We launched the RideSouthLA map during Sunday’s CicLAvia, at the South Hub in front of the African American Firefighter Museum.

No date has been set yet, but the East Side Riders tell us that they are planning to lead neighborhood tours in the coming months. We will post the Ride Schedule on this site. In the meantime, you can sign up to be notified of upcoming rides through South LA.

Partnership is the core of the effort.  When we had to leave, the staff at TRUST South LA took over distribution from their table:
