12:18 PM PDT on July 2, 2021

    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 We'll post it up on our IG stories and give you a shout-out. 

    [dropcap size=big]L[/dropcap]ast weekend was the 1st Annual Bike & Pedal Car Show hosted by First Class Bike Club at Grant Rea Park in Montebello. The park was packed with families and children playing in the water playground, providing a feeling of wholesome good clean fun as people return to being out again. The event was held at the end of the park towards Lincoln Avenue.

    Everything was on display. It was a mix of lowriders and bikes, but the bikes were what you came for the first time. There was a judge present going around, and there were different trophies for particular categories. It showed the nuances of lowbikes currently taking shape in Los Angeles. The attendees ranged from their 40s to pre-teens, a generational gap bridged by a love for lowbike culture.

    The boy in the photo wearing the Pirates hat and bandana around him with the matching bike gold and chrome accents is the president of the Youngsters bike club. They had a significant presence in the show.

    The next big lowbike show in Los Angeles is happening tomorrow at noon at 570 S. Atlantic Boulevard in East Los Angeles. It is organized by Bikes on the Blvd. For all the details, find their post here
