Join over 2,000 other riders, and enjoy a great day of bicycling along the LA River and through Downtown LA to Long Beach. With five rides to choose from, ranging from 2 to 100 miles, there’s an experience for everyone at the LA River Ride.

Train up with our 36-mile Ride or dig into the Metric Century Plus, covering 68 miles.
