[[image:bw_graphic_copy1.jpg::inline:1]]BikeWinter, Los Angeles’ only homegrown, grassroots, bicycle festival is set to begin again – and everyone’s invited! The festival will get rolling on Friday, Feb- ruary 2, 2007 with a nighttime party in Santa Monica following the Santa Monica Critical Mass ride. After the opening night party, the festival will continue across Los Angeles with daily bike events for nearly two-weeks. A full schedule of rides is available at http://bikela.org

BikeWinter is organized by an eclectic mix of Los Angeles based cyclists who aim to spread their love of cycling with others. The bicycle events range from relaxed neighborhood tours to adrenaline fueled hill climbs. Some rides have whimsical themes, like the “Tandemonium” ride scheduled on Saturday, February 17th, 2007 (a “tandem” is a two-seated bicycle) – perfect for couples. Other rides are more politically motivated, like the “Take Me To Your Leader” ride scheduled for Tuesday, February 6, 2007 – the ride ends at the City of Los Angeles’ Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) hearing, and riders are encouraged to fill out a speaker card and have their voices be heard.

Whatever the theme, or the motivation, everyone is welcome to join in the fun. In addition to rides cre-ated by the BikeWinter committee, individual cyclists are invited to post their own rides and events.
