About the event
Do you live or work in the City of Commerce and want to make bicycling part of your daily travel routine, but you’re not sure where to start? Do you want to be more familiar with the rules of the road while on a bike? Metro, LA County Bicycle Coalition, and People for Mobility Justice, in partnership with the City of Commerce and Climate Resolve, are hosting the Commerce Moving Forward: Rules of the Road online video class that will help you learn how to bike on city streets safely. We will teach you the rules of the road, how to plan your route, and provide tips and tricks to make bicycling for everyday travel safe and convenient. From what to wear to bicycling etiquette, we’ve got you covered!
Participants who complete a class feedback survey will be mailed a FREE pre-loaded TAP card and additional Metro-branded goodies (shipping limited to addresses in LA County).
Attendees are encouraged to participate from the comfort and safety of your own homes while we are all doing our part to practice social distancing while staying connected to one another. Once you are registered, we will be sending you information on how to join the class online.
Class size is limited. Pre-registration is required to guarantee a minimum number of participants. Register now to guarantee your spot!

Thanks to a Sustainable Transportation Equity Project (STEP) statewide grant, which is supported by the California Climate Investments program, the City of Commerce is launching the Commerce Moving Forward project. Commerce Moving Forward will introduce the first set of Class II bike lanes in the city, along with 400 shade trees, two zero-emission fixed route buses, and two zero-emission dial-a-ride shuttles. The Commerce Moving Forward project will also help prepare the community for Metro’s future Citadel rail station through development of a Transit-Oriented Development and Displacement Avoidance Plan. As part of this engagement effort, we are excited to collaborate with community partners to offer fun and engaging bike safety education opportunities to Commerce residents and workers to ensure that all community members have access to dignified, frequent, affordable transportation that serves all of their basic needs.
