[ARCHIVED] Celebrate Our Heritage Walk and Bike to L.A. on Aug. 27

walk and bike to la

It's almost time again for the annual Celebrate Our Heritage Walk and Bike to L.A. event, which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27.

Each year, community members, officials and local ancestors of the original settlers of Los Angeles, Los Pobladores, walk from the the San Gabriel Mission to Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the historic journey that began what is now the thriving Los Angeles region. With this walk, participants trace the steps of Los Pobladores, who took the same path in 1781.

The walk and the bike ride begin at San Gabriel Mission, head west along Mission Road for nine miles and then end in Los Angeles at El Pueblo’s Plaza Park. The walk and bike ride take about three hours to complete.

Once everyone reaches Plaza Park, there will be a birthday celebration to commemorate the 235th birthday of Los Angeles. The festivities will include special presentations at El Pueblo Historical Monument and the Pico House as well as a preview of the new “Gateway to Nature Center.”

Walkers should meet at 6:00 a.m. and bikers at 7:30 a.m. at the San Gabriel Mission. Participation is free. Registration will be available on the morning of the event at the Mission. Bike participants must be at least 12 years old. Helmets are required.

The event is sponsored by Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, the City of San Gabriel, San Gabriel Mission, El Pueblo de Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles, Los Pobladores 200, LADOT Bike Program, LA County Bicycle Coalition, and Eastside Bicycle Club.

For more information, call the Community Services Department at 626.308.2875.
