The L.A. Bike Tour is on Memorial Day and promises to be even bigger than last year,
when over 15,000+ cyclists did a 20+ mi tour thru downtown L.A.
It was reported to have been the largest mass cycling event in the world (per the speakers last year).
I don't know the stats, but it was AWESOME,
no mean hills and no cars. It was done BEFORE the L.A. Foot Marathon,
with all car traffic held off the route.
A Dawn Ride with Fireworks+.
It was one of the greatest bike events I have ever participated in, and I got the same chills I had from participating in Woodstock decades earlier,
only this was healthier.
Judging by the increasing attendance each year,
this should be the largest yet,
and I even saw bents and kids easily finishing.
I would rate it as a "Do not miss" cycling event and 1/2 to 1/3 the price of the L.A. Marathon
which comes hours later.
I will post some pics from last year in the Photo Section here under "Scotty's Album",
and have included my American Flag setup which I bought at the 99cent store (sorry, it's a Catrike Pocket Tadpole Bent, which is a poor man's Greenspeed. lol)
per prior query about flags.
