Urban Expedition: MADE IN LA ride.

Jobs, manufacturing, and the local economy! Come tour downtown L.A. from the comfort of your bike and learn about businesses that manufacture right in the heart of LA!

On Saturday, September 17th, C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change thru LIVE Exchange)

will lead their Urban Expedition group ride, “Made in LA”. This expedition, open to all cyclists, will navigate the streets of downtown and expose riders to institutions that pride themselves on products, you guessed it, made in the City of Angels. These stops include visits to Homeboy Industries, El Pato Factory, and the Angel City Brewery.

The tour will be 8 miles, leisurely paced and family-friendly.
