Ride is about 10 miles, mellow leisure pace, all welcome - though you'll need a working bike, and ability to ride 10 miles. We'll be riding some of the areas where CicLAvia expansion is planned for October 9th, with brief stops at community landmarks, speakers telling about community history, etc. 12:30pm - 3:30pm. Departs Hollenbeck Park on 4th Street at St. Louis Street in Boyle Heights. (Free; $5 suggested donation)
