(Ride by invitation)
“The SlutWalk protest marches began on April 3, 2011 in Toronto Canada and have since become an international movement of rallies across the world. They are a protest against the belief that any aspect of a woman’s appearance might explain or excuse rape.The rallies began in response to remarks made by Constable Michael Sanguinetti, a Toronto police officer, who suggested that in order not to be victimized, ‘women should avoid dressing like sluts’. The protest take the form of a march, by mainly young women, where some dress in ordinary clothing, and others dress provocatively; there are also speaker meetings and workshops.”

Ciclavia April 10 2011
“Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States, connecting communities and giving people a break from the stress of car traffic. The health benefits are immense. Ciclovías bring families outside of their homes to enjoy the streets, our largest public space.”

“Ride por Vida” Solidarity ride for LGBT youth of color

This ride was dedicated to our LGBT youth of color who left us too soon. We rode in solidarity through the suicide bridge in Pasadena and paused for a moment of silence leaving candles and saying a few words in their honor.
Sprout the love: Seed bombing ride
(Ride organizers: Elvira and Jocelyn)
“The term “seed grenade” was first used by Liz Christy in 1973 when she started the “Green Guerrillas”. The first seed grenades were made from condoms filled with local wildflower seeds, water and fertilizer. They were tossed over fences onto empty lots in New York City in order to make the neighborhoods look better. It was the start of the Guerilla Gardening movement.”
On this ride, everyone met at Olvera Street, rode through Downtown L.A., and all down Whittier Blvd to East L.A. chucking seed bombs all along the route. We ended up at one of our fellow Psyco sisters house at the end and relaxed watching an independent film called ” The day I became a woman.”
