Los Angeles Events - Bikes

If you like bikes, March will be your month for fun Los Angeles events. March 1, in fact, offers a tandem of bike-related events. At the Hammer Museum (10899 Wilshire Blvd., L.A.; www.hammer.ucla.edu) you can participate in freewheeling (and free!) fun from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. during “Close Encounters: Build-A-Bike.” Draw inspiration from the Hammer’s exhibition spotlighting the innovative Heatherwick Studio and design your very own model bicycle.

Just a quick bike ride away at the Fowler Museum (308 Charles E. Young Dr. North, L.A.; www.fowler.ucla.edu) will be a free family bike day from 1-4 p.m., in conjunction with the exhibit “Round Trip: Bicycling Asia Minor 1891.” Besides learning about bike safety, kids can create decorations for their helmets and bikes and then display them in a bike procession. If you work up an appetite from all of these bike activities, you can get something sweet at an ice cream social.

Now that you are on a roll, gear up for the next CicLAvia, which will take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. March 22. The first CicLAvia of 2015 is also their first to take place in the San Fernando Valley. The car-free route will principally include Lankershim and Ventura boulevards, with stops at the NoHo Arts District, Universal City, the Studio City Farmers Market and the historic Campo de Cahuenga.
