The 17th Annual City of Angels Fun Ride presented by Volkswagen took place May 4, 2014. Led by Peter Heumann and his family, the event featured both recreational and advanced bike rides through Los Angeles. In the last four years, the ride has raised more than $100,000 for the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center. Recent proceeds have enabled the center to purchase a much-needed new truck for off-site blood drives.
