For the Lowrider Bike Club ‘Bikes on the Blvd,’ Building and Riding Provide Members a Sense of Family and Purpose

Welcome to our Lowrider Bike Week,  presented by Tecate, the official beer of L.A. TACO. Each day this week, our Senior Photographer Erwin Recinos will bring you features and photo essays celebrating the best of L.A.'s thriving lowbike scene. If you have a fly lowbike and would like to show it off to our L.A. TACO followers, send us a photo and your Instagram handle at editor@lataco.com. We'll post it up on our IG stories and give you a shout-out. 

[dropcap size=big]F[/dropcap]ounders of the lowrider bike club “Bikes on the Blvd,” Arnold “Stacks” Flores, and Jesse “Blue” Uribe had been homies long before the pandemic. They also both enjoyed working on bikes. Stacks shared an idea of working on bikes together while cruising Whittier Boulevard to the arch after Arizona Avenue. It was a simple idea, and they both acted on it, immediately working on a plan to execute. From this idea, Blue, Stacks, and Raul—Arnold’s son—laid the foundation to create the bike club “Bikes in the Blvd.” In less than a year, the bike club has grown to 30 members ranging from ages four to 37. It’s a very close-knit group of enthusiastic individuals that want to participate in L.A.’s bike culture and eventually move up to cars. 

Stacks is the club’s founder and a steady pillar to the bike club as a mentor and OG. Blue is president of the club, respects his peers, and is a driving force behind the club’s growth. Arnold’s wife, Suly Argueta, is the self-proclaimed bike club mom that helps with ordering shirts, plaques and keeping the parents involved. Raul, Stack’s son, is the vice president and face of the club that has helped bring new members. 

After their big July 2nd bike event, Blue tells L.A. TACO that he is already making plans in his garage for a bike super show for the kids to be involved in. For Blue, it’s a blessing to be a part of this club, and it’s given him a sense of family and purpose.
