Los Angeles’ new bicycle plan wouldn’t have come to be if it weren’t for the hard work of local bicycle activists. Those cycling advocates have been planning more and more events and projects in the last few years — to the point that a bike-related event seems to be happening a few times a week! Whether you get to work by bike everyday or are a newbie inspired to get two-wheeling because of the bike plan, here are some fun upcoming events in the L.A. area to get you riding:
