Community Comes Together for Councilmember Blumenfield Bike Ride

This past Saturday, LACBC was proud to play a part in L.A. City Councilmember Bob Blumenfield's 3rd Annual West Valley Community Bike Ride. Despite the threat of rain, over one hundred bicyclists showed to take part in a ten-mile tour of Reseda and Winnetka. 

LACBC was well represented with Executive Director Tamika Butler leading the way, along with our ride marshals assisting cyclists of all ages.

This rider found his experience to not be too "ruff."

At the end, Tamika accepted recognition for LACBC's participation and ride marshaling from Councilmember Blumenfield.

 

Thanks to everyone who came out, especially the LACBC Ride Marshal Team that helped guide the ride along. We also want to thank the LAPD for all their help in shuttling cyclists around and keeping the ride as smooth as possible. We look forward to next year's event and expect the continued growth of this great valley ride.
