The Return of RIDE-Arc: Santa Monica Bicycle Tour this Friday
In its hey-day, RIDE-Arc's monthly rides would take cyclists around the city, exploring architecture, environmental efforts and Hollywood history. Compared to other group bicycle rides like Midnight Ridazz and CRANK Mob, RIDE-Arc is the smart, mature and law-abiding sibling. Over the past couple years, its leadership has gone on hiatus, only offering a ride here and there. Good news, however, came today as they announced via e-mail a Santa Monica-focused ride for Friday evening:
How can we get from point A to point B? Is this really a "Bronze" level city? Where does this city end, anyway? Why is there so much traffic? What about pedestrians? Can people stop walking on the bike path?!?! Join RIDE-Arc for a 16 mile route through Santa Monica and vicinity as we discuss issues of transportation, access, and urban planning. This ride is being held in conjunction with Diane Meyer's exhibition of works "Without a Car in the World" at the 18th Street Gallery in Santa Monica.
