The Miracle Mile is one of Los Angeles's most appealing neighborhoods, with high population density, significant architecture, dozens of fine and casual restaurants, several large parks, and a high concentration of art galleries and museums, including the world-renowned Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It is well-served by transit as well.
However, this is Los Angeles, and so the art galleries participating in the art walk are rather too sprawled out actually to walk to. With the free shuttle not available this year, Bicycle Fixation offered to host an art ride so that visitors could view a variety of galleries without having to drive and park around the district.
Meet us in front of the famous Lamp Sculpture at LACMA (Wilshire & Ogden) at 3:00PM. We will lead you to several gallery clusters or especially significant single galleries, where we will guard your bicycles while you peruse the art within.
We live in the neighborhood and will choose quiet side streets whenever possible for the rides.
Please make sure your tires have sufficient air pressure in them, and wear a helmet if you are under eighteen, as that is required by California law.
We have written directions for riding your bicycle to the Art Walk as well; see them here.
For more information about the Art Walk itself, see the Miracle Mile Art Walk website.
This is a social ride on open public streets; by participating you agree to free Bicycle Fixation, the Miracle Mile Art Walk, and the Mid City West Community Council from any liability for accidents or injuries. You will be expected to obey all traffic laws relevant to bicycles in the state of California and the City of Los Angeles.
