Yeah, looking at their schedule of events, it doesn't even look like they're planning a big ride for that day (which, after all, makes sense, since we're supposed to be riding to work) but rather just have "pit stops" set up around town.
Looks like it is up to us....

We did our own thing last year too.
Rides started at different places and met at the former SiteLA on Sunset, for an "official" ride to work sag stop, then we rolled to City Hall with a big ass scroll with the Bicycle Bill of Rights and hundreds of signatures.
Got lots of free food, bike lights, bike packs, sun screen and other promo goodies.
I really enjoyed the mid week, daylight adventure, and hope we can do it again, me still being sans job and all.

The DOT even made a spoke card for the event.
It is a spoke card archive oddity, the only card made by a government entity.

Hollywood & Western
6am to 8:30 am
We meet, we hang out, we talk to Channel 4
At 8:30 we ride down Western Avenue to Exposition Boulevard and ride the route that the Expo line bike path SHOULD take if the Expo Construction Authority actually cared about cyclists.
This ride is our opportunity to demonstrate what the East-West route could look like if they would support cyclists.
The current plans for the Expo Bike Path call for an almost complete bike path that simply disappears at the tough points.
Completely unacceptable, just like their plan to shirk their responsibilities and have the local authorities work together to make it happen. That's never worked, just look at the Culver Blvd Bike Path with the Billboard in center of the path. (Metro, LADOT & Caltrans working together!)
We ride to the Westside, watch Agent Orange go to work and then we ride back to USC for a free lunch at LANI.
Just like last year but with more attitude!
Thursday at Hollywood & Western! We ride at 8:30 am.
