Flying Pigeon LA CicLAvia feeder ride

The Flying Pigeon LA bike shop is proud to partner with Streetsblog LA and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition to produce a NELA bike-stravaganza weekend.

We are kicking off our bike-crazy weekend with a fundraiser ride and party for Streetsblog LA on Friday, June 14, 2013 at 6 p.m.

On Saturday we’re hosting a tour of local raspaderos (Mexican fruit-based shave ice and milkshake shops) along N. Figueroa St. with a Raspados Ride on Saturday June 15, 2013 at 3 p.m.

Our wild wheeled weekend will wrap up on Sunday morning with our Good Morning Vietnam Ride (a special version of our Get Sum Dim Sum Ride) wherein we will ride to local Vietnamese-American fusion restaurant Good Girl Dinette on Sunday, June 16, 2013 at 10 a.m.

All these rides are free-of-charge, low mileage, slow paced and an excellent opportunity to share this most excellent community with others.
