Celebrate Bike Month with LACBCMay 6, 2011 at 1:31 pm | Posted in LACBC Events | 8 Comments
While we here at LACBC celebrate bikes every month, but May has officially been declared as National Bike Month! Now’s a great time to dust off that bike that’s been sitting in your garage or introduce biking to a friend!
Celebrate bicycling by supporting bicycle advocacy with an LACBC membership and maybe even ride away with a brand new electric bike, courtesy of IZIP Store and Currie Technologies! Anyone who becomes an LACBC member or renews an existing membership from now through June 6, 2011 will automatically be entered in a drawing for a brand new IZIP Via Rapido (Diamond frame) electric bike valued at $1,400! See our membership page for more details to sign up or renew.
Other ways to celebrate bicycling include participating in a slew of Bike Month events around the County, including some of LACBC’s Bike to (& from) Work Day events on Thursday, May 19th during Bike Week LA !
Bike to Work Day Morning Pit Stops:
LACBC will be hosting a pit stop in front of the Caltrans building at 100 S. Main Street in downtown LA from 6 AM to 9 AM. Come stop by for some free giveaways and snacks.
UPDATE: You can also find LACBC’s City of Lights Crew in MacArthur Park at 7th and Alvarado from 6 AM to 9 AM. Stop by to learn more about the 7th Street Bike Plane Campaign and grab some snacks and other goodies.
