What is the Neighborhood Bike Ambassador Program?
The Neighborhood Bike Ambassador program is a new 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 new 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 starting in early fall 2012 and each area committee will generate a set of goals to pursue over the coming months.
