Ride to Burning Man 2010 LA Decompression EcoSalon!

This year’s LA Decompression offers plenty for cyclists and green types–and 8 stages of entertainment for all ages!!

In addition to an interactive EcoSalon to discuss green topics, Midnight Ridazz is leading a ride there!

After all, if Black Rock City’s Metropolis can be car free, why can’t we do this at home?

Here’s the line-up for the EcoSalon:

1:30-2:15 Bobby Gadda and Gwendolyn Alley

Car Free in BRC – Why not LA?
2:15-3 Karen Neal, Joan Stevens,  Eric Werbalowsky, Marialyce Pedersen and Natalie Freidberg Eat Your Yard – Homesteading in the City
3-3:45 Allan Lee Haskell

DIY Graywater
3:45-4:40 Mark Lakeman and Camille Cimino City Repair – lessons from Portland and local inspiration
4:40-5:30 Francis DellaVecchia Joyful Activist Playshop
5:30-6 Eric Werbalowsky and Joan Stevens (and special guests) Permaculture Revolution – a how-to –  and Community Dialogue:

action steps to create a sustainable home, neighborhood, and city

7:15-7:30 Blues Traveler and the Midnight Ridazz

Bike Bling Awards

7:15-8 Greg Wendt Sustainable Wealth
8-9 Geofrey Collins Community Architecture


Here are some more fun interactive ways you can participate in LA Decompression plus details of the RIDE!

The Burner Bizarre is setting up again this year, except this time its a full on clothing swap. Thats right. You are invited to clean out our closets. Clothing for all ages is welcome from infant to full grown. Also hats, handbags, gloves, shoes, and other accessories are welcome as well. And of course costume items are always welcome. Bring a big bag or just a few items. And while you are there gifting your stuff, go through what others have brought and take home some new duds. All left over clothing will be donated to “My Friends Place” www.myfriendsplace.org

Tabula Rasa is also coming back again this year. They are the beading and jewelry making camp. At BM this year they were place at Center Camp on Ring Road and therefore their beads were pretty depleted. They are asking everyone to bring their broken necklaces, left over beads, buttons, and crafting stuff. Anything that you could make jewelry out of and help resupply. And of course stay for a while and make something for yourself.

Midnight Ridazz: Bike Ride to Decom

Bust out your blingy and blinky bikes, it’s time to party!!!

You can get around Black Rock City on a bike, so why not in our own “Metropolis” of Los Angeles?

On Saturday, October 2, 2010, the LA Burning Man Decompression Festival (“Decom”) – the destination of this ride – will be taking place with the theme of envisioning what a “Metropolis” could be, cutting across the art and theme camps this year.

Could LA be more like Black Rock City? Imagine seeing everyone on bikes?? Like Burning Man, LA will be closing several streets to cars the next weekend after Decom so pedestrians, bikes, skaters, and everyone else can enjoy the first-ever CicLAvia event – ciclavia.org – in our town; check it out!

Show up at Decom in style with your biking buddies from Midnight Ridazz, whether you’ve been to Burning Man or not 🙂

There will be a contest to see who has the best “blinky” lighting and best bling on your bike!

Meet at 4:20 PM 🙂 in front of the street entrance to the Metro Red Line Hollywood/Highland Station, riding to Decom at the LA State Historic Park (“the Cornfields”) in downtown.

The route will be mostly downhill, with two small uphills; the ride should take about an hour.

Just like Burning Man, this is a self-directed activity by each person, so bring your “radical self-reliance” to take care of your bike if you have a flat tire, etc., and don’t forget to bring a bike lock too!
