Mark your calendar for Sunday, March 6, 2016, for the Giant Donuts of Los Angeles bicycle tour. At least ten extant Giant Donuts, apotheoses of programmatic architecture, remain throughout the Southland. Architecture Burger’s Smart Patrol will survey eight of them and sample their wares during a vigorous, donut-powered, 55-mile loop ride. The tour will cover ground in divers communities including Los Angeles, Bellflower, Carson, Compton, Gardena, Hawthorne, Inglewood, Lakewood, Lennox, Long Beach, Paramount, Torrance, Watts, West Athens, and Willowbrook.
