ride on bike day at amoeba

On Sunday, May 3 from noon to 4 p.m., Amoeba Hollywood is hosting RIDE ON! Bike Day at Amoeba in our Ivar parking lot, just down a half-block from the store.

It’s the perfect way to kick off National Bike Month in May with a Sunday party at Amoeba!

The event will feature DJs, food and drinks, bicycle-related workshops, a prize wheel and raffle tickets for prizes from Sole Bicycle, Bern Helmets, Converse and Amoeba shopping sprees and more! JUST ADDED: We'll also have Bike Trivia at 3:30 p.m. with local cycling advocate Coolassmike Bowers!

We’ll be celebrating bike culture in partnership with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC), which works to raise awareness about the proposed bike lanes on Hollywood Blvd. LACBC will have on-site bike valet service, and special/cool incentives if you become a member that day. They will also have handy guides to events happening during National Bike Month in and around Los Angeles.

sole bikeThe bike-a-licious prizes we’ll be raffling off include a grand prize of a shiny, new Sole Bicycle, Bern bicycle helmets, cool-ass bike gear, $75 Converse gift certificates, gift cards to local restaurants and Amoeba, concert tickets and more. Can't make it to Bike Day? You can still buy a raffle ticket at Amoeba Hollywood starting April 24; ask at the register.

Look out for treats from Ice Cream Ian (with FREE ice cream!), Hollywood Farmer’s Market, Pure Luck Vegan, Bicycle Coffee and Red Bull.

A portion of all proceeds from all vendors / sales and ALL proceeds from prize wheel and raffle tickets from RIDE ON! will go directly to the LACBC. Founded in 1998, the membership-based nonprofit Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition works to build a better, more bike-able Los Angeles County. Amoeba is proud to support their efforts to make the whole L.A. region a safe and enjoyable place to ride and we’re excited to support their upcoming LA RIVER RIDE on June 6th!
