Trying to fill the gaps left in Bike Week programming, we’re leading a pre-Bike Week family ride to the beach.  This ride is for people of all ages and ride experience and is planned to be a slow ride.  We’ll start at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church’s patio (11555 National Blvd., also where we held our re-launch party last August) at 10:30 A.M.  The route: South down Barrington Blvd. before heading west on Venice..  Another turn on Abbot Kinney before heading West on Washington Boulevard.  We’ll have more details on the ride (sponsors, schwag, a stop on the way…) early next week.

How did they do it? The bicycling team raced an airplane from Burbank to Long Beach […]
