Sunday, October 5, 2014: Ride to CicLAvia

Join us as we bike to Expo and take the train to DTLA to experience CicLAvia! 

Ride with us for your chance to win Conservatory gift cards, water bottles and more! 

This month our free Family Fun Ride begins at 9:00 a.m. at Linwood Howe Elementary School  (4100 Irving Place., Culver City, CA 90232)  and heads to the Culver City Expo Station. MAP

We'll take the train to Downtown Los Angeles and join in the fun of CicLAvia - the open streets event that is transforming LA County. CicLAvia closes streets to car traffic along the route so partcipants can experience the City from a whole new angle - without cars! You can bike, walk, skate or scoot... anything but a motorized vehicle. Great food, street entertainment and friendly people everywhere!

NOTE: This is a one-way guided ride. Instructions and meetup time for heading back to Culver City will be provided, but it is not required to come back with the group. All riders under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

COST: As always our rides are free, but unfortunately, Metro is ot. So, for this ride you will need to purchase a Metro TAP card and train fare. TAP cards cost $1.00 and fare is $1.75 each way per rider ($1.00 for K-12 students). Please be sure to bring at least $4.50 for a TAP card and fare for each person in your party. If you already have a TAP card, we'll show you how to check the balance and load additional fare if necessary.
