Lance Armstrong and Shepard Fairey Have 'Hope' in Hollywood

Yesterday evening, cyclist Lance Armstrong rallied friends, the bike-friendly, and local leaders as they took to the streets of Hollywood as part of his Livestrong: Hope Rides Again promotion. Armstrong was joined on two wheels by local civic leaders like Councilmembers Eric Garcetti and Tom LaBonge, and later by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and artist Shepard Fairey all to raise funds and launch a global art exhibition called "Stages, which features the work of 21 artists and will help support the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Fairey's iconic work can be see emblazoned on the buildings of Hollywood; although "Hope" is a key term for Armstrong's exhibit, it's also one that Fairey has used elsewhere—maybe you've seen it? Here he's making do with "Defiance," "Courage," and "Action!"

Here are some images from the event, and after the jump, a video of the yellow-shirted riders on the streets of Hollywood.

Here's what it looked like last night as the hundreds of cyclists, including Armstrong and Councilmembers LaBonge and Garcetti, rounded the corner at Sunset and Vine in Hollywood.
