Ride through Old Torrance

You know the deal: we'll meet at the rear parking lot of Wilson Park in Torrance at 10 and ride at 10:15. We really need to leave for our ride on time this Sunday. We will take a short ride through Torrance neighborhoods to historic Old Town Torrance a little known corner of the city that is easily explorable on a bike. We can ride in this area and check out its many little shops, masonry buildings from the founding of the city, and lovely old residential neighborhoods in the surrounding area. We will even make a quick stop at the drive-in Foster's Freeze for some ice cream! This is a great ride to bring your family on, there is little traffic at this hour and we cross few main streets.

We will meet in the lot at the BACK of the park next to the basketball courts.

If you are coming from Crenshaw Bl, turn onto Jefferson Street and head ALL THE WAY BACK past the gym, skate park, hockey rink, and tennis courts, the lane will turn to the right and there will be one last little lot with eucalyptus trees alongside some basketball courts. If you come from Sepulveda you can turn onto to Arlington Avenue heading north and then left on Washington Avenue, the parking lot will be at the end of Washington.

RSVP note: If you are unsure if you can attend this ride please do not RSVP "YES" and comment "maybe", instead wait until you have a better idea if you can attend or not to RSVP. We try to leave for our rides on time and I cannot keep a large group waiting for 1 or 2 people.

    I'm thinking of coming but have a car club meeting out in Upland at 1p. This will be my first meetup & I'd hate to bail early.
