About Folk Art Everywhere:

Folk Art Everywhere is designed to inspire exploration of diverse communities and neighborhoods in Los Angeles through art and culture. A project of the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), Folk Art Everywhere has partnered with 25 diverse organizations and businesses to place artwork representing cultures from around the world inside venues throughout LA County. Think of it as a cultural treasure hunt that releases beautiful and curious art objects from private collections and installs them in unexpected public spaces—restaurants, parks, coffee shops, bookstores, and cultural centers—places where people naturally gather.

The People’s Ride Costume night

Time: 9:30pm

Ride: 10:00pm

NEW MEET SPOT: Barnsdall Square Shopping Center/ Rite Aid Parking lot, Hollywood and Vermont. 1601 N Vermont Ave. But meet in front of Jon’s Market at the south end of the parking lot. View map.


The People’s Ride was designed for those who cannot make it to LA Critical Mass or want to continue to ride when LACM is over.

The ride usually ends near the start point, close to a Metro Station or bus lines.

We aim to have fun while reminding the LA car culture that there is another alternative. This is a non-confrontational ride through traffic. Educate rather than aggravate. Tell drivers that they are welcome to join us on a bicycle.

This is an all-inclusive ride. Everyone is welcome. No intolerant haters please. Respect the riders and respect the ride.

We ride at night so bring lights for your bike. Bring a spare tube. Wear a helmet if you are not an experienced rider.

Please pick up your trash before riding off.
Check Twitter for up-to-date details.

Tentative route

Pre-Halloween ride! You don’t have to wear a costume, but if you do it will make the ride so much more F.U.N.

Meet at Wilshire and Western Metro Station 6:30pm

Ride at 7:30pm sharp

LA Critical Mass rides through the city of Los Angeles, exerting our right under California Law to ride bicycles on the street.

This is a easy-paced ride.

Fixed-gear fast riders are encouraged to cork intersections then ride up to the front of the pack and cork again.

Though LAPD has been mostly tolerant of our rides, we don’t want to provoke them. Since this is a night ride, you might want to get a rear red blinking light and a front white blinking light. If they (LAPD) tell us to stop at the red lights, we should stop. Let’s be polite and courteous to drivers. Do not argue or engage in conflict.
