Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) is a membership-based nonprofit organization that works to make all communities in LA County healthy, safe, and fun places to ride bicycles through advocacy, education, and outreach. LACBC envisions a Los Angeles County that is a great place for every day, year-round bicycling. People want to live in healthier, more vibrant communities, where the air is cleaner, and streets are both quieter and safer for everyone. More women, families and children ride their bikes, and appreciate opportunities to enjoy their neighborhoods and their city.
In addition, there is a lack of investment for safe and accessible networks for walking and biking particularly in low-income communities of color, which have the highest rates of traffic injuries and fatalities. LACBC recognizes our role in shaping regional policy to address these disparities and advocates for intentional policies to address inequity. All people, of varying cultures and backgrounds, should be able to ride their bikes everywhere, safely, and conveniently. We believe that cycling is not only a great form of recreation but is a great form of transportation that not only can help improve one’s physical and mental health, but also bring together our communities in brand new ways.
