    Just Ride LA in Los Angeles, CA

    Roadside Bike Repair Workshop

    thumb_IMG_8137_1024.jpg
    LACBC and Just Ride LA don’t want you to worry about getting stranded with your bike due to a flat tire or mechanical problem. These things don't have to keep you from enjoying a ride to work, visiting friends and family, going shopping, or just riding for fun.
    You don’t need to be a master mechanic to fix a number of problems that could come up during an everyday bike ride. Join us for this free workshop and we'll show you some basic repairs and adjustments that you can do by the side of the road.

    We'll cover some of the most common roadside repairs, including:

    • Fixing a flat tire
    • What kinds of flats are there and which ones can you fix?
    • Shifter adjustment
    • Brake adjustment

    Bring your bike if you have specific questions!

    Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, CA

    AARP in Los Angeles Presents LACBC Sunday Funday - Exposition Line

    NovSF17_AARP.jpg

    Join #TeamLACBC for our November Sunday Funday from as we learn about history along the Expo Line from the Natural History Museum to Cheviot Hills from local expert Jonathan Weiss and ride leader Wayne "Ridetime" Howard. There will be a number of local representatives, speakers and our chapter Bike Culver City joining this exploration.

    Author and honorary Culver City historian Julie Lugo Cerra will be at the first stop – Co+opportunity Culver City, 8770 Washington Boulevard, at the historic corner of Washington and National boulevards. Julie is a published historian and descendent of Los Angeles’ first European settlers. She is featured in this 2017 Culver City Historical Society video celebrating that city’s 100th anniversary.

    In the late-1700s or early-1800s, today’s Washington Boulevard – then known as Paseo de los Carretas (ox cart road) – linked the Los Angeles pueblo to the public grazing grounds, Corral Viejo del Rincón (the old cattle corner). By 1880, the Half Way House (about half way on the road from the Los Angeles to Santa Monica) was near what would become the intersection with National Boulevard, which would be laid out in 1889 to connect to the Westside communities, especially (via Military Avenue) the Pacific Branch of the National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers (opened for Civil War Union veterans in 1888, it is today’s West LA VA).

    The July 4th Los Angeles to Santa Monica Bicycle Race (1891-1902) always passed the corner. Sebastian’s Cotton Club opened in 1926 on the northeast corner; it was one of, if not the first, to feature bands of exclusively African American musicians, including Culver City resident Louis Armstrong. The southwest corner held Hal Roach Studios (1919-1963), “Laugh Factory to the World” and home to Harold Lloyd, Laurel and Hardy, and the Little Rascals.

    This area has a rich transportation history which spans over one hundred years which Jonathan has chronicled on CheviotHillsHistory.org.

    The ride has varying lengths depending on whether you choose to return via Expo Rail. 

    Ride Mileage: 11 miles / 13 miles / 20 miles
    (you may return to the Natural History Museum via the Expo Line on the 11 or 13 mile routes)

    Parking: $12 at Exposition Park, free street parking a few blocks away

    Meet at 9:30 a.m. Roll at 10:00 a.m.
    Sunday Funday Rides are free and open to LACBC members plus one guest.
