We’re excited to welcome one of our newest businesses to Leimert Park, Ride On!, a newly formed bicycle co-op located in Leimert Park Village. Proprieter Ade Neff, a passionate alternative-to-cars enthusiast, explained his vision of creating a bicycle co-op,whereby a member-run collective can repair bicycles and conduct clinics for the local community. In addition to repair services, Ride On! will also conduct workshops on bike safety and advocate for bicycle infrastructure equity in Southwest Los Angeles.
Located just steps from the Garden Tour Hub, Ride On! plans to offer discounted bike rentals (bring your own helmet) to ticketed garden tour attendees on the day of the garden tour, Saturday, May 6, 2017. With a 1.2 square mile flat-as-a-pancake terrain, bike racks provided by the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition, and bike valets on hand at each tour home to safeguard bikes, visiting the gardens via bicycle could not be easier.
In 2016, Ade was featured in this video explaining his vision.
