Silverlake LGBT History Ride - Cya On The Road

Los Angeles has a long history when it comes to gay rights and activism. We put together a quick ride visiting some historical sights in the Silverlake/Echo Park area. These sights are documented in Curbed Los Angeles’ piece, “Mapping Los Angeles’ groundbreaking role in LGBT history.” This ride by no means captures the breadth of history or expanse of geography that LA has in terms of LGBTQ+ history and culture. We offer two distance options for this ride: 7.7 miles starting at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument and ending at Vermont/Santa Monica B Line Station or 10.8 miles starting and ending at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. This ride is short but hilly at some points. The majority of the route goes along Sunset’s unprotected bike lane, which grassroots group Sunset 4 All is hoping to make a safer place to travel on.
