Celebration and Rides: L.A.’s First Bike Corral at Cafe de Leche
Thanks to the efforts of the bike corral’s advocates, including Matt Schodorf (co-owner of the Cafe de Leche, where the corral will be located), City Councilmember Jose Huizar, and the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council, the first ever bike corral in Los Angeles will finally be open for public use!
To celebrate, a few rides are being organized around the area, starting around 8 AM and ending at the new corral in time for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 AM on Friday, February 18th, with Councilmember Huizar in front of Cafe de Leche!
