Bike Mar Vista News and Rides!
LAUSD has officially started but there still plenty of days left to summer!
We’ve expanded our mission of promoting safe cycling to include general exercise, adventure and general movement. Our guest in the community outreach booth this Sunday is our Light On Lotus local yoga studio. They’re located right on Grand View Blvd, next door to Little Fatty’s! It’s great studio that I hope to visit on a more regular basis. I did enjoy my Friday evening class a couple of months ago. The live band that started playing at Time Warp Records was sort of a bonus!
Wednesday, August 16th at 6pm is the next LACBC Bike Ambassador’s mtg. at Coffee Tomo.
