More than 300 participants dressed in their finest tweed and joined the Metro-sponsored C.I.C.L.E. bicycle ride last Saturday, January 18. The Tweed, Moxie and Mustaches Bicycle Ride convened at the Highland Park Metro Gold Line Station and visited historic landmarks in the Highland Park neighborhood on bicycle. Stops included stained glass manufacturer Judson Studios, the historic Lummis House, and the Audubon Center at Debs Park. Check out our video!
Metro/C.I.C.L.E. rides provide an opportunity to comfortably practice riding a bike within the safety of a group, become acquainted with bikeways, and reach local destinations by bike in Los Angeles County. This program helps implement the Board-adopted 2006 Metro Bicycle Transportation Strategic Plan policy to promote bicycling as a legitimate and healthy mode of transportation by providing leadership in building partnerships, funding, and resources for marketing bicycle use. This particular ride had the highest participation to date and was well attended by families and bicyclists of all experiences. The next Metro/C.I.C.L.E ride will take place in Watts on Saturday, February 15, so mark your calendars.
