Victory at Dodgertown

9:34 AM PDT on September 4, 2012

Ever since Streetsblog began publishing in Los Angeles, the Dodgers have been something of a punching bag in Streetsblog reports. Whether it's their equating low cost parking with freedom, their lack of support for the Dodger Shuttle or their poor accomadations for cyclists; they've been something of an easy target. And Streetsblog didn't even touch on the dangers of walking in the acres of parking surrounding the stadium.

But that hasn't stopped Streetsbloggers from loving their Dodgers. And last weekend the Dodgers started to pay them back. Organized by Carlos Morales and the Eastside Bike Club, a pack of nearly 100 cyclists took a pleasant ride to Saturday's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks. LAPD's Lieutenant Gordon Helper rode with the riders in a show of support for the first ever "Dodgertown Bike Ride."

Our friend Elson Trinidad was part of the ride. Trinidad is part of the Dodgers Community Advisory Committee and a dedicated cyclist. As he's done before, he made a short video of the event that captures the spirit of the ride and even includes some lovely Dodgers organ music.
