Have you already broken your New Year’s Resolutions? Now is your chance to pedal into a resolution you can keep! Join C.I.C.L.E. and friends as we explore the Silver Lake and Los Feliz neighborhoods by bicycle in search of green and sustainable living ideas on our Urban Expeditions “Green Resolutions Ride”.
The Green Resolutions Ride meets on Saturday January 26, at 10:00 AM at the Silver Lake Recreation Center Park. The first stop on the Expedition route is the Silver Lake Farmer’s Market where riders will meet “Farmer Eddie” and become acquainted with reasons for supporting local farmer’s markets. From there, we’ll quickly cruise over to the Eco-Home and embark on a self-guided tour of this ongoing living research center, followed by a group Q&A with the homestead owner. On the way back, we’ll swing by the Bicycle Kitchen and introduce people to this energetic community-run bike repair space, and meet with some of the “cooks" that help create bike-magic at the Kitchen.
The Green Resolutions ride is open to everyone at no charge, and families are encouraged to participate in the ride. Rides are short, leisurely paced, and perfect for the beginning rider. Bikes should be in good running order, and all participants under 18 must wear a helmet. Children under age 9 should be on a tag-a-long, bike trailer, tandem, or other safe child-carrying device.
