Pedal. Pulse. Pride. LA
Join Multicultural Communities for Mobility (MCM) on June 2, 2018
for Pedal.Pulse.Pride in Los Angeles, a bi-coastal unity bike ride,
presented by Metro Bicycle Education Safety Training (BEST)
Program. This event is part of a multi-city ride that will celebrate
Pride Month and commemorate those we lost at Pulse Orlando on
June 12, 2016 and our local loved ones. Join us to uplift the
milestones, stories, landmarks, and resources that are creating a
more inclusive Los Angeles. The ride will start at Catch One (a short
ride from Wilshire/Western and Expo/Crenshaw Metro Stations) and
will stop along historical landmarks in Central LA, such as the ONE
Archives at the USC Library.
Our ride will be led by members of Queer Trans Intersex Black
Indigenous People of Color (QTIBIPOC) communities. We encourage
families, friends, supporters, allies, and loved ones to ride with us in
solidarity to show support, share resources, and have fun! The first
fifty participants to arrive will receive limited edition
Pedal.Pulse.Pride bandanas. We will also have helmets, snacks other
goodies up for grabs for the early arrivals!
