to month. For more general information about the ride, check out the Bike Oven’s Spoke(n) Art page.
We obey major traffic lights on this ride, we are polite to gallery owners and the general public on this ride. This ride is about art, community, the city, conversation, and living the good life without damaging the lives of others. If you want to “get faded” and “mash” – please do go on another bike ride. Seriously, this is Saturday night, you are free to do as you please. Don’t ruin our fun and we won’t ruin yours.
This month we’re going on a gallery tour, starting with a stop at the Bike Oven where a bike polo demonstration of “Knife Fights” will be taking place. At the end of the ride, at the Flying Pigeon shop, musician/songwriter Crosby Tyler is going to play a show for us.
Don’t have a bike? No problem! We rent single speed beach cruisers with blinkie lights for $20. We have a fleet of bikes – just make sure to show up at or before 6 p.m. to ensure you get a bike! Things get hectic at start time, with over 100 riders congregating at the shop before we leave.
There is a Facebook event page for this ride.
