Save the Date: Streetsblog’s NELA Fundraiser is June 18

Following the good times and good vibes of our fundraiser at the Eco-Village, Streetsblog will be rolling into Northeast Los Angeles for our second ever fundraiser sponsored by the Flying Pigeon L.A. and the Eastside Bike Club.  The details are still being worked out, but I can tell you that we’re going to have two parts to the June 18 fundraiser: a ride and an after-party.  We’ll meet the the Flying Pigeon Bike shop at 6:00 P.M. with kickstands up at 6:30.  The ride and after party will be $10 each or $15 for both.  As always, donations are on a sliding scale.

The ride is tentatively being dubbed the "Where the Train Used to Go" and would follow the route used by the old Red Cars.  Riders will get a ride card, Streetsblog bike sticker and other schwag.  There’s a rumor that refreshments will be following us on bike, but I’d still bring a water bottle.

The after party will start when the ride is over, at about 8:00.  We’ll have a Streetsie’s presentation, food, drink, Streetfilms and  the best company to be found, uhm Northeast of the Bike Oven.

Obviously there’s a lot more details to come, but it’s never too early to save the date!  See you there!
