Summer Solstice 2019 Architectural Bike Ride

June 22, 2019 @ 9:45 am - 12:30 pm

2019 Summer Solstice Bike Ride

Please join us for our 6th annual bike ride celebrating the longest day of the year!

AIA members earn 2.0 LUs (pending)

Please REGISTER in advance for this free program. 

This year we will ride through parts of Downtown, the East Village and Alamitos Beach. In the recent years, downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods have seen an exciting emergence of vibrant buildings, restaurants and retail. Our urban tour will include an exploration of projects that range from new residential buildings to historic renovations to iconic artwork. We will be able to personally tour a few main projects, while briefly stopping at other projects for meaningful discussions.

We will meet on the Promenade to start off our ride. This location is conveniently located near a parking garage for those who need to drive and to bike share racks for those who need to rent bikes. We will conclude our tour at the Promenade at a local restaurant with appetizers hosted by AIA LBSB.

Learning objectives for AIA LUs (pending):

  1. Participants will visit both historic and contemporary buildings that have been renovated and be able to understand the value of adaptive reuse.
  2. Participants will see and hear about the history, past and present, all of which shape the urban fabric of Downtown Long Beach and surrounding neighborhoods.
  3. Participants will learn about local art/cultural initiatives important to the City such as POW WOW and the recent implementation of the bike share program as well as experience Long Beach’s expanding bike lanes.
  4. Participants will learn about recent development efforts in housing, civic, and retail/office sectors in downtown Long Beach.

Please REGISTER in advance for this free program.
