Nearly a hundred bicycling advocates and community members turned out for the Eastside Mural Ride. The ten mile ride, with stops at historic murals throughout Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles, didn’t just focus on the street art and history of the neighborhoods; cyclist and pedestrian safety was also discussed, and lights and helmets were distributed. “Everybody really enjoys the ride. They have a really good time. Everybody is safe. Everybody gets to go home at the end of the day. This is a really successful ride and we’re looking to do it again next year.” The story and a photo essay of the day is on Boyle Heights Beat.
