Photos & report from Ventucky Vice ArtRide on my bikergo!

What a glorious day! Perfect summer weather for a Ventucky Vice ArtRide on my bikergo along the beach and the streets of Ventura!

Here we are, decked out as the Ventucky Vice squad, a group shot on the Ventura Beach Promenade with the Pier in the background. Check out my 6″ platform shoes–that match my bikergo!

For the July ride, our squad ranged from 20-35, as people came and went along the route.

We started at the Artists Union, as usual, meeting up there at 530pm and rolling along the promenade a little after 6pm.

We stopped at the Ventura River Bike path for a photo opp; do you see the palm tree on the back of my bikergo? It plays two songs and lights on the tree dance in time to the music…

From the Ventura River bike path, we turned onto Main where we dismounted to see the student art exhibit at CSUCI. We cruised up Main past Winchesters and Bernadettes, then rolled back down Main to stop at Love Fox to see Winston’s drawings and to enjoy his light lemony home-made hummous. Just in case you didn’t know, Winston did the logo for the Ventura Bicycle Union. There are several new shops these days in the El Jardin courtyard and we look forward to riding over there another day for a visit!

Next we went south on Ventura Avenue to visit the WAV, then north to Bell Arts Factory where we lost ourselves in fine art of all stripes. Yes, it’s an easy, flat ride with plenty of stops!

Our final stop was Art City where Art Ciizens had an art show plus a spread of snacks. Thanks to Anacapa for the donation of 8 growlers of beer including a porter, a new golden ale, and a red. The fire and the evening roared on but my feet gave out first and said it was time to ride home.

Thanks to Daniel Bogg and my iPhone for ArtRide photos! More and different ones will be up in a moment over at Art Predator; I’ll add more here as people send them to me!

Save the dates: August 6 First Friday ArtRide; August 7 County Fair ArtRide.
