Since 2009, we have organized group rides around themes relevant to our communities.
With Self-Help Graphics & Art and the UCLA Urban Humanities Institute, MCM hosted several art-based workshops in 2016 to highlight the issues of safety and visibility of low-income cyclists and pedestrians of color. Both events used temporary public installations of life‐sized cutouts of team members and family-inclusive bike rides or walks.
On July 31, we facilitated a demonstration and art-making party at Mariachi Plaza in collaboration with residents and guided by artist Andi Xoch.
On October 29, we held a Day of the Dead/ Día de los muertos walking tour of the ofrendas at Grand Park.
Since 2015, PMJ team members Erick Huerta and Maryann Aguirre have led an annual ride to celebrate the Chicanx pride expressed through public murals in Boyle Heights. 2017's ride was sponsored by Metro.
