This past Wednesday, May 29, marked the second collaborative neighborhood gathering of cyclists and walkers in the Arts District. Resident Scot Ezzell and the now-decade-old Arts District Neighborhood Watch Walk group plus Carrie Cheung of DTLA Rendezvous joined R.A.D.D. Bike Club members led by Melissa Richardson Banks of Downtown Muse, increasing the number last night to over 20 participants combined. Highlights of the walk included a impromptu talk by one of the designers of SCI-Arc’s Earthwave now on view in the triangle lot of Bloom Square; a sunset ride over the 6th Street Bridge; tasting mulberries from The Produce Project at Handsome Coffee; a curator talk by Ken Marchionno of TRACTIONARTS at his new video window gallery located at Traction Ave. and Avery St.; and an excellent social afterwards at Eat.Drink.Americano (923 E. 3rd St). Walkers meet weekly on Wednesdays near the former Bloom’s General Store in front of The Pie Hole (714 Traction Ave.), departing at 6:30 p.m. and returning around 8:00 p.m. Now through September, cyclists meet on Wednesdays at Eat.Drink.Americano and depart at 7:00 p.m., returning around 8:30 p.m. The post-event social starts around 8:30 p.m. and is open to all Arts District and Downtown residents. It currently takes place at Eat.Drink.Americano, but is subject to change – confirm weekly.
Next RADD Bike & Walk Social is Wed 6/5!
