All proceeds from this ride will be devoted to promoting the Arroyo Seco Bikeway.
The Arroyo Seco has been called the most celebrated canyon in Southern California. This spectacular corridor with a gentle river flowing through it links downtown Los Angeles with Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley.
The Arroyo Seco is ideally suited to feature a bicycle path as viable transporation alternative. It's a gentle downhill ride of about ten miles from Pasadena to the downtown Los Angeles filled with scenic hightlights and cultural landmarks. The path would parallel the Gold Line train with six nearby stations so that bike riders take the train one way and ride the other in the spectacular natural setting of the Arroyo Seco.
It's a fun, refreshing and healthy alternative to freeway congestion.
