626 Golden Streets POSTPONED Due to San Gabriel Fires

PicturePerhaps the conflation of area code and date were just too good to be true. The 626 Golden Streets open streets event has been postponed due to the air quality issues caused by wildfires in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Team SBLA is disappointed that we will not get to ride and skate the route this Sunday. We will keep a tear-laden eye out for the reschedule date and make sure to get the word out to our readers. In the meantime, check the 626 Golden Streets website for updates.

As of press time, SBLA was unable to confirm any rumors that the fires had actually burned up the tree where the elusive Golden Streets Sasquatch is known to reside. Another wild hunch we were not able to confirm was whether the now-saddened striding Sisyphean Sasquatch may be genetically related to the zippy zany Zozo.
