Small Crowd, Great Ride for the Westside Ride to the Pier
I wanted to take a second to thank everyone who came out for Streetsblog’s (First Annual?) Westside Ride to the Pier. Despite leaving a nice footprint in social media and local websites, a mere ten souls showed up; but that didn’t stop us from having a great ride. Originally billed as a family ride, we did have four riders/passengers under the age of 18, one of whom literally rode circles around me at one point.
Our group had so much fun together, we didn’t stop at the Venice Fishing Pier as we planned, but continued north of the beach path to the Santa Monica Pier where we had lunch before returning. We’ll be back next year with another pre-bike event. After all, it’s not always the size of the ride, but the F.U.N. that was had.
Thanks to CLIF Bar, Bikerowave and St. Andrew’s for supporting the ride.
