How we love thee RIDE-Arc. You showed us a good time on a Friday night. You got nerdy on us. You got on sweaty with us. You rode long into the night with us.

This past Friday, RIDE-Arc, a monthly event on the first Friday that combines night time bicycle riding with architectural themed tours, led a green tour of sustainable buildings, communities and ideas. The near 3-hour tour that began at City Hall East and ended at the Cornfields gave two to three hundred bicyclists a new perspective on green in Los Angeles. From affordable housing to expensive condos and small community gardens to strong co-ops, we discovered our city has a lot more than we thought and still has a good way to go.

The above video shows clips of riding, talking, the LA Eco Village and the Bicycle Kitchen.
