Become an LACBC Super Hero(n) at the 11th Annual Los Angeles River Ride and win big! You won’t egret it!
LACBC created the River Ride back in 2000 when the organization was just a toddler as a means of providing much-needed funds to grow into the strong and feisty little pre-teen that we all know and love. As our signature event, the Annual Los Angeles River Ride is LACBC’s opportunity to gather the bicycling community together and ask them to ride with us, explore the LA River, learn more about us, become members, and donate.
As you may know, the 11th Annual Los Angeles River Ride is coming up on June 5th. If you love the LA River, the Annual LA River Ride, and LACBC, take the opportunity of the River Ride to become an LACBC Super Hero(n): fundraise for LACBC as a River Ride participant! It’s simple, and top fundraisers will win some of the best prizes that LACBC has ever had.
Top prizes are:
- a stellar commuter bike package worth over $1,000 courtesy of REI that includes a Novara ETA Bike, a helmet, an OnGuard Bulldog Standard U-Lock, and Novara Transfer Panniers
- a set of Mon Chasseral wheels from DT Swiss
- our beautiful 11th Annual LA River Ride Jerseys
Herbie Huff, an LACBC River Ride fundraiser from last year, says: “My friends and family know that I ride and that I care about making LA a better place to bicycle. I thought the River Ride fundraiser was a great time to ask them to donate money to the cause. It was very easy – I just sent out an email to everyone I knew explaining the advocacy work LACBC does and reminding them that I’m involved. I showed them the link to donate and welcomed them to contribute any amount. About 30 of my friends gave. In the end, I felt great sharing my passion for bike advocacy and my love for LACBC with so many of my friends.“
How do you become an LACBC Super Hero(n)?
Let’s break it down. Between your personal donation, immediate family members, and closest friends, you could be able to raise between $500 and $1000. After that, consider your colleagues at work or school. Take a few minutes to send a message every one of your Facebook friends. Then, ask your church, club, or employer to match the funds you have raised. Perhaps businesses you frequent would be willing to match funds as well.
As great as it is to tackle a challenge and win a prize, helping out a cause you love is a reward in and of itself.
To get started, please visit the 11th Annual LA River Ride fundraising page and set up your own page. You can then personalize and modify this LA River Ride Fundraising Letter Template to send to your friends, family, and acquaintances.

Thank you, and we’ll see you out riding on June 5th for the 11th Annual Los Angeles River Ride!
