Le Tour de Watts Is back! This summer the Tour de Watts will take place on Saturday, August 26th at 9:00am. This ride is Free and all are welcome. Helmets strongly encouraged and are required by law if under 18.

Location: The Watts Towers at 1727 East 107th Street, Los Angeles, CA

Parking is very limited, participants are encouraged to take public transportation. The Watts Towers are accessible from the 103rd Street Blue line Station, and the Imperial/Wilmington Blue Line/Green Line station.

Ride length: 11 or 22 miles

We will be traveling from the Watts Towers, about 11 miles on the street to the African Marketplace at the Rancho Cienega park.

There will be a return trip to Watts via the Blue Line. We will ride back to the Blue Line after about an hour of giving people time to experience the African Marketplace.

The pace will be very easy.

This is a “some riders left behind” ride; there is no support for breakdowns or blowouts. Please make sure that your bike is in proper working condition. We will be riding on city streets and will encounter some bumps and potholes along the way. Bring money, tokens, or monthly passes for access to the blue line.
