Next Beach Streets Event to Take Over North Long Beach on Oct. 28

Well, it ain’t quite the Norfside but I guess a repeat is better than nothing: Beach Streets will return to the same route it was inaugurated with in Bixby Knolls come October 18 from 10AM to 4PM. (Perfect for Halloween.)

The route is solely along Atlantic from Houghton Park at Harding in the north to Wardlow toward the south.

After DTLB, Cambodia Town, and East Long Beach saw over 70,000 bicyclists, walkers, skaters, and explorers invade the streets for the City of Long Beach’s latest ciclovías, it seems like they Beach Streets can’t stop and won’t stop.

Ride on, Long Beach, ride on.
