There are a couple of unique and interesting group rides during the 10 days of Bike Winter LA 2006 coming up next month I just want to spread the word about.
The first is the free Sixth Annual Nacimiento Ride at noon on January 8, encompassing about a 15-mile, family-friendly tour through Highland Park, Lincoln Heights and Boyle Heights that begins and ends at the Boyle Heights park at First Street and Chicago. An after-ride party is scheduled to take place at downtown’s 727 Gallery (727 S. Spring Street). More info available at Bicycle Kitchen’s website.
On January 14 at 9 a.m. the free 7- or 14-mile Tour de Watts will get rolling from Simon Rodia’s Watts Towers (1727 East 107th Street) on a route that will include the Compton Creek bike path. For more info see the Tour de Watts blog.
