Exploring Arroyo Seco History on Two-Wheels
By EGP Staff Report
About 300 cyclists dressed in their dapper best, took a trip back in time last weekend for a closer look at some of the oldest structures in Northeast Los Angeles.
They were participating in “Tweed, Moxie and Mustaches,” a unique bike ride around the Arroyo Seco to explore some of the area’s historic structures built in the late 19th and mid 20th centuries.
The moderate temperature was perfect for the ride, which covered more than 10 miles.
The tour on two-wheels took participants to Judson Studios, where hand crafted stained and unique forms of architectural glass have been created since the 1800s; the Lummis Home, a 19th century home on the west bank of the Arroyo Seco; and the Audubon Center at Debs Park, an environmental education and conservation center and the fourth largest park in Los Angeles.
The event was hosted by L.A. City Councilmember Jose Huizar, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and Cyclists Inciting Change Through Live Exchange (C.I.C.L.E.).Print This Post
