    I ride to work 3 days a week and for fun whenever I can!
  • commented 2016-12-03 17:33:25 -0800
    I cycle for the joy of it — wind in the hair (albeit helmet covered), new vistas viewed from new perspectives, thrilling downhills, and satisfying exercise.

    Appreciate all LACBC has done to improve biking infrastructure in our huge county, and am looking forward to supporting more great projects ensuring biking is safe and fun for Angelenos.

    Love all types of riding, casual/city, road, mountain. We are all fortunate to live in one of the most bike-conducive areas in the world – it would be nice to get more people out of car seats and on to bike seats!

    I cycle for primarily for transportation around town and work in DTLA. Bicycling is more than just a recreational activity which I also enjoy. I support all efforts to make all streets and intersections safer for pedestrians and bicyclists. We need protected bike lanes.

    I bike to help maintain physical fitness. The nice scenery of the Los Angeles area makes it more fun.

    Live Santa Monica, head straight for the hills almost every ride – Mandeville, Topanga, Fernwood, Piuma, Latigo… Only once hit by a car on Main St, SM. Would love to do more long distance in the city if safe and decent routes were developed. Supporting LABC as it has clearly helped to promote biking and bike saftey for all uses in the city.

    I only ride about once a week now, primarily on traffic-free bike paths (e.g., Ballona), since falling and breaking some ribs four years ago. However, I remain a committed advocate for bikes and for making LA a better place to ride, because I know it has the potential to someday be the greatest cycling city in the world. Thank you, LACBC, for promoting safer streets and better driver education.

    I ride 4-5 times a week, mostly for fitness. I live near LAX, and ride the beach bike path. I ride the Santa Monica mountains, and the PV peninsula. I ride through the city to Ciclavia, and the LA River. This morning I rode to the Venice farmers market. Tomorrow I will be leading a team training ride for the Bike MS Coastal Challenge event coming up in March.

    The best thing we can do for LA is to get our families, friends and colleagues out on their bikes. The more cyclists, the better. It’s easier to advocate for more bike lanes when the existing ones are getting lots of use. Drivers are more likely to see us if they are expecting to see cyclists. Businesses will install bike racks when they see customers arriving on bikes.

    I bike from Mar Vista to Hollywood to commute to work every day. I love to bike because it gives me an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and to clear my head, especially when the weather is beautiful (which it so often is).

    LA’s roads have a long way to go before they’re safe and inclusive for cyclists and pedestrians. Close calls with cars happen too often, and drivers fail to see that a small risk to them can easily translate into a life or death situation for a cyclist. I’m hopeful that things are changing for the better!

    I live in Silverlake and ride to work at UCLA in AM then take Metro home (too much traffic at night). My husband and I ride on weekends in Griffith Park, river trail, and elsewhere. Cycling is fun and meeting other cyclists via groups like this is a blast!

    I ride around the LA River, San Gabriel and Rio Hondo bike paths. Love riding just about anywhere..😄🚵🚴🏻🚴🏻‍♀️🚵‍♀️

    I live in Long Beach and I ride in Long Beach, I love to the ride by the beach but LA is amazing to ride as well!

    I bike locally and on bicycle touring trips. Ramping up to do centuries again. I love the feeling of being out on the road or trail on a bike, alone or with friends.

    I bike to and from work almost every day of the week. It is one of the highlights of my day (and so much better than sitting in traffic)! I want to support LACBC in its efforts to make walking and cycling more enjoyable and more safe for all Angelinos.

    I have been down from cycling for a while because of a major knee surgery and I’m just getting well enough to get back on the bike. I’m not competition or fitness necessarily, but more for transportation whenever possible.

    Love to Bike The LA River trail
  • commented 2016-11-02 17:43:12 -0700
    I bike with 3 buddies on weekends and we love it. We ride out to Malibu and we ride in Griffith Park and lots of places in between. Every ride includes a stop for coffee. Long live biking!

    I bike all over Santa Monica and West LA, and love biking CicLAvia. I’m a bicycle and pedestrian planner working to improve bicycling safety and conditions all over LA, with a focus on South LA and DTLA. If you bike in those areas, hope you’ll join the USC Bicycle Coalition to improve safety and build the bicycling community in South LA!
  • commented 2016-10-23 11:15:31 -0700
    I like to bike CicLAvia, the trail at Santa Fe Dam and mountain bike the El Prieto Trail.

    I think more bike trails and dedicated bike paths all over LA would make things a lot better for Los Angeles!

    As much and as often as I can. Started riding in LA as a new immigrant in 1986 and still have my Mongoose (my first major purchase, on layaway for a long time) as my commuting workhorse, although I also have a new bike that weighs 1/3 what the old one does! I ride the West Valley and Pasadena, which I like due to the wide streets.

    I see riding in LA as a very high risk proposition, reason for which I am a major safety advocate and am re-joining in honor of my niece, currently in critical condition at Harbor UCLA after being hit by a driver under the influence. Sadly, she was not wearing a helmet.

    All that needs to be done in LA to make riding better is making it safer and driver education and traffic enforcement is the biggest part of that.

    My bicycling career began at age 5, when a neighbor and I self-taught ourselves how to ride. High school excepted, I’ve been riding ever since. I rode to work throughout my professional career, adding more miles in short rides around town and riding the California coast on multiple occasions. Now retired, my husband and I go on work out rides together and I still ride around town. That’s 60 years of riding and more to go!

    I bike to the gym, the beach, and nearby stores. Other times I bike just for the love of cycling and being free from the confines of a car.

    I commute by bike two days a week from Sunset Park to UCLA. Good to start and end my work day with something that puts me in a happy mood. The improved infrastructure (bike lanes, the Expo path) make a big difference.

    I bike to work and everywhere.

    I just got back for the 2016 California Dream Ride!!! rode from SLO to LA over 5 days. I saw so many cool things that I never knew existed in CA and I grew up here!!!! Get Out and Ride

    The majority of my riding is done within the Santa Clarita Valley. I especially love the protected bike paths/lanes that we have available to ride on. I have ridden to LA and taken Metrolink back and I have ridden in the Orange County and San Diego areas and utilized Amtrak. I am currently in Big Bear exploring the area on my road bike. #havebikewilltravel
