    • Tuesday – It’s back to school day. If you’re planning to walk or bicycle with your kid to a new place, make sure to check out the route ahead of time. We’ll have a more complete back to school guide later today.

    • Saturday – Anyone not wanting to drive or take the bus to Saturday’s Dodger game will be lucky to have a choice of advocacy groups to join for a trip to the ballpark. L.A. Walks is planning a group walk from the Gold Line Chinatown Station. The Eastside Bike Club is planning their own ride from the El Sereno Parklet (which will also feature a night-time ride through DTLA after the game.)
