PHOTO RECAP! Psycos Recycle–A Day @ Long Beach 12/18/11


 A DAY in the LBC!

The first krew starts from Montebello Park around 1:00 PM and rides along the beautiful urban riverpath to met up with with the Southeast LA krew. They meet up on Imperial where the Rio Hondo and LA River meet on the bike path.

The cyclists stop a little over midway to partake in a stretching session and some wholesome snacking! Maryann’s got that reusable canteen! ❤

They hustle to make it in about 2 hours.

The roadside is lined with sage bushes that the girls can’t help but pick.

The group engages in some beautification at Long Beach. The group picks up trash along the shore. The majority of trash is Styrofoam which IS NOT RECYCLEABLE!

Other fun items found: a bloody tampon and a condom. EWW. Seriously, people?

So, please help reduce waste and protect the environment by riding your bike & opting for reusable containers such as a kleen kanteen or bobble water bottle, with a build in water filter (starting at 6$ online)!

This holiday season, please keep mother earth in mind and make sure your gifts are eco-friendly. ♥

Love always,

The Ovas

Beet-viche Recipe

  • 2-3 Whole Beets
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 4-5 Carrots
  • 3 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 Cilantro Bushel
  • Sea Salt or- Kosher (nothing iodized or bleached- healthier)

Start by washing your beets very well – cut off the ends and roots. Get a small grater and grate the beets. Grate the carrots completely as well. Dice the tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Mix everything together in a container. Add lemon and sea/kosher salt to taste and serve with tostadas and enjoy! Add avocado and tapatio for a most delectable dish.

Health facts: beets (and beet juices) are a blood-building herb that detoxifies blood and renews it with minerals and natural sugars. They can also fight cancer and prevent health defects.

Get to Know the Ovarian Psycos–Mayra

    • Name/Ova Alias: Mayra
    • Your bici’s name/alias: La Bici blue
      • Born and Raised In: Huntington Park/Walnut Park/ South Gate!!!!!
      • Day Job(s)/Night Job(s): Multimedia Tech/Bad Ass 24/7
      • First Ovarian Psycos ride: The seed-bombing ride. We met up at Placita Olvera last year. Overall it was such an eye opening experience, that I knew right there and then that I was HOOKED!
      • Reason(s) for joining/staying: Sisterhood
      • Best and worst experience on a ride: Best experience was seeing women who hadn’t been on a bike in XX amount of years totally having a blast. Also, I love that fact that through the rides, I have been discovering parts of LA I have never seen. Worst: When some guys took over the ride during our suicide awareness ride. I got pissed, not because they were guys, but it was OUR ride. Peeps need to respect and help find a solution together. Not be all quick to “take over” the situation.
  • What have you accomplished/ still hope to accomplish as Ovarian Psycos? I hope we can bring more bike awareness throughout LA. One day there will be bike lanes in all our neighborhoods.
  • Words of wisdom: What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
