Event description


Tired of holiday leftovers? Enjoy a two-wheeled tour of seafood tacos and pan dulce in Boyle Heights, presented by the Metro Bicycle Education Safety Training (BEST) Program.

Beginning at the Metro Bike Hub at Union Station, join C.I.C.L.E. for a ride to Boyle Heights to visit the wildly popular and award-winning Mariscos Jalisco food truck. Along the way, we’ll check out other East LA historical landmarks, such as the Plaza De La Raza.

Don’t forget dessert! After feasting on delicious tacos, we’ll ride over to La Mascota Bakery, one of the oldest running bakeries in Boyle Heights and try their pan dulce and other goodies. (They’ve also been voted best tamales in Boyle Heights - pick up a few while you’re there.)
