Join the 626 Golden Streets: ArroyoFest Exploratory Ride where you’ll cruise through the beautiful Arroyo area, soak up the sun.
The second and final ArroyoFest Exploratory Ride will traverse the Arroyo Seco Bikeway and include stops at the historical and cultural monuments along the event route, including the Lummis Home – El Alisal in northeast Los Angeles and a very famous play house in South Pasadena. This family-friendly ride is approximately 10 miles long and will start and finish at the South Pasadena A Line Station (formerly Metro “L” / Gold Line). The ride will conclude with a free raffle, and folks are encouraged to stick around South Pasadena and patronize the many local eateries and shops that Mission Street offers.
E-bikes are welcome.
