Spoke(n) Art Ride on Saturday, April 13, 2013

New Flying Pigeon and Antigua Coffee House

Join us at the Flying Pigeon LA bike shop this Saturday, April 13, 2013 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 usually return to the start point at around 10 or 10:30 p.m. for a reception. This month, the Oven is putting on another show that is well worth sticking around for.

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 Spoke(n) Art Ride was recently awarded a micro grant from NELAart to help fund the expansion of the ride into a mobile venue for clandestine performing arts mini-shows. Does that sound sort of strange and interesting? We hope so. Join us to find out why the good people of NELAart gave us money!

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: http://bikeoven.com/spokenart

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.

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 for this ride.

If you want to follow along using Twitter, Instagram, or Flickr, we are going to use the tag #spokenart with all our photos and posts along the route.
