Car Culture and Bike Culture: American Legion’s Lowrider Bike Show, and other activities

Car culture and bicycle culture sometimes seem at odds.  Other times, such as Monterey County’s 4-day Celebration of Cycling, the Sea Otter Classic; Deadend Magazine’s Burrito Bike Ridesand the American Legion Post 589’s Lowrider Bike Show, car culture and bike culture come together to maximize their fun!
