South Bay bicyclists jammed the free bike valet parking lot for the third consecutive day as Labor Day crowds soaked up the sunshine, music, food and beach culture at Fiesta Hermosa on Monday. It was all smiles, good times and another perfect day on the sand for me and my fellow volunteers from the South Bay Bicycle Coalition and the Beach Cities Cycling Club as we watched over a sea of bicycles, while we also watched dolphins play in the waters just south of the Hermosa Pier. Once again the gang from Hermosa Cyclery put in a full day overseeing the operation and making sure hundreds of bicyclists got their tires properly inflated before they rode off.
