The LA Explorers Club is a group of cyclists who enjoy seeing the sights of Los Angeles from a bike seat. Each ride carries a special theme and lasts about 3-4 hours in total and we ride as a group, obeying all traffic laws. Riders must be 21 years +.|
The LA Noir theme ride is a special October treat. It's no secret that LA has a history of police and political corruption and we will take you back in time when LA population was booming and organized crime syndicates had their eye on LA. We will follow the story of some large LA underworld players and the stand up team that brought them down. Feel free to wear your best 'Goodfellas' attire. Plus! We are meeting and ending at two amazing and historic places in Downtown LA- Philippe's and Clifton's. That is worth it alone!
Come early (12:30pm) to registration to meet, mingle, eat and sip beers. Ride departs promptly at 2pm.
