Speaking of biking, why not pull out those bikes this weekend, folks? Not only is the Bike Show coming to town (notes blogdowntown.com), but the weather looks to be fine for pedaling around town (we'll believe the scattered thunderstorms when we see them).
Compliments of LAist, a few biking resources to get you going:
Some saavy bikers have put together a great site on bike paths in Los Angeles, excellent for the uninitiated. Lots of pictures, with
advice and comments from trail-worn LA bike riders. Stop by the Bicycle Kitchen at 706 Heliotrope @ Melrose, to fix up your wheels and soak in the urban cycling culture. Also, you can get inspired at monthly Critical Mass Bike Rides, or any one a dozen other organzied rides around the city.
Who said LA has to be for drivers only?
