is happening again this Sunday! In the past we've met to play foursquare, get coffee/lunch/wevs, and ride the course together. This time let's meet for breakfast at 9am before the course opens, then ride our bikes down to MacArthur Park for the festivities!
Previous CicLAvias we've camped out along the course playing foursquare, but I think we should concentrate on meeting at a place for refreshments of some sort in case the keepers of the foursquare ball don't feel like toting it around the bike course this time. Plus, I like riding my bike at the bike-riding event.
Speaking of which, I'll be riding the course a lot, just for fun. Back and forth and back and forth and up and down all of the various legs of the route
. Usually I'd start at Melrose/Heliotrope, but it looks like they lopped off that leg this year in favor of going south on Figuroa and north up into Chinatown. Given that, it looks like a good meeting place might be near McArthur Park, or maybe a more central location at 7th & Spring. There's also going to a performance stage and some music acts playing at Grand Park I believe—that might be a good place to gather as well.
In any case let's start at 9am at Square One
, on Fountain just south of the big blue $cientology center, for some excellent breakfast. We should be done and headed towards downtown and the course by the time it opens, around 10am. Or if you want we can meet up somewhere along the course while it's open, or if anyone is still up for it by 3pm, we can get a beer or something.
Come on! Let's ride bikes!
