Wednesday is one over-booked night.  What do people have against Tuesday?  Oh, and check out that fundraiser on Friday.  Sounds like fun.  You should go.

Wednesday – Marks the beginning of the summer bike series known as Tour LaBonge.  City Council Transportation Committee Chair Tom LaBonge leads a series of rides throughout his district.  Get the details for this ride, in our calendar section.

Thursday – Another public meeting for the L.A. County Bike Master Plan.  This time, the meeting is in Newhall.

ThursdayFriday – Leaders from the U.S. High Speed Rail Association head to ground zero for coming HSR construction, Downtown Los Angeles!  This two-day conference is sure to be packed full of information about the capital project that could change the landscape of transportation in California.  Get the details, here.

Friday – Back in the days of yore, the second Friday of the month was "Northeast L.A. Critical Mass."  That ride seems to have petered out, but you can still take a ride in NELA, this time as part of a Streetsblog fundraiser.  $10 gets you Clif Bars, stickers, other goodies and a great ride…Get all the details, and make fun of the graphic for the ride cards, here.

Saturday –  Explore the art and culture of Echo Park and Filipino Town with the "Art Folk Ride."  Check it out, here.
