Bicycling Against 710 Freeway Expansion

Bike the L.A. River, oppose freeway expansion

** Updated 25 March 2011: POSTPONED – due to rain predicted! **

The Coalition for Environmental Health and Justice (CEHAJ) is hosting a bikeathon event on the Lower Los Angeles River on Saturday March 26th 2011. The event’s slogan is “Communities Over Freeways.” The goal is to raise awareness and funding – in opposition to the widening of the 710 Freeway. It’s a fairly short bike ride (about 8 miles) and all on bike path, so almost anyone can do it! Suggested donation is $5.

There are two starting points (both register 9:30am, depart: 10am) : 

  1. Los Angeles starting point: the Atlantic Boulevard entry point of the South County Los Angeles River Bike Trail – at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and District Boulevard (in the city of Vernon, near Maywood.)
  2. Long Beach starting point: Ocean Boulevard entrance to the LARIO L.A. River Bike Trail – next to the Golden Shore Wetlands, on Golden Shore Drive, just south of where the 710 Freeway crosses under Ocean Boulevard.

Both rides meet up in the middle at Coolidge Park in North Long Beach, just south of Artestia Boulevard, on the west side of the river. Full details on the flier here: front / back.

Organizers are looking for a few volunteers to assist with basic bike repair duties – if you can help out, email mark [at]
