For the third year in a row, the City of Long Beach opened the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach roadway to bikes, skaters, walkers, runners, and all things non-motorized. Dubbed part of the City’s “Beach Streets” program this year—with a grander ciclovía to occur in North Long Beach June 6—the Grand Prix-view, the event didn’t permit a single motorized vehicle to enter the track.
Though only an hour-and-a-half event, hundreds showed up to show off something very simple: the power of people using their bodies.
Oh, and to the dude with the Kahuna Big Stick Longboard: you, sir, rock.
Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
If independent local news is important to you, please consider supporting us with a monthly or one-time contribution. Read more.
