We invite you to join us and LA County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) for a two-wheeled tour of the Cityâ€™s new green lanes as part of SaMo Pride Month, sponsored by Metro Bicycle Education Safety Training (BEST) Program. In June, Santa Monica is celebrating their 1st SaMo Pride Month and commitment to an inclusive and diverse community. This ride will sample some of the 19 miles of new green lanes.
The ride will meet in front of Santa Monica City Hall, located just two blocks away from the Downtown Santa Monica Metro Station. This bike tour is at a social pace with no riders left behind. Children are welcome but should be capable of riding in the street or in a trailer, child bike seat or tagalong. Itâ€™s a one-way exploration of the City of Santa Monicaâ€™s various types of bike infrastructure and introductions to a few exciting upcoming projects. The tour ends at Dagwoods Pizza â€“ home of the Edible Glitter Rainbow Pizza! Bring smiles, a thirst for adventure, and cash if you would like to enjoy lunch after the ride. A marshal will escort those who will not stay for lunch on an easy ride back to the start of the ride or Expo Line Station
This year, they’llÂ begin and endÂ at Laemmleâ€™s completely revampedÂ Monica Film CenterÂ on 2nd StreetÂ in Santa Monica, including aÂ post-ride bashÂ upstairs inÂ the theaterâ€™s swanky new mezzanine lounge.Â Plus, those who complete all 125+ miles will receive a free pair of officialÂ Tour de LaemmleÂ cycling socks!
If you joined themÂ last year, the route will be familiar. However, theyâ€™ve made several enhancements including more time on bike pathsÂ and lanes. Stay tuned for the official route sheet, but in the meantime, check out theÂ highlights and points of interest. Â Thereâ€™s loadsÂ to see along the way, including a cornucopia of good eats!
Laemmleâ€™s involvement with cycling events such asÂ CicLAviaÂ andÂ Climate RideÂ stems not just from our love of the sport, but as a way to encourage alternative transportation and inspire creative thinking about our traffic and environmental challenges.Â In 2014, GregÂ stepped up to the plate by creating their ownÂ event, the TOUR DE LAEMMLE, a 125-mile bicycle tour of all theirÂ theaters led by theirÂ ownÂ GREG LAEMMLE.
As an avid cyclist and sustainabilityÂ advocate, Greg had always dreamed of traveling toÂ each of hisÂ venues by bike in a singleÂ day. Â After researching the route, he soonÂ recognized the cultural and historical import of many of the roads, pathways, and landmarks he discoveredÂ along the way. Â Realizing the potential value extended far beyond his original vision, he opened up the ride andÂ invited the communityÂ to joinÂ him â€œonÂ a 2-wheeled tour of L.A.â€™s richly diverse neighborhoods.â€
As in past years, this 3rdÂ edition of the tourÂ is FREE to all participants. Riders may join Greg for the entire route, which starts at the MONICA FILM CENTERÂ in Santa MonicaÂ at 7am, or for one or more of the ensuing legs. The full circuit (which returns to Santa MonicaÂ in the early evening) will cover 125+ miles throughout the L.A. region.
Departing at 7:00am from theÂ Monica Film Center., weâ€™ll visit the following venues in succession:
Monica Film Center (Santa Monica)
Music Hall (Beverly Hills)
Ahrya Fine Arts (Beverly Hills)
Playhouse 7 (Pasadena)
Glendale 5 (under construction)
NoHo 7 (North Hollywood)
Town Center (Encino)
Back to the Monica Film CenterÂ around 6Â PM (phew!)
