This month, we're going to join forces with some of our local bike clubs to ride to the Watts Towers! Organized by LACBC and LA Wheelmen member David Nakai, this ride will actually have three different rides for various abilities. You will be able to choose from a medium and moderately flay 37-mile ride, the LA Wheelmen's 49-mile hilly challenge ride through the Baldwin Hills, and a 10-mile ride from Jesse Owens Park to the Towers and back

All rides will reach the Watts Towers, where you'll get the chance to take a tour if you choose. Constructed by Simon Rodia over the span of 33 years, the Watts Towers is a National Historic Landmark that features 17 structures embedded with glass, tile, and porcelain. Other sites along the way of the longer rides include the Great Western Forum, Hollywood Park, Major Taylor Bicycle Route, and Ballona Creek Bike Trail.

So come join us and learn more about LACBC, your local bike clubs, and the LA region on this ride! More info.
