Get Sum Dim Sum Ride #11 – Hong Kong Stylin’

Dim Sum from our trip to Ocean Seafood in Chinatown.

Dim Sum from our trip to Ocean Seafood in Chinatown.

Flying Pigeon LA is hosting the Get Sum Dim Sum Ride again this Sunday, October 19, 2008. This week, we’re riding to Triumphal Palace – a delicious Hong Kong style dim sum house in Alhambra.

[UPDATE: As of 5 p.m. on October 18, 2008 we are totally out of loaner bikes! If you’ve called in advance to reserve a bike, we’ve got one waiting for you. If not, please bring your own bike (or a friends) or join us next week!]

Meet us on Sunday, October 19, 2008 at 10 a.m. (ride leaves at 10:30 a.m.) at 3404 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90042. We roll at 10:30 a.m.

If you don’t have a bike, we’ll let you use one of ours (free of charge). To help us limit the time waiting at the restaurant, please leave a note for us below so we can give a heads up to the folks who run the dim sum house we will visit. Make sure to bring some cash to pay for the dim sum ($15 ought to do it) and look forward to some good times with some good food.

A few minor things: If you’re bringing your own bike, make sure it works! If you bring a young son or daughter, they should wear a bike helmet (anyone under 18 is required to wear a helmet in California), unless, of course, you want to deal with a ticket from a bored cop on a Sunday morning.

    You can’t believe how excited I was to find this blog entry! I’ll arrive in L.A on Tuesday Oct 21st and the two main ingredients of my plan for the visit is to do my sight seeing by bike and find a Dim Sum place.

    Please let there be an event on the Oct 26 and I promise to show up.

    I’m doing it. I have a bike, but I’d like to test ride one of the Pigeons!

    Thanks for all the positive comments folks.
    As of Saturday afternoon we are out of loaner bikes for tomorrow’s ride. If you have your own bike please do come along for the ride with us but we cannot accept any more reservations for the 19th. If you are interested in joining us the 26th and need a loaner bike (again, we offer these for free) please contact us via email, phone or leave your name and email contact with us here in the blog section.

    Next week we plan on returning to Chinatown and heading to either Empress Pavilion or another large dim sum palace.
