The South Bay Bike to Work Challenge started out rainy – an unexpected challenge for southern California riders. But by the end of the week, we were back to prime riding weather. The riders we talked to had a great time – some even riding through the Ballona Wetlands to see the mustard flowers in bloom! We hope to see even more riders next year!
You can read all about the ride at Manhattan Beach patch.com, and read our co-chairs’ opinion piece in the Daily Breeze.
