Join APA and the American Society of Landscape Architects for a tour of the Los Angeles River by bicycle that explores the river as a means of transforming how we move and live. Starting at the Los Angeles Zoo, we'll travel south along the river bike path to visit an artist's studio, an architecture and design firm, and infrastructure improvements including bridges, green streets and parks. Along the way, river experts and stakeholders will speak on the most pressing issues for the river and adjacent communities. We'll conclude with a panel and dinner at Golden Road Brewing.

Bring your own bicycle or rent one from spokes-n-stuff.com in Griffith Park.
