Where will you walk/bike this weekend?
No plans for Carmageddon 2 weekend? Not sure with whom or where to bike? Feel as though you’ll be stuck indoors with nothing to do?
Well, fear no longer; your Bike Program interns are here to put some excitement into your weekend. If you’re feeling like getting some exercise and being social, check out our previous blog posts regarding organized bike rides happening this weekend. With dozens of rides happening all over the city all weekend long, there is bound to be one nearby in which you can participate.
If you want a little more variety then just a bike ride, LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky came out with a list of 53 Ways to survive without the 405, one activity for each of the 53 hours LA’s most used freeway will be closed. Granted, the list came out during last year’s episode (can you even see “Shrek: the Musical” in theaters anymore?), but if you can manage to complete all of the up-to-date activities on the list, then time well spent!
With nearly 300 businesses citywide offering discounts for the entire weekend, you can’t say there was nothing to do during Carmageddon 2!
If you’re more in the mood to get out and about and explore your neighborhood, check out Metro’s Eat, Shop, and Play Locally Weekend Discount Program to see nearly 300 participating businesses and organizations offering deals, encouraging Angelenos to stay close to home during the Carpocolypse. You can also view their correlated interactive map.
Ranker has also fashioned together a Best of Camageddon Deals page that’s worth a view.
If you plan on taking advantage of any of the aforementioned ideas or discounts, be sure to map out your route and get there via bike! If that’s not an option, why not utilize the public transit system?
How are you planning on spending the weekend? Joining in on an organized bike ride? Riding somewhere new or exciting on your own? Taking advantage of any certain deal? Let us know by leaving your comments below. See you all on the other side (the other side being Monday)!
