After the ride, riders are encouraged to participate in Connect The Dots LA, a community event to reimagine Van Nuys Blvd as a green street of the Valley. There will be 3 design workshops about how we could make the street more bicycle-friendly by painting the dots, make pop-up bike lanes, walk, ride and play on the Great Street of Van Nuys Blvd.!
The first workshop is at 1:00 p.m., the second at 3:00 p.m. and the third at 5:00 p.m.
