What do a pickle factory, a surfboard startup and a hipster bicycling apparel shop have in common? They're all attractions along the newest C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change Through Live Exchange) group ride, Made in L.A. Ride III: L.A. River Edition. The 8-mile ride, beginning at the Los Angeles River Center & Gardens in Cypress Park and taking place along the L.A. River, is focused on exploring awesome goodies made by Angelenos, for Angelenos. Kruegermann Pickle Factory, nestled between the 5 and 134 freeways on Gilroy Street; the local chapter of Grain Surfboards, a grassroots company that builds surfboards out of hollowed wood; and Swrve, the Glassell Park purveyor of bicycle-friendly skinny jeans, are main stops on Saturday's ride. C.I.C.L.E rides are family-friendly, leisurely paced and accompanied by C.I.C.L.E. leaders familiar with the art of group rides on city streets. Bring water, a snack and a bicycle in good working condition. Children under 8 are encouraged to have a tag-along, bicycle trailer or other child-safe device in order to participate in the ride. 570 W. Avenue 26, Cypress Park; Sat., Sept. 21, 10:30 a.m.; free.
