ICYMI: Here Are the Wildest Scenes From the Hundreds of Bikers with Fireworks That Cruised Through L.A. This Weekend

[dropcap size=big]F[/dropcap]or the last eight years, Chief Lunes, a local Los Angeles bicycle club, has lit up L.A. every July 3rd. This year was no different. Dubbed the "Fireworks Party Ride #8," it started around USC and took riders through downtown Los Angeles, Skid Row, and up through Frogtown, eventually stopping at an undisclosed location in Glendale by the L.A. River. At the final location, riders were met with a band and DJ that kept the party rocking late into the night.
