Southern California - LA Bike Coalition "Car Free Friday" ride
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

Last Friday was the LABC's "Car Free Friday" group ride that started at Hollywood and Western and ran through downtown ending at City Hall. This was my first group ride, (other than the LA Acura Bike Tour), and it was a blast. It was early enough that it didn't kill your morning and had lots of good company and a beautiful route through Silverlake into downtown. It was very liberating to travel en masse with fellow bikers on a leisurely tour instead of the usual point A to point B daily White Knuckler. Just wondering if any other forum readers went, and if this will be a regular event each month.

CAR-FREE FRIDAY+CITY OF LIGHTS!!
Showcasing CITY OF LIGHTS PROGRAM
Last Friday of Every Month is Car-Free Friday!!
WHEN: Friday April 24th, 8:00 am
WHERE: MacArthur Park at 7th and Park View
On Friday April 24th, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) will be kicking off their City of Lights Program on the fourth official "Car-Free Friday" bicycle ride. Join us and Councilmember Ed Reyes and help hand out bicycle lights and safety tips to low-income Spanish speaking cyclists before we ride to City Hall from McArthur Park.
LACBC CITY OF LIGHTS PROGRAM provides bicycle lights and safety information to low-income Spanish speaking bicyclists and pedestrians to minimize the risk of injury. While low income riders benefit from the advantages of riding, bicyclists and pedestrians can be inexperienced or unfamiliar with safe bicycling and walking habits.
This month's goal: Get 2 friends or co-workers who do not ride regularly yet to pledge to ride on Friday, March 27th.
ps. Ed Reyes was the councilmember who issued the motion to revisit the bicycle license and its relevance. It is because of his initiative that bicycle advocates were able to get the moratorium on the Bicycle License Law.
