If You’re Riding the All City Toy Ride, We Need Your Help

For years, L.A. Streetsblog referred to the All City Toy Ride as the best bike event in the country that very few people outside of L.A. have heard of. This year, we’re going to do our part to change all that. We’ve recruited film maker Rob Adams, the same film maker who made our two CicLAvia Streetfilms and “You’re Never Too Old…,” to make a film on the 6th installment of the All City Toy Ride.

However, since there are (at least) twelve starting points to the ride, we’re going to need some help. We’re looking for volunteers to shoot either a little video or digital photos at the various start points to send to Adams to help us make the best, most comprehensive, video that we can.  If we use any of your work we’ll send you a Streetsblog tote bag and include your name in the credits of the film.

If you’re interested in helping us out, email me, damien at streetsblog dot org, and let me know where you’ll be starting the ride and I’ll get you the information on how to send us your work.

For those of you that don’t know what the All City Toy Ride is.  All City sees riders from at least a dozen start points around the city descend on Downtown Los Angeles with toys to benefit the  Alliance for Children’s Rights.  For more information, visit Midnight Ridazz.  If you can’t make it on Friday but want to help, bring a toy to our fundraiser and we’ll see it gets donated.

It’s Friday, and that means throughout Los Angeles, cyclists are gearing […]
