LBC Bike-friendly evening—Friday, June 4

Join us for a fun ride and bike-friendly evening. For this month’s easy-paced group ride, Long Beach Cyclists will cycle from Retro Row to Bixby Knolls, enjoying two bike-friendly venues—one on each side of town.

Early Friday evening the 4th we will meet up at Portfolio Coffeehouse (Fourth Street at Junipero), aiming to depart for Bixby Knolls on our bicycles at 6:30 pm. You are encouraged to arrive early, of course, so that first you can hang out at Portfolio. We know bike-friendly Portfolio as one of Retro Row’s anchors—an exceedingly popular place for mingling, coffee, reading, lap topping, and catching local artists, musicians and poets.

At 6:30 pm, we will cycle from Portfolio west and north to a new, bicycle-friendly restaurant in Bixby Knolls called The Factory (Atlantic near Carson). The Factory bills itself as a gastrobar. This means great beer, great food, a deli, and lots of interesting things going on… even cooking classes. Friday evening, there will be special bike parking accommodations.

There will be great music at the Factory—on the 4th Kristi Jo will be performing live—and much to explore nearby as part of the Bixby Knolls ‘First Fridays’ art walk scene. Artists, music, wandering and more. 

Those of us who live towards to the south and like being tucked comfy in bed early will leave for home at about 9:30 pm. Evening riding means, naturally, that you will want to have a light on your bicycle. After all, it’s thrilling to cycle in a group of bikes that are lit up. See you Friday!
