This month it will be opening night for a Monsters on Bikes exhibit at the Bike Oven and at the Flying Pigeon bike shop. Check out monstersonbikes.blogspot.com
Dress as a monster and bring your muppets and puppets.
At 7 PM we will depart from York and Figueroa and ride to around 5 great art galleries. From there we will go to the Bike Oven for the Monster with Bikes exhibit. There will be a pinata, kiddie bike races and possibly a live performance as well. Activities at the Bike Oven start around 10 PM.
What is the Spoke(n) Art Ride?
The Spoke(n) Art bicycle ride is a free, once-a-month, bicycle tour of art galleries in North East Los Angeles. The ride takes place on the second Saturday of each month - a special night in North East Los Angeles. Area art galleries open their doors late into the night as part of NELAart's "Gallery Night".
When does it start and how long does it last?
The ride typically (there have been a few exceptions) starts at the intersection of Figueroa Street and York Boulevard in Highland Park, at a flagpole commemorating the area's war veterans. The ride leaves the flagpole at 7:00 p.m., when everyone rides, en masse, at a slow pace, towards the first gallery of the night.
The last gallery is usually visited around 9 or 10 p.m. By that time, bicycle riders that have joined in the middle of the ride have swollen the ranks to about 40 people.
There is usually an after party at the Bike Oven (located at 3706 N. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90065). After parties in the past have been fueled by cheap beer, flaming pinatas, kiddie bike races, and anything else anybody on the ride decided would be a good idea.Ride from Pasadena
