Metro Sponsors: Tweed, Moxie and Mustaches Ride: The Historic Arroyo Seco!
January 18 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
Ladies and gents, dress in your finest and roll through history with dashing, distinguished, and dapper bicyclists during C.I.C.L.E.’s Tweed, Moxie and Mustaches Ride!
On Saturday, January 18, through a sponsorship by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change thru LIVE Exchange), will lead a community bicycle ride, “Tweed, Moxie and Mustaches” around the historic Arroyo Seco, traversing the watershed, bike path and local streets. This expedition, open to all cyclists, will make three stops including Judson Studios, housing and creating hand-crafted stained and unique forms of architectural glass since the 1800s; the Lummis Home, a 19th century landmark on the west bank of the Arroyo Seco; and the Audubon Center at Debs Park, an environmental education and conservation center nestled away in Los Angeles’ fourth largest park. Participants will explore the deep history at each stop as well as each location’s intricate connection to the community.
As with all C.I.C.L.E. rides, this ride is family-friendly, leisurely paced and will return to the starting point after the event. C.I.C.L.E. rides are fully supported, led by trained Ride Leaders and volunteers. The ride is under 10 miles. Prior to the ride we will address safe street riding and group ride etiquette to ensure smooth sailing.
