Los Angeles Romance Ride

What has two wheels and an encyclopedic knowledge of Hollywood facts and filming locations? The folks at The Pleasure Chest. This Sunday, they’re arranging a bike ride around Hollywood to visit on the landmarks of real and fictional Tinsel Town romance.

You’ll meet at the sex shop’s parking lot at 7733 Santa Monica Blvd (between Spaulding and Genesee) at one in the afternoon. You’ll go on an easy bike ride around the area, which will run approximately an hour and a half. Then, you’ll reconvene at the Pleasure Chest for a costume contest, vintage smut films, beer, wine, popcorn, and some cupcakes.

More details, from the Pleasure Chest blog:

This will be an easy ride with no big hills. We’ll go at a slow and easy pace with frequent stops. Route slips will be included and expert bicycle mechanics will accompany us on this tour. Your fearless ride leaders and the bumpin’ beats of the bicycle boombox will enable you to hear us wherever we go. If you’re planning to enjoy the afterparty at the store, be prepared to lock your bike outside or pack it in your vehicle before joining us for the festivities. If there is rain, the ride will be canceled. You do not need to RSVP to participate, but you can tell us you’re coming at this Facebook event page.

Wardrobe theme is “Red Romance.” Interpret however you like. Just remember that obscenity laws exist, etc. You’ve been warned.
