L.A.’s Freedom Ride: Black Kids on Bikes

On the fourth Sunday of every month, cyclists take to the streets of Los Angeles for the "Black Kids on Bikes"
(BKoB) ride. BKoB is part of a series of events called "Freedom
Rides," aimed at getting more black Angelenos to enjoy the unique
experience of group cycling. BKoB aims to provide a safe, fun
venue for kids to ride the streets. Despite the name, the rides are open to cyclists of all races, ages, and skill levels.

The ride is the brainchild of organizer James Spooner, who wears many hats. Some know him as a Bikerowave volunteer, others as a tattoo artist. Still others know him as the groundbreaking film maker responsible for the 2003 cult film "Afro-Punk."
