    Whether you've been riding for a long time but still feel unfamiliar with how to ride in traffic or you're new to urban bicycle riding and don't feel confident on the road, this is a great place to start. This free class offers the basic principles of urban bicycling that you need to know.

    * What is the most common mistake bicyclists make that can lead to a collision with motor vehicles?
    * Which is more important when riding at night, a front light, a rear light, or reflective gear?
    * Are bicycle helmets required by law?
    * What is the most common driver error that can lead to a collision with bicycle riders?
    * Is it okay to ride on the sidewalk?
     
    We'll cover these questions and more. You don't need a bike for this in-class workshop.

    The 3rd Annual Awards Gala

    FIREFLY BALL 

    Named out of its timing with the seasonal launch of Operation Firefly, an education and bike light distribution program of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC), the Firefly Ball is a light-filled evening of music, food and drink. Celebrate with us as we honor community members while raising much needed funds for L.A.’s largest, full-service bike advocacy nonprofit—LACBC!

    This annual charity event honors those people in the business community who lead by personal example, longtime grassroots activists who are passionate advocates for bicycling, elected officials who walk on the side of innovation. All champions who work to make L.A. more bike-friendly and support LACBC. This year, we will be honoring:

    • The Ovarian Psycos Cycle Brigade with the Alex Baum Excellence in Advocacy Award

    • Culver City Councilmember Meghan Sahli-Wells with the Innovator Award

    • The Walt Disney Company with the Passionate Pedal Award

    We are looking to the generosity of the public and of business leaders like you who want to see Los Angeles turn into a city that rivals the most bike-friendly cities for their transportation innovation.

    Reserve your ticket below. Please direct questions to fireflyball@la-bike.org.

    The 2016 Firefly Ball Committee is: Shanon Muir, Chair | Daniella Alcedo | Eric Bruins | Jim Pocrass | Elizabeth Ann John | Michelle Weiner | Tamika Butler
