Campaigns

In March 2011, the City of LA adopted the 2010 City of LA Bicycle Plan.  Through LACBC's advocacy efforts, the Plan was transformed to provide a vision for a much more bike-able Los Angeles and includes the tools that ensure implementation, provide accountability, and prioritizes low-income communities with the greatest need and highest rates of collisions. LACBC mobilized major political support and won commitments from the City for a stronger L.A. City Bike Plan.

Started as campaign for protected bike lanes on Spring and Main Streets in downtown Los Angeles, our Spring & Main Street Campaign has grown into a larger campaign for connected bicycle network of bikeways in Downtown Los Angeles. We are working closely with members of the Downtown LA Neighborhood Council (DLANC) Complete Streets Working Group to help achieve our mutual campaign goals.  To make the vision of implementing protected bicycle lanes a reality we are urging LADOT to "colonize" roadway space with buffered bicycle lanes now to make it easier to implement protected bike lanes in the near future. This campaign was launched to build off of the momentum generated from the ThinkBike workshop with Dutch planning  in the fall of 2011 that brought together community stakeholders and City of LA engineering and planning staff. 

Ride Figueroa is a LACBC East Bike Ambassador campaign designed to educate and inform Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Cypress Park, Mount Washington,  and others about a proposed bike lane on Figueroa between Colorado and San Fernando.  This proposed project is part of the 2010 Bicycle Master Plan and is meant to connect to a larger network of bicycle paths, lanes, and routes for everyone to use.  This particular project may require the removal of a travel lane to accommodate for these enhancements.

An ideal Neighborhood Greenway, 4th Street is one of the major east-west commuting streets for bicyclists in the City of Los Angeles. LACBC has been working on the 4th Street Neighborhood Greenway campaign for more than a year, continuing the work that members of the bike community have been doing for many years.

In April 2011, LACBC launched a campaign to demand a stronger bicycle master plan for the unincorporated communities in LA County.  LACBC is pressuring the County to increase the mileage of bike lanes, bicycle boulevards, and routes with sharrows included in the draft 2011 County Bike Plan. We want the County to prioritize safety through better engineering, creating accountability, and prioritizing infrastructure investments in urban unincorporated areas that have disproportionately high rates of collisions. 

The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Safe Routes to School National Partnership (SRTSNP) have partnered together to work with the City of Los Angeles to develop a successful citywide Safe Routes to School plan as outlined in the 2010 City of Los Angeles Bicycle Plan (Policy 1.1.2 D). 

LACBC has been continuously involved with and promoted the LA River bike path since 1999. We've seen miles of path added in this time, with the current path extending 7.2 miles from the Burbank side of Griffith Park to Elysian Valley south of Fletcher,  with more on the way. 

Ride Westwood is a LACBC West Bike Ambassador campaign designed to educate and inform the Westwood community and others about a proposed bike lane on Westwood Boulevard.  This proposed project is part of the 2010 Bicycle Master Plan and is meant to connect to a larger network of bicycle paths, lanes, and routes for everyone to use.  This particular project may require the removal of a travel lane or a parking lane to accommodate for these improvements.
