Santa Monica: This Weekend Tour da Arts Vol. 5 & Spoke Meets To Talk Michigan Avenue Greenway

12:08 PM PDT on August 16, 2013

SMMOA Tour Da Arts

This Sunday is the 5th edition of the annual Tour da Arts (11am to 5pm at Bergamot Station), put on by the Santa Monica Museum of Art. If you are unfamiliar with the event, it is the premiere mass bike ride meets arts, music and dance event of the year in Santa Monica. If you are in Santa Monica, or near by, or looking for an excuse to come out this way, come out, seriously.

It's always among my favorite events of the year, and Asuka Hisa, the Director of Education and Public Programs for SMMoA, is a master mind at putting together an engaging cultural event, and this one is always family friendly as well, and tied to building local bike culture by connecting points and venues in the city by bike. C.I.C.L.E. and Santa Monica Spoke will be helping to ride lead, and the Bikerowave will be doing bike maintenance. More details, RSVP form (event is free), and an itinerary of performances are on SMMoA's site here. Also, be sure to look out for the Santa Monica Next table at the starting point.

Tomorrow at 11 am at 502 Colorado community room, Santa Monica Spoke is holding a public meeting featuring a staff presentation on the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway proposal (I wrote about the first public workshop in March in the Pico Neighborhood here) with a chance to discuss and give input on ideas. The meeting will discuss other aspects of Bicycle Action Plan implementation and the Pedestrian Action Plan being drafted and other priorities for Spoke. More on all that can be found here.
