It’s back! Get ready for our (fifth?) annual Design-n-Dim Sum bike ride with Flying Pigeon on Sunday, June 2nd for another day of studio visits, biking and bao. This year we have a stellar lineup of studio visits, including furniture maker Stefan Bishop, the live-work studio of architect Astrid Diehl and artist Eddy Sykes, and master ceramicist Tracy Wilkinson. We’ll be meeting at bike shop Flying Pigeon in Highland Park at 11am and will be on the road by 11:30am for a quick trip up to Glassell Park, then roll over the river to Frogtown before heading south to Chinatown. Total distance for the day will be about 9 miles (you can ride one mile or take the Gold Line from Chinatown if you need to ride back to Flying Pigeon to return your bike or get to your car).
