The Arc of Tires Marked the Stop and Start for Many Riders

Yesterday marked the 8th Los Angeles River Ride. Thousands of cyclists, riders and even some Ridazz gathered at Griffith Park to go on organized rides of 10, 50, 70 or 100 miles. The first ride started at 7:00 A.M., and by the time I packed up my bike at around 1:30 most of the rides were completed but the party at Griffith Park continued. There are plenty more photos after the jump.
