Smart cycling tips and techniques and ride one day workshop at Descanso Gardens

Bicycling should be a cruising not a contact sport - and that can be a challenge in Los Angeles.

A member of the Los Angele County Bicycle Coalition and with more than 20 years experience in cycling and a car-free lifestyle in L.A., Ron Durgin will lead a discussion on Sunday, June 14 covering cycling theory, rights and responsibilities followed by basic maintenance and outfitting.

Afterward, the group will head out on a guided ride, so bring bike, helmet and water. Children 6 to 15 are welcomed but must attend with an adult.

Taking place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sycamore Science Center, the one-day workshop is $20.00, $18.00/members. Children are free. For reservations and more information, call (818) 949-7980.

Established as a public garden in 1954, Descanso Gardens is at 1418 Descanso Drive, La Cañada Flintridge, near the interchange of the 2 and 210 freeways. The Gardens are open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily except Christmas Day. Parking is free. Admission fees are $8 for adults; $6 for seniors and students; $3 for children 5 to 12, and free for members and children 5 and younger. Fees for classes and programs include Gardens admission.
