Slow your roll

& share the joy…

Join us on foot or by bike for our LAST RIDE OF 2018: Saturday, December 8th at 10:00am. Get into the winter spirit with like-minded folks and enjoy the gritty wonders of the Los Angeles River Greenway shared path. This ride is suitable for all ages and skill levels, but is especially well suited for beginners! Riders and walkers will gather at Lewis MacAdams Riverfront Park and along Los Angeles River Path in Elysian Valley, ride south to Egret Park, then loop back to Lewis MacAdams Riverfront Park. This month, make a kid’s holiday special by bringing gifts to donate!

On this last ride of the year, LARCEE will be gathering gifts for LAPD Northeast Division’s annual toy drive. Their goal for 2018 is to give away 1,000 toys to children ages 3 to 12 years old, and they need our help to make this a reality!For nearly 30 years, community donations have kept this tradition of generosity going, bringing holiday joy to local families in need. So come ride with us and bring a toy or two for kids 3 to 12-years-old. If you can’t make the ride, but wish to support the drive, visit their fundraising page and make a financial donation.

 Why a Monthly Slow Ride?

We seek to bring walkers and riders, young and old, residents and visitors together in an effort to make the LA River Greenway shared Path safe for all users. Many cyclists speed through, unaware of their legal obligation to yield to pedestrians, especially since this path is not up to code. According to the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, Due to inadequate available width, no separate pedestrian path is available (like the Orange Line Bike Path), thus pedestrians are legal and welcome users of the Los Angeles River Bike Path.”

We also ride for our right to a shared path free of Metrolink’s noise and air pollution; visit LARCEE.org and follow us on Twitter @LARiverCEE for more details on our efforts to #MakeMetrolinkAccountable.
