CicLAvia to the Sea Feeder Ride Sun April 21

CicLAvia To the Sea is happening on Sunday, April 21, 2013 and features a route from downtown LA to Venice Beach (that's right, you'll be able to ride your bike to the beach!) If you don't know what CicLAvia is, its a big, free festival where they shut down miles of streets in LA for bikes & pedestrians and have performances, events, food trucks along the route. It's a great way to explore and see LA!

Caltech BikeLab will be leading a feeder ride for CicLAvia that leaves from Caltech and arrives in downtown LA for the festival. We will be passing many sights along the way.

Meet at 9 am at the Caltech Y (505 S. Wilson Ave, Pasadena CA) with your bicycle, in good running order and a helmet. (Come ten minutes early if you need a bit of air from a pump or very minor adjustments)

The public is welcome. We will be riding at a relaxed pace, with a few 4% grades. The ride is around 9 miles.
You can bike back or take Metro very easily back to Pasadena since the CicLAvia route crosses many Metro stations.

Our friends at C.I.C.L.E. are hosting the PASADENA STREET ART RIDE at The Pasadena Earth and Arts Festival the day before CicLAvia on April 20, 2013. Meet at Memorial Park at 11:00 for a family friendly art-filled ride around Pasadena. More information here!
