Last Friday, LACBC hosted our first St. Patrick's Day Lunch Ride to celebrate our Green on the Ground Week, where we've been telling the stories of green bike lanes across the county.

Our ride started at Pershing Square, wound through Downtown L.A. via the green bike lane on Spring St., and ended at Grand Hope Park for lunch.

Some of the participants decided to leave their own bikes at home as Metro provided free coupons to test out their Bike Share program.

Here are some photos of the ride taken by our super volunteer Dale Zapata:

The Pershing Square Metro Bike Station was easily accessible and located at the Olive & 5th corner of Pershing Square.

We had a short climb up Olive Street past the Subway Terminal Building before turning onto 4th Street.

Who doesn't have fun on a bike ride?

Biking was definitely faster than taking the bus.
