This weekend the Santa Monica Museum Of Art will once again be hosting what has become one of my favorite Santa Monica events, the Tour da Arts. Combining the art world and bike world is something the museum has become quite adept at. The event starts at the museum in the Bergamot Station Arts Center and tours around the city hitting live performance events at different sites. It's the kind of experience that can really only happen on bikes, moving hundreds of people and hopping around quickly and easily from site to site with a small parking footprint.
For a taste of what it's like check out this video from last year's event:
