Recently LACBC hosted the first of many Regional meetings, which included representatives from South Bay Bicycle Coalition (Todd Dipaola), San Gabriel Valley Bicycle Coalition (Vincent Chang and Joseph Leon), Santa Monica Spoke (Cynthia Rose and Bryan Beretta), UCLA Bicycle Coalition (Herbie Huff), Glendale (Colin Bogart), and West Hollywood (Kevin Burton).

Some of the purposes of meeting was to bring together various regional groups associated with LACBC  to share ideas, resources, and understand how each group could help each other symbiotically grow the bicycle community.

While each group is in a different level of development,  we discussed some common goals and philosophies- that bicycle facilities and infrastructure are very important and a priority, that we need to help grow the bicycle community and reach out to would-be and everyday cyclists, and that we need to work to educate police departments, motorists and bicyclists on bicycle safety and laws.

Some next steps arising from the meeting:

  • A meeting is set for around July 28th, at LACBC Headquarters, 634 S. Spring Street LA 90014
  • A google group is being created for interested folks to participate in regional issues
  • Websites for each various group will be linked to each other

So if you are involved in your local region in LA County, or you just want to learn more,  please e-mail Dorothy@la-bike.org.  Also look out for a notice about the next meeting in July!

we are a silly group also!
