Downtown Art Ride Approaching

The Downtown Art Walk is a very cool thing, but if you've ever been you've surely noticed that it's a little hard to actually walk the thing. With galleries spread all the way from 15th & Hope to Little Tokyo, you better have a good bit of time and a strong pair of legs if you want to do it all on foot.

That's where a pair of wheels comes in handy. On a bike the distance between galleries is nothing. Downtown blogger eecue came up with the idea for the Downtown Art Ride, an Art Walk companion that gets a group together on bikes, stopping at each gallery for a 10-minute scan. After the ride you can come back to the ones you want to check out in more depth, but this way you get to hit a bunch of galleries in one night.

Cartifact let me make a route map, which you can check out as either a PDF (1.3MB) or JPEG.

The Art Ride -- and Art Walk -- are this Thursday. The ride meets at Downtown Art Gallery at 5pm. Come check it out.
