6/7/09 - Long Beach City Councilwomen Suja Lowenthal, left, leads a pack of kids on a Family Fun
Ride through Shoreline Aquatic Park in Long Beach and twice around the Lions Lighthouse. The event which was held in partnership with the 9th Annual Los Angeles River Ride, had bicycle safety workshops, free bicycle helmets as well as 40 bicycles that were given away for free.
When the 40 names were called out to receive the free bikes and there were 3 kids left on the list that did not receive a bike, Suja Lowenthal promised to put up the money and by the kids new bicycles herself.
