Come Walk Elysian Park... Then Ride Elysian Park

I swear, I'm going to get people Downtown to come check out Elysian Park just by overwhelming you with posts about it (see here).

Tomorrow morning Scott Fajack (a member of the blogdowntown flickr pool) leads the Echo Park Historical Society's monthly Elysian Park walking tour, focusing on the park's eastern edge (the Broadway side). I've explored this part of the park, but only on a bike, so I'm excited to take a walk and check things out in more depth. The walk starts at 10am, and EPHS requests a $5 donation. Reservations are "required", but Scott assures me no one who shows up will be turned away.

The very next day the IAAL-MAF hosts its third invitational, the No Surrender Monkeys ride. It leaves Brite Spot in Echo Park at 3pm, winding through Angelino Heights, Bunker Hill and Elysian Park. Yes, there will be hills, but this ride is worth every one of them.
