Our LACBC Family program continues this holiday season as we are partnering with Walk Bike Glendale joining in on their Annual Holiday Bike Ride.
We'll be rolling across the City of Glendale taking in a number of lights and need a number of marshals to keep a fast and slow group of riders rolling.
Here's the route for this year's ride.
We will be meeting at 5:30 p.m. at Nibley Park and will be finishing around 8:30 p.m.WHENDecember 17, 2017 at 5pmWHERENibley Park

Operation Firefly relies on its "Team Firefly" volunteers to accomplish our goals. We have distributed lights and information to more than 9,000 people since the program’s inception in 2012 and we set an increasingly higher goal each year. For the winter of 2017-2018, we're aiming to serve 3,500 people county wide and we need your help. We'll be conducting Operation Firefly light distributions all over LA County following the time change in November and ending the first week of March. Each distribution event is typically Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday evenings, 4:30 - 7 pm.
Join Team Firefly today and we'll send you regular updates with dates and locations as the calendar progresses. There's no pressure and you need only respond to dates and locations that work for you. Each season we usually have around 150 volunteers total, many of whom do 1 or 2 events and some who do multiple events.
Overall, we always need more volunteers and many hands truly do make light work. We need bilingual English/Spanish speaking volunteers for recipients who speak Spanish and we also need female volunteers to encourage female riders to stop. Of course, Operation Firefly distributions are a lot of fun and everyone goes home with a big smile on their face. Sign up for Team Firefly today and please invite a few of your friends. Thanks.-Colin Bogart, Education DirectorPlease RSVP on the links below to volunteer for any of these Operation Firefly Events:

What is the Neighborhood Bike Ambassador Program?
The Neighborhood Bike Ambassador program is a way for LACBC members & volunteers to work on neighborhood-scale projects and organize local support for bike projects and LACBC campaigns in the City of Los Angeles.
This LACBC initiative is to support the implementation of the City of LA bicycle master plan. Neighborhood Bike Ambassadors will work on one of 5 City of LA area committees: the Valley, South LA, the Westside, Central LA, and the Eastside/Northeast LA.
What do Neighborhood Bike Ambassadors Do?
Neighborhood Bike Ambassadors build local street level support for bike projects like bike lanes, boulevards, bike parking corrals, bike friendly business districts and more. Bike Ambassadors will work with Neighborhood Councils and other local neighborhood & community groups including local businesses, schools, churches, etc to build awareness & support for projects, create safer streets, and help make Los Angeles healthier. Ambassadors will organize community bike rides and other fun and educational events to help get more Angelenos out cycling.
Neighborhood Bike Ambassadors will meet monthly. We need your passion, talents, and love for Los Angeles! Sign-up to get involved today!Take the survey
