Cause for Creativity: Tour da Arts, vol. 2, at the Santa Monica Museum of Art on Sunday, August 22

Sunday the 22nd the Santa Monica Musuem of Art and CICLE are putting on what sounds like an awesome combination of cycling and cultural events around town. The Bikerowave will also be there at the start helping people with their bikes and topping off air pressure. I missed it due to a schedule conflict the first time around, but I don't want to miss it this time.Word has it the registration for the free event is filling up fast, and the bike rentals that were being offered are already tapped out. If you want to be apart, register ASAP. Check the link for registration, full details, and times for the different workshops and events.

Cause for Creativity: Tour da Arts, vol. 2Sunday, August 22

Reduce your dependency on oil and pedal on over to SMMoA for our second annual Cause for Creativity: Tour da Arts event offering a spoke card art workshop, cultural bike tour, and an exhibition closing party. 

Depart from SMMoA and make a first stop at The Broad Stage to hear live music with cellist and cycling enthusiast Ben Sollee. The next stop at Virginia Avenue Park will feature Katie the Curst, scenes from an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, presented by The Actors’ Gang and directed by Lisa Wolpe. Return to SMMoA for an exhibition closing party and bike-themed festivities.

Certified cyclists from C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange) lead the bike tour, which proceeds at a moderate and social pace and obeys all traffic laws.

What to Bring: A bicycle in good running order. All participants under 18 must wear a helmet and be escorted by a parent or guardian. Children under age 9 should be on a tag-along, bike trailer, tandem, or other safe child-carrying device.

Bike Rentals: Reservations Full. FREE bike rental opportunity provided by Perry's Cafe and Rentals!
Cause for Creativity: Tour da Arts, vol. 2 is made possible in part by the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission, HBO, and Nordstrom.

Hi Gary,

Hope to meet you at this event. Have had you on Twitter and FB for a while.

By the way, your blog header is like mine. Mine is an old pic I took while in Amsterdam. Funny how they're very alike though.

Hi Tamara,

Glad you read the blog. I'll probably wear something iconic like my I Bike LA t-shirt so I can be more easily spotted at the event. Sounds like it will fun day, looking forward to it.

I do think blog headers of those who love bikes do tend to look very similar, as there are only so many ways you can fit an image of a bike in a horizontal frame.
