Bike the Vote with Congresswoman Jane Harman and Assembly Candidate Betsy Butler

Bike the Beach is an exciting get-out-the-vote (GOTV) bike ride from Torrance Beach to Venice Beach celebrating two of the greatest and most important things we can do: BIKE and VOTE! We kickoff at Torrance Beach, with rally stops featuring food, information and fun at Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Playa del Rey and Venice. At the ride’s culmination in Venice, there’s an awesome party at sculptor Guy Dill’s art studio – with lots of food, mariachi, margaritas…and some feel good political speeches to get you fired up and ready to go! For people that need a ride back to the South Bay from Venice, we’ll have vans and trucks ready to take you and your bikes. Its free and fun for the whole family! Please register to help us get an accurate head count for catering purposes.
