Mark Your Calendars: October 25 Will Be First Tour de Ballona

10_3_08_ballona.jpg

After Streetsblog reported on a cyclist being attacked on the Ballona Creek Bicycle Trail, trail users contacted me asking, "what can we do?"  In response, a Livable Streets Discussion Forum was formed and we decided the best way to make the trail safer was to increase the number of people who use it.  Thus, the first of what will hopefully be a series of "Tour de Ballona" rides was scheduled for October 25 at 11:00 A.M.  The start point is at the Culver Drive/Sawtelle Boulevard Entrance and the end point will be at the bridge that crosses into Playa del Rey.

As we get closer and closer to the date, more co-sponsors and details will come out about the ride.  Be sure to check back here regularly or we'll just see you on the trail!
