It's All About the Bicycles This Weekend

The 9th Annual Los Angeles River Ride takes place this Sunday with five different length rides all leaving from the Autry Museum at Griffith Park. The Century begins at 7 a.m. with the 70-, 50- and 35-mile rides leaving at 15 minute intervals thereafter.

A 10-mile Family Ride, taking place completely on the dedicated river bike path starts at 11 a.m. Sign-ups for that start at 10 a.m. to coincide with the beginning of the Fun Fair where the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Moms in Motion will host bike safety demonstrations in a fun and interactive environment.

Bone up on bicycle safety online by reading How Not to Get Hit By Cars at Very important especially after the recent death of mother of two Stacy North who was riding her bicycle on the wrong side of the street near Lake Balboa when she was struck by a DWP truck.

The City of L.A. is calling on all cyclists to review the newly revised draft Bike Plan. Check out the map of Valley streets and proposed improvements, additions to bike routes. Comments must be in by June 12.
