Let each of you arise: We Are All French. This Friday night, the cyclists of America's Largest Community Bicycle Ride next ride together in support of love: Bike Ride and Vigil for Terror Victims worldwide. Invite your family, bring your friends and join us when America's Largest Community Bicycle Ride next rides Friday night Friday, November 27, 2015. Thousands of fellow cyclists will ride through the streets of the Los Angeles area and you can ride with us too. The rides are free, (we are donation based) and open to all on a fully inclusive welcoming basis.
This month, on Friday night, November 27, 2015, here in Los Angeles, the City of Angels, cyclists from every walk of life, and background riding together a part of America's Largest Community Bicycle Ride will extend our wish for a world without hate in a vigil to remember Nohemi Gonzalez, the other victims of the Paris terror attacks and those from else where around the world. Together with all those around the world we will stand in condemnation of senseless acts of violence and in support of the universal value of respect for the simple value for human life.
The rides of America's Largest Community Bicycle Ride are indeed more than rides. Bringing together those of all ages, every walk of life, and background, thousands of cyclists peacefully ride together. The rides advocate for increased awareness of cycling issues, encouraging more to choose to ride a bicycle. Cycling together the riders meet others, make new friends and build community where good character and respect for all matters. Join us when we next roll this month on Friday night November 27th and lend your presence in support of a world without hate.
To join us, meet at the start point of the ride at Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, California at 6:30pm, and the ride rolls at 7:29pm. Invite your friends and family. Tell others so they also can ride with us.
This month's ride distance will be shorter than our usual approximately 30 miles, and is anticipated to be approximately 25 miles. There will be a special stop during which riders will hold a Paris related vigil to remember Nohemi Gonzalez, the other victims of the Paris terror attacks and those from elsewhere world wide.
In addition, there will be the usual at least two short stops along the way, and then we will ride to the usual end point of the ride at Sunset Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, California 90027, where the ride will conclude no later than 11:30pm, most likely closer to 11:00pm. Fall in love again with cycling while riding with thousands of other cyclists and explore the Greater Los Angeles area, and support a world without hate.

"I had a wonderful time in the bike ride last night
I came in dead last to the Food 4 Less parking lot and I gained a burst of energy when my family and friends were there cheering for me. I've been riding since November (2013) and this is the longest distance I've gone and I feel good.

Ride Daily, Celebrate Monthly.
Nearly four thousand cyclists choose to ride together, meet others and make new friends while discovering the greater Los Angeles area. The rides celebrate bicycling and encourage cycling as a leisure activity, as a sport or as a means of transportation.
You have all kinds of riders: the semi-pros with their thousand dollars bikes; the off-hour bike messengers that didn't get enough cycling for the day; the hobbyists; the curious with whatever bike they have - from Cannondale, Trek, Schwinn to a classic, Huffy; the wannabe costumed super-heroes (2 Spidermen) & cosplayers ( Chun-Li, animals like bears including a panda); and my favorite - the avant artist cycling fans, with their tricked-out bikes (some glowing bright, some taller than others, and some blasting sound waves).
