Griffith Park Festival of Rights!


Monday, December 8, 2008 @ 6:30 pm

It's the opening of the "Yay for Motorists! Nay for Cyclists!" Griffith Park Light Festival.

The DWP, in an effort to help the City of LA become "America's Greenest City," has banned cyclists from the auto-centric, environmental nightmare known as the Griffith Park Light Festival.

This year approximately half million people will arrive at Griffith Park, the largest urban wilderness park in the country, while they will sit in idling automobiles for 90 minutes while they wait for their opportunity to drive through the one-mile long Festival of Lights.

Join us as we once again adorn ourselves in the appropriate holiday decorations and ride through the gridlock, sharing holiday goodwill and cheer with all those trapped in their fossil fuel burning, infernal combustion machines of horror.

Bring a thermos, a flask, a friend or two and some bail money. After all, cyclists are forbidden from riding in the Griffith Park Light Festival! Holidays are for motorists!

We meet at the Mulholland Fountain at the SW corner of Los Feliz Boulevard and Crystal Springs/Riverside Drive at 6:30 pm. We ride @ 7:00 pm.

Having never been arrested, how much bail money would you recommend, precisely?
