Beat the pump, cycle the town, and enjoy Santa Monica’s sights and sounds with Tour da Arts, vol. 6. The Santa Monica Museum of Art’s sixth annual event takes you on a ride filled with music, dance, and art.

The free all-day event offers art, music, performances, and sustainable transportation advocacy. Tour da Arts begins with a bicycle-themed festival at the Santa Monica Museum of Art. Then, the ride takes off for a nine-mile loop with stops at John Adams Middle School for a screening and performance with artist Miwa Matreyek; the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club for interactive music with Anna Oxygen; and back to the Museum for a theater performance of Bike Odyssey LA.
