As part of the GOOD fundraiser for CicLAvia, Creek Freak author/artist, CicLAvia-ista yours truly Joe Linton will be leading a very fun very family-friendly bike ride and tour of the Los Angeles River. The ride departs at 2:30pm on Saturday March 5th 2011 - from Atwater Crossing – 3229 Casitas Avenue, Atwater Village 90039. We’ll return to the party by 4pm.
The ride is very short – about 1/3 of a mile each way, on very very quiet residential streets - and will visit one of the very nicest parts of the Los Angeles River – lots of ducks, other birds, tall trees, fish, and lush and pleasant place in (nearly) every respect. I’ll talk a little about the history of the river and plans for its future. « Read the rest of this entry »

I just posted lots of great Ballona events and forgot to announce an event that I’m a part of!
Electric Lodge is hosting a weekend eco-film series, Green Screen. Sunday morning they are urging the public to get off the couch and on a bike to tour parts of the Kenter Creek and Ballona Creek watersheds. I’ll be your traveling talking-head on the tour, promising a stop at the Kuruvungna Springs and Ballona Creek.
The ride is $20, includes brunch and a van-ride back to your cars afterwards. Follow the Green Screen link (above) to register. Come on out! it’s mostly downhill, folks.
