Gil Garcetti Tomorrow at Flying Pigeon LA for Paris: Women and Bicycles

This Thursday, September 9, photographer Gil Garcetti will answer questions and sign copies of his book Paris: Women and Bicycles at Flying Pigeon LA. Flying Pigeon LA is a specialty bike retailer located at 3714 North Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA.

Los Angeles is in the throes of it’s own full-tilt bicycle renaissance, with Mayor Villaraigosa holding his own “Bike Summit” recently and a major update to the city’s long neglected bike infrastructure in the works. Yet, in the midst of this culture change, we are often starved for images of what a bike friendly city really looks like.

Garcetti’s work provides the imagery so many of us long to see. His work provides a lens with which to view our own streets, our own lives, as commuters, parents, and community members. Paris: Women and Bicycles opens up the fun and the pageantry of masses of people using bikes to get around town in their daily lives.

Flying Pigeon LA stocks the “Deluxe” line of Flying Pigeons, Batavus, Gazelle, Pashley, Biomega, Achielle, Torker, Velorbis, and Nihola Family bikes. Our accessories include the Bobike Mini/Maxi/Junior line, Yepp Maxi and Mini child seats, Design House Stockholm baskets, Pocampo Bags, Basil bags & baskets, various rear wheel locks from AXA & Abus, a select line of tires from Schwalbe, saddles and other goodies from Velo Orange and Brooks and loads of other good stuff.

Admission is free, refreshments will be served.

Getting to Flying Pigeon LA bike shop:

  • By Metro – they're served by the 81 and 83 lines and are just blocks away from the Heritage Square Gold Line Station.
  • By car, 110 Freeway, exit Avenue 43, left on Figueroa St., park at Avenue 37 and N. Figueroa St.
