Mark Your Calendars: Second Tour De Ballona on 1/31

Last fall, responding to reports of violence on the Ballona Creek Bike Trail, a group of Streetsbloggers responded by creating their own Livable Streets Discussion Forum and organized the Tour De Ballona ride to educate riders to the safety issue and draw attention to the problem.

On January 31 at 11:00 A.M., the Tour De Ballona is back.  Starting and ending at Culver City Park, at the corner of Duquense Avenie and Jefferson Boulevard in Culver City, this ride is more of a true "tour" with multiple stops and guest speakers throughout the ride.  Riders will learn about environmental and civic groups working on issues around the trail and how to get involved in making it a better place.
