Celebrate the 232nd Anniversary of the founding of the City of LA.  Los Pobladores (descendants of the original townspeople) celebrate annually by re-enacting the walk made by the original 44 settlers and 4 soldiers from the San Gabriel Mission to El Pueblo (the City of L.A.'s birthplace) in 1781. This year, join us for an a new 9-mile bike ride component co-led by LACBC that will accompany the trek. We will be walking and riding the trail that the original settlers took to get to El Pueblo.
