    [THE BIKE OVEN COLLECTIVE FOLKS WILL BE THERE, TOO!]

    On Sunday, January 6, 2008, bicyclists and motorists alike will take
    to the streets to enjoy the eclectic and divine nacimientos of Los
    Angeles's Eastside. This year's tour starts at the Los Angeles River
    and Gardens Center, 570 W. Avenue 26, Los Angeles, 90065 at 11 am,
    with registration opening at 10 am.. Highland Park's Bike Oven will
    offer free tire checks and sag support. This year, the Charles
    Lummis Home in Highland Park will be one of the many stops. The
    Latino Urban Forum, The Rare Times, Wild Women on Wheels (w2ows),
    C.I.C.L.E., Santa Monica Rivers and Mountains Conservancy, and the
    Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition are co-sponsors of the tour.

    For the 8th year, the annual tour will highlight mini Bethlehems,
    makeshift barns and stables, and in one setting, a complete living
    room reenactment of Jesus' birth and the arrival of the three kings.
    For many bicyclists, this is the first time exploring the

    historically and ethnically rich neighborhoods of Highland Park,
    Lincoln Heights, and Boyle Heights.

    The Nacimiento Tour is one of those rare LA seconds when west-siders
    and east-siders, Latino and non-Latino, come together and
    participate in exploring LA's unique cultural traditions and
    physical landscape in a environmentally friendly way.

    Nacimientos, or nativity scenes, is a tradition that many Latino
    throughout Latin America follow during the Christmas season. This
    tradition takes place in the streets of LA where many immigrants and
    multi-generational families spend countless hours creating
    Nacimientos in their front yards, porches, on roofs, as well as in
    the home.

    Nacimientos range in size, complexity, and creativity. Some can be a
    simple scene of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus to elaborate landscapes with
    tinsel aterfalls, sparkling lights, and hundreds of pieces. Each
    Nacimiento reflects the creator's devotion to Christmas and can be
    very personal in nature.

    For many Latinos, the building of the sets begins the day after
    December 12th, which is the feast day of Our lady of Guadalupe and
    they stay up until January 6th, when the three kings arrive with
    gifts for the new born king.

    Listings and pictures of previous years' tours can be found on
    http://www.theraret imes.com

    The 2008 map will be available online and at the registration on the
    day of the event.

    I will be "sagging" this ride with Harv and other friends on behalf of the Bike Oven. That means I will be at the back with pump, spare tubes, a few tools and a first aid kit. Say Hi if you attend!

    Sadly, rain will cancel this ride. I will try to update closer to Sunday.
