Bikes taking over the streets at the Pomona Christmas Parade.
Sitting along the eastern edge of L.A. County, the Pomona Valley continues to rise.
Home to Route 66, Claremont Colleges, L.A. County Fairgrounds, La Verne Mansion, and historic Old Town San Dimas, the Pomona Valley is a growing region that is in need of better connectivity.
On top of many transportation improvements, Measure M would bring $3.6 million in local return every year to the Pomona Valley to improve local infrastructure including streets, sidewalks, and bike lanes.
These investments would also supplement the proposed Gold Line extension which will connect Downtown Los Angeles with Claremont.
We spoke with John Trendler of the Pomona Valley Bicycle Coalition, a local chapter of LACBC, to describe the area's current landscape and how Measure M can help #MakeLACounty connected.Read more

Measure M will bring much needed traffic and infrastructure improvements across the county to make the region more connected.
With the election one week away, Los Angeles City Mayor and Metro First Vice Chair Eric Garcetti is enthusiastically drumming up more support for this county measure in the final days.
While hitting the ground to get out the vote at the North Hollywood Metro Red Line Station, the Mayor was also in the Halloween spirit as he passed out out candy. Needless to say, many people were taken by surprise when they looked up to see who was making the offering.
LACBC staffers and many of our great San Fernando Valley volunteers also showed up to join the effort while having fun and spreading the word.Read more
At Sunday's CicLAvia - Heart of Los Angeles, LACBC set up a booth at the MacArthur Park hub where we talked to people from all over L.A. County (and beyond). A lot of folks expressed their enthusiasm at the ways in which they have seen improvements in biking in their areas and some expressed how they would like to see more.
Measure M, also known as the Los Angeles County Transportation Plan, has the possibility to #makeLACounty more bikeable, more livable, and more connected. CicLAvia goers shared why they planned to #VoteYesOnM on November 8th and how Measure M can transform L.A. County. See some of the responses below.Read more

As you know, LACBC has endorsed Measure M in the November 8th election because Measure M will make L.A. County more bikeable, connected, and livable. We join a broad group of supporters that includes both partner organizations that we have been working with for years and organizations and groups that we are excited to work with for the first time. While Measure M may be referred to as “The Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan,” its benefits can be felt beyond transportation in the ways it will affect age-friendly communities, health, education, jobs, the economy, the environment, and more.
We’ve rounded up a few endorsements from organizations that are urging you to #VoteYesOnM on November 8th.Read more
On November 8th, L.A. County residents will vote on Measure M, which will provide approximately $120 billion for transportation projects, including $4 billion for walking and biking, over the next 40 years. This regional measure covers all of L.A. County, and its versatility can be demonstrated in the Santa Clarita Valley, where relief is needed for the region's specific transit needs.
You can link the Santa Clarita Valley's rapid growth directly with America's love affair with the car stemming a network of wide, high-speed streets. As a result, this has created obstacles for commuters traveling distances both near and far.
The Measure M investments coming to the Santa Clarita Valley will not only help relieve traffic, but also build better neighborhoods supporting improved bike and pedestrian infrastructure.
Nina Moskol is the Chair of the Santa Clarita Valley Bicycle Coalition, a local LACBC chapter and knows area's needs. We asked Nina to describe the Santa Clarita Valley's current landscape and how Measure M can help #MakeLACounty connected.Read more
Off the Chain with Tamika: Measure M Will #MakeLACounty
Hey LACBC Fam,
It’s September. Fall is starting, students are back in school, and the election season is in full swing. At LACBC we’re in campaign mode and on Tuesday we launched our #makeLACounty Measure M campaign. We’re excited to inform and educate you on Measure M and how it will #makeLACounty more bikeable, livable, and connected. We helped Mayor Eric Garcetti kick off the Measure M campaign two weeks ago with many of our partners.
We’re going all in on Measure M because for the first time it gives LA County a chance to have dedicated and sustained funding for people who walk and bike--over $4 billion worth of investment.
Measure M Passes! (November 8, 2016)
Together, we’ve done it! We’ve helped pass Measure M and secured a sustained funding source for walking and bicycling projects throughout Los Angeles County.
The Measure M campaign has shown us that a strong and diverse coalition of groups can come together and rally behind something that affects us all. Transportation brought together organizations with a variety of core missions that include public health, expanding business, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and of course, bike issues. On top of that, Measure M’s passage demonstrates L.A. County residents’ desire to create real transportation options.
While we celebrate the success of our campaign to #MakeLACounty bikeable, livable, and connected, we’re building on that momentum and already planning the next steps needed to ensure our tax dollars are spent on projects that matter to us. Through Measure M’s local return, cities receive money to spend on transportation projects. At LACBC, we’re targeting that at least 10% of that local-return be spent on projects to improve walking and bicycling.
It is crucial for you, our supporters, to be involved in working with your city council on this set-aside for active transportation. Please stay tuned to our emails as we get this process started. Sign up to be a member and join our continued efforts to #MakeLACounty a healthy, safe, and fun place to bike. Thank you for your support.
