Adopt-an-Intersection @ CicLAvia 4.15.12 – 4th and Boyle

 

We were very happy to have adopted an intersection at this year’s CicLAvia 4.15.12!
 
The brigade was psoted up at the intersection of 4th and Boyle in Boyle Heights (represent!) from 9:ooam-3:oopm!
 
Accross the street, a local business owner was nice enough to let us hook up to his electricity so our very own Xela & Fingers could hype up the crowd. ;)
 
We sold the Boyle Heights Cyclavia 2012 cycalaca t-shirts and tanks and had an all-around great time saying hello to the ovarian psycolists who call LA home. <3 
 

 

Vagina Monologues Ride to Culebra Park 4/14/12

The Vagina Monologues are a series of monologues each read by a different woman about different issues concerning well..the vagina. These include love, sex, rape, masturbation, female genital mutilation and many more.

Ovarian Psycos was proud to have joined Bike Scum and ACLA in presenting their first ever Vagina Monologues at Tierra de la Culebra Park. A group of about 10 womyn rode from “La Historic National Park” – also known as “Not a Cornfield” to the event in Highland Park.

ResuWRENCHion pt. 1

On Saturday, April 7th Ovarian Psycos took a very important step by bringing the community of Boyle Heights the very first ResuWRENCHion bicycle repair day at Proyecto Jardin in preparation of this Spring’s CicLAvia. <3

With the help of volunteer bike mechanics from all over Los Angeles, we helped repair and tune up about 20 bikes for kids as young as 6 to adults in their 30′s and 40′s!

A special thank you needs to go out to James and Ray from Bici Libre & Andy and Chris from Bike Oven as well as a few amazing individual mechanics like Jimmy and Edgar, Bobby and Joe from LACBC and of course the Ovarian Psycos!

None of this would have been possible without the help of Josef from Flying Pigeon LA  and Building Healthy Communities Boyle Heights who kindly donated all of the materials!

We look forward to providing more bike repair workshops and work days like this one as we prepare to open up a bike co-op in Boyle Heights next year……… stay tuned for that <3
