Ride South L.A. – Ride and New Healthy Food Map

You are invited to bring your bike -- and your friends and family -- on Sunday March 3rd at 10am for a bicycle parade to launch our new Healthy Food Map for South L.A.

This easy and celebratory ride will feature stops by local community gardens, and show how bicycling can be a bridge to many hidden local food resources.  Snacks at the end of the two-hour ride will be provided by Community Services Unlimited, which already delivers groceries by bicycle in the area. The ride will be led by South LA's East Side Riders.

Do you have a bike basket?  If so, bring it and help turn the ride into a vegetable delivery demonstration, as we bring vegetable bags to Normandie Elementary for families at that school.

DETAILS: on our website at -- also check out the event page on Facebook for more.

    • Where: Mercado La Paloma entrance (3655 S. Grand Ave, just east of the 110 freeway near Exposition and Grand)
    • When: Sunday, March 3 at 10 AM
    • Who: Anyone with a bike, of any age
Many of you helped make this map, which is available for download for free.  The map features pictures taken on mapping walks in South LA with ordinary cameraphones.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Neelam Sharma, Tafarai Bayne, Dyane Pascall, François Bar, Benjamin Stokes, Otto Khera, Jason Lipeles, George Villanueva, Maren Brombeiss, and the rest of the RideSouthLA team!

PS -- Do you have ideas on how to distribute the new map?  If you can help distribute a few hundred copies, or even a few dozen, and help build demand for healthy food in South L.A., just email us at and we'll send copies your way!
