“Go Public” Ice Cream Ride

August “Go PUBLIC” bike ride is here!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!!!

It’s been very HOT recently so we thought what better way to cool off than to go on an ice cream bike ride. We will be stopping at THREE different creameries, each with their own unique spin on everyone’s favorite frozen treat (non-dairy friendly!).

Our first stop will be the Santa Monica staple, Sweet Rose Creamery, located on Pico Blvd. Small batch ice cream made daily with locally sourced ingredients! They also have incredible coffee too. Read more about them here: https://sweetrosecreamery.com/

Our second stop will be the Portland transplant, Salt & Straw Ice Cream! Now open in Venice, located on Abbot Kinney. Salt & Straw features ice cream flavors you never knew were possible and it also showcases a slew of specialty flavors that change every month which are co-created and inspired by local chef’s, restuarants and establishments. Learn more about Salt & Straw here: http://saltandstraw.com/

Our third and final stop will be our fellow neighbors’ down the street, Kippy’s Ice Cream Shop! Kippy’s is unique in that it specializes in organic, non-dairy ice cream; healthy and delicious. Their ice cream is made by hand, daily using fresh raw coconut sweetened with honey. Yum! Check them out here: http://www.kippysicecream.com/

This will be a 5 mile ride round-trip through the streets and neighborhoods of Santa Monica and Venice. Family friendly and fun for all ages (youngsters + toddlers recommended to ride with a parent). The ride will start and end at the PUBLIC Bikes Santa Monica store location.

Laemmle’s involvement with cycling events such as CicLAvia and Climate Ride 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. In 2014, Greg stepped up to the plate by creating their own event, the TOUR DE LAEMMLE, a 125-mile bicycle tour of all their theaters led by their own GREG LAEMMLE.

As an avid cyclist and sustainability advocate, Greg had always dreamed of traveling to each of his venues by bike in a single day.  After researching the route, he soon recognized the cultural and historical import of many of the roads, pathways, and landmarks he discovered along the way.  Realizing the potential value extended far beyond his original vision, he opened up the ride and invited the community to join him “on a 2-wheeled tour of L.A.’s richly diverse neighborhoods.”

As in past years, this 3rd edition of the tour is FREE to all participants. Riders may join Greg for the entire route, which starts at the MONICA FILM CENTER in Santa Monica at 7am, or for one or more of the ensuing legs. The full circuit (which returns to Santa Monica in the early evening) will cover 125+ miles throughout the L.A. region.

Departing at 7:00am from the Monica Film Center., we’ll visit the following venues in succession:

  • Monica Film Center (Santa Monica)
  • Music Hall (Beverly Hills)
  • Ahrya Fine Arts (Beverly Hills)
  • Claremont 5
  • Playhouse 7 (Pasadena)
  • Glendale 5 (under construction)
  • NoHo 7 (North Hollywood)
  • Town Center (Encino)
  • Back to the Monica Film Center around 6 PM (phew!)
