Sunday Funday: The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Ride

I rang for a bike and when it came near
Head badge said “fresh” with an LACBC sticker on the mirror
If anything I could say that this bike was rare 

But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to Bel Air!

I pulled up to a bike rack about seven or eight

And I yelled to my friend “Yo, homes smell you later!”
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To ride on my bike as the Prince of Bel Air!
 

Explore the architectural gems of Bel Air on this 26-mile ride led by LACBC Board President Alex Amerri! Celebrity homes and rarely seen government buildings are all part of these medium-paced ride that features 2,000 feet of climbing and possibly “doing the Carlton.” Bring your fresh, road-worthy bike!

Carmageddon Now a Big Bike Weekend
