    If only my wife rode, she'd be all over this. I might just go this year to make her jealous of all the free admissions. Will I need walking shoes?

    From the LA Times:


    Bicyclists take up pedaling art

    Published March 6, 2008 by LA Times
    By Mindy Farabee
    ACCORDING to Josef Bray-Ali, "You haven't lived until you've seen a 35-year-old mother beating down a burning piñata."

    And he should know. For the last two years, Bray-Ali (who runs Bike Oven, a repair shop/art gallery) has conducted Spoke(n) Art, a biking tour of Northeast L.A.'s art galleries. Largely conceived as an exercise in fun -- think after-parties with flaming piñatas -- Spoke(n) Art regularly attracts eclectic groups of 60 to 70 people every month. But it's far from the only cycling gallery tour to be gathering speed. Somehow, it seems, bikes and art just go together.

    "Bikes can go where cars can't take you," says Alex Amerri. A recent Sci-Arc grad, Amerri created RIDE-Arc with some schoolmates in July 2005. Designed with advanced riders in mind, RIDE-Arc follows the architecture -- distances and exotic locales (Watts at night!) be damned. Thoroughly researched, and featuring expert speakers (from halfway house residents to academics) and unique themes (e.g., "The Sex Ride," "As Seen on TV"), Amerri's tours attract around 100 people every time. "It's really a dialogue about how all these design elements are related," he says. On a bicycle, these connections become apparent: "You're constantly being stimulated by everything around you."

    Whole cities are getting in on the action. Next week, Shay Sanchez and Liz Elliott are reprising Pasadena ArtRide, a five-gallery sampler of Pasadena ArtNight, the biannual extravaganza featuring the city's many theaters, museums and galleries. The duo -- co-directors of Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange, or C.I.C.L.E. -- have made a point of designing a scenic, leisurely paced itinerary. Putting people on bikes, they've found, freed strangers up to mingle. "Cycling is about engagement," says Elliott. "Art does something to you emotionally, it enlivens you, wakes you up. And that's what this ride does."

    And participants can take that engagement to whatever level they'd like. "Last month I rode in [to Spoke(n) Art] on a rickshaw with sound bending equipment," says Bray-Ali. "We're part of the art show."


    SPOKE(N) ART RIDE

    WHERE: Meet at the intersection of York Boulevard and North Figueroa Street, Highland Park



    WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Sat.

    Walking shoes? LOL

    I mean , you do have to walk through the museums and look at the art...but we park the bikes right near by and guard them...

    Doesn't she ride at all? This is a very easy ride.

    An experienced cyclist who would like to keep an eye out for the less-experienced, assist our sweep, help watch that parked bikes remain unmolested...

    I should have been more clear. I meant to ask if the walking is little enough to do on cleated road shoes or if I should bring something to change into, or cleat covers... or if I can ride the bike through the museum and track stand at each exhibit.

    She doesn't even have a bike and she is not interested in riding anywhere the distances that we do, but she has been warming up to the idea of getting a tandem after we rented one in Santa Barbara.

    haha...track stand...no...

    hey a tandem would be great for this ride.

    Anyway the cleat thing is more whatever you want. There will be five stops, each about 20 minutes, so...how comfortable are you walking around in them?

    I think I'm going to be lazy and just use the cleated shoes...I can't stand carrying around extra shoes and other stuff.

    Slight change:

    The route worked out wonderfully, though we did make one simple
    adjustment.

    As we depart One Colorado on Union, we will be taking an immediate
    left turn onto DeLacey St.rather than continue down Union St. to St. John.

    Here's the new gmaps route:
    http://www.gmap- pedometer. com/?r=1693758
