March W/T/F Bike Brunch

Sunday, March 23rd @ 10:30am to Gjelina Take Away

Meet: 10am / Ride: 10:30am

Planned by the awesome Brianna, from The Sister Sledge blog:

In the spirit of Crash Marathon we will be riding from the East Side to the West Side for brunch. This is not for the faint of heart, but you will work up an appetite. The ride is approximately 15 miles one way.

We’ll be meeting the The Bicycle Kitchen/La Bicicocina in East Hollywood. They run a really great night on Mondays for Women/Trans/Femme only, creating a safe space for us to learn how to fix our bikes and swap knowledge. Check it out some Monday if you can.

Our route will take us through Hollywood along Fountain, through West Hollywood, the residential part of Beverly Hills and then down along the Ballona Creek Bike Path. We plan to stop by Menotti’s for a cup o’ joe, since it is a fellow cyclist’s new shop, on our way to Gjelina.

If anyone would like to volunteer to meet us at Gjelina with a vehicle that has a bike rack for those who would like to do half of the ride please send an email to the address below. You can also catch the Gold Line from Culver City, if you would prefer to digest brunch on a mode of transportation other than your bicycle.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO RSVP TO: brakingthelimits@gmail.com so we can make a reservation in advance!


The First Brunch Was a Smash!

This morning we just had our first bike brunch in Los Angeles and it went smashingly! We shared stories, food, and laughs at Home in Silver Lake amongst 15 amazing women & femme with whom we also share the roads. We had commuters, a mom (with baby in tow!), bicycle advocates, group ride leaders, bike racers and bike co-op volunteers and it was wonderful to mingle those worlds while finding out we all shared similar fears, gripes, favorites routes and all have a love for biking that brings us happiness in our lives. It’s what made us want to get together and meet. We inspired each other and listened to each other and can’t wait to meet more women & femme at brunches to come. We discussed creating a Facebook Group for Women Bike Brunch LA so find us there soon to join the conversation at brunch.

A happy group if I ever saw one
