C.I.C.L.E.’s Urban Expedition: Creek Freak Ride
On Saturday February 20th CICLE hosts our regular monthly urban
expedition ride: this time it’s the L.A. Creek Freak River Bike Tour.
Urban Expeditons are family-friendly, beginner-friendly bike rides!
Bring friends, kids, dress up, celebrate!
The upcoming river
tour will be Saturday Feb 20th. Meet at 12noon (depart at 12:30pm) at
the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens in Cypress Park (570 West
Avenue 26, Los Angeles, CA 90065.) Take your bike on the Metro Gold
Line and exit the Lincoln/Cypress Station. From there, turn left onto
Avenue 26 and go three blocks and the River Center is on your left.
event is FREE (though you can become a CICLE member if you want.) It
will be a leisurely-paced ~2-hour ride, a little riding on streets, but
mostly on the Los Angeles River bike path. Be one of the first to ride
on the brand spankin’ new city bike path through Elysian Valley.
Remember those dips on that old cracked access road? Well it’s all
smooth new asphalt now! Come and check it out!
director and LA Creek Freak blogger Joe Linton will lead the tour,
stopping and talking about the river’s history, flora, fauna, and plans
for the future. Fish biologist Sabrina Drill will also talk on the fish
and fishing in this part of the river. The ride will showcase the
Glendale Narrows – the very nicest soft-bottom part of the river, with
plenty of tall willow trees, fish, birds, and more. It will be an
excellent introduction to the river, and an easy group ride for newer
and less confident bicyclists.
