The Path, Orange County Bike Shop Celebrates 15th Anniversary

The Path has grown from a one-man repair shop into one of Orange County’s largest and most well-known bike shops, with two locations and more than 30 employees. The Tustin store is still located in the same building, but over the years. Although The Path is known as a mountain shop, it sells road bikes, along with all the gear to go with them. This month, The Path also celebrates the one-year anniversary of its second store in Orange County’s Live Oak Canyon, which opened in October 2012. A party will be held on Thursday, Oct. 24, with food, beverages and entertainment from 6 to 10 p.m. Visit The Path Bike Shop website

Please join the big cleanup in the Santa Ana River by LeBard Park just south of Adams by Brookhurst street in Huntington Beach  at 9 AM until 12 noon. This is part of Coastal Cleanup Day, typically the largest cleanup statewide of the year. We hope to have 200 people help out. 1st 100 get an annual Inner Coastal Cleanup shirt. This cleanup will help us quantify the need for better management practices which continue to solve our problem of relocating the counties litter to the beach. Please spread the word even if you can’t make it but we hope that you can.

Sunday October 7, 2012 CicLAvia

If you have wanted to bicycle the streets of Downtown Los Angeles without cars …. this is your opportunity!!!

This is a very fun event. CicLAvia consists of the temporary closing and opening of Los Angeles streets to all Angelenos on bicycles and foot. Free to the public, it interconnects diverse portions of the city, creating a web of temporary public space, free of car traffic. Between 8am to 3pm bicyclist can bicycle car-free throughout Downtown LA.

They had the first LA CicLAvia earlier this year in April. It was a great success with thousands of bicyclist. Take your time and talk with other bicyclists from all around Southern California and stop at one of the many cafes for lunch.

For the October 7th CicLAvia, work is underway to expand the route south to Central Avenue, Exposition Park and more of South LA, further east into Boyle Heights and East L.A., Southeast LA, and north to Chinatown to connect with additional neighborhoods.

Checkout the CicLAvia website:

I suggest taking the LA Metro Rail from Norwalk Transit Station (Imperial & 605). You roll on and roll off your own bike, sitting next to your bike. Lots of room on the train. It’s very easy. Only $5.00 for All Day pass. Lots of free parking at the transit station. This is the Green Line which connects to the Red Line that goes into Downtown LA. You can catch the Red Line in Downtown Long Beach but this is the same Sunday as the Long Beach Marathon (probably no available parking).
