It’s back! Our annual design-n-dim sum bike ride is back, minus the dim sum (but don’t worry, there are plenty of places to eat nearby). This year we’re teaming up with the LA Design Festival to stop by some of the newest in retail design, studios, and museums near the Arts District for a tour.

This year we have a stellar lineup of stops, including the latest outpost of design store Poketo, a stop to see the handmade craftsmanship at Neptune Glassworks, a visit to the new(ish) home of the A+D Museum, and we end back at the ROW for a quick throwing demo at ceramics studio and gallery Still Life Ceramics founded by Ana Henton and Mel Keedle. We’ll be meeting at the ROW DTLA at 11am for our first stop at Poketo and will be on the road by 11:30am for a quick trip to Neptune and then the A+D, returning back to the ROW for our final stop at Still Life. Total distance for the day will only be about 2 miles roundtrip so this will be an easy ride for the family!
