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, and encourage 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 for a spooooky (but fun!) ride when America's Largest Community Bicycle Ride next rides on Friday night pre- Halloween, October 27, 2017. Don't forget your costume! Bring your fellow ghouls and goblins. Thousands of our fellow cyclists will ride through the streets of the Greater Los Angeles area. The difference this month is there will be lots of Superheroes, vampiresses, and cartoon characters pedaling in the pack.
Dress up yer bike! Dress up yerself! Bring some candy! Get some candy! By the time we roll, it'll be dark, the leaves will be flying, and it'll be extra spoooky! Seriously, feel free to ride in costume. Creativity encouraged provided costumes are appropriate for all ages and family friendly. Please ensure for your safety, that of your fellow cyclists and those we pass along the way that your ability to see is not impaired and nothing will get caught in the wheels or on others.
Yes, it’s Halloween time so cobble together a costume, climb onto your bike, and roll with us through the streets. To attend, levitate over to 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. As usual, there will be at least two rest stops along the way, with snacks, and drinks available at Support Vehicles and then we will ride to the usual end point of the ride at Sunset Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, California 90027. Invite your friends and family. Spread the word so others can also ride together with us.
"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 and this is the longest distance I've gone and I feel good.
