Bikeathon: Communities Over Freeways
When: Saturday, March 26; 9:00 AM
Where: Long Beach or Los Angeles starting points
The Coalition for Environmental Health and Justice (CEHAJ) is hosting a bikeathon event on the Lower Los Angeles River on March 26th. The event’s slogan is “Communities Over Freeways.” The goal is to raise awareness and funding – in opposition to the widening of the 710 Freeway. It’s a fairly short bike ride (about 8 miles) and all on bike path, so almost anyone can do it! Suggested donation is $5. There are two starting points (both register 9:30am, depart: 10am) :
- Los Angeles starting point: the Atlantic Boulevard entry point of the South County Los Angeles River Bike Trail – at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and District Boulevard (in the city of Vernon, near Maywood.)
- Long Beach starting point: Ocean Boulevard entrance to the LARIO L.A. River Bike Trail – next to the Golden Shore Wetlands, on Golden Shore Drive, just south of where the 710 Freeway crosses under Ocean Boulevard.
