Avoid Carmageddon: Ride your Bike with LACBC and Eat Real
Those of you with your ears to the ground and your feet on your pedals have no doubt heard and smirked at the notion of Carmegeddon. Well, it’s REALLY COMING! Yes, the closure of a few silly miles of the little ‘ole 405 Freeway is (for some) evidently a potential disaster of proportions biblical. Angelinos have been advised by trembling members of the press, elected officials, et al, to “Stay home or get out of town!” The less trembling have suggested to at least steer clear of the Westside.
However, we at LACBC cry phooey, as we know of something FUN FUN FUN that’s happening outdoors and on the Westside and we know you, you reading this blog are fearless, free, and a seeker of adventure…a BICYCLIST. That is why you will wish to join us on a FREE guided ride with LACBC to the Eat Real Festival at the Historic Helms Bakery District in Culver City. We’ll meet at 10:30 AM Saturday the 16th as well as Sunday the 17th (and ride promptly at 11AM) at the corner of Wilshire and Western, which is also the end of the Purple line. The demi-gods at Metro have made your Metro Purple, Red, and Orange Line rides, as well as select bus rides, free on Carmegeddon weekend.
Upon arrival at the festival, avenging angels (aka bike valets) from the Culver City Bicycle Coalition will park your bike and watch it while you indulge and imbibe wantonly! (Angels wanted…contact Martin Lopez-Iu at email@example.com. Angels receive free food, drink and t-shirts from Eat Real). There will be a raffle and other angels from Bikerowave will be on hand to do light repairs.
The Eat Real festival is a celebration of all things tasty, fresh and handmade with a focus on street food, local wines, handcrafted beers and traditional craft food – all featuring sustainable, local ingredients. Plus, no dish or drink costs more than $5.
EAT IT: You’ll find tacos inspired by flavors from around the world, curry, BBQ, hot dogs, ice cream, noodles, and a whole lot more of LA’s awesome curbside eats.
MAKE IT: Also at the festival, learn to make your own cheese and other awesome demos.
GROW IT: Yes you can become an urban-agrarian! Explore a DIY lifestyle with demos and activities filled with “ooohs, aaahs and ah-HA’s!”
Or just grab a taco and a beer and enjoy our full schedule of entertainment with bands, butchery contests, lit fest, and other tasty tidbits. Learn more about the Eat Real Festival at www.eatrealfest.com. July 16th & 17th. 10:30 AM to 9 PM. Helms Bakery District.
