Self-Guided Ride for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week: 4 miles in Northeast LA

NEDA’s National Eating Disorders Awareness Week takes place this year from February 22-28 and their theme is “Every Body To Have A Seat At The Table.” Given that cycling, like many fitness pursuits, can foster a complicated relationship to nutrition, as well as having the potential to be exclusionary towards certain body types, this is an opportunity to raise awareness about these issues. We’ve created a self-guided ride that is short but challenging and centered around a variety of locations that focus on nutrition, nature, positivity, and growth. Click here for more information on National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

Fat Tire Presents: Incredible Women Getting It Done

LACBC is proud to partner with Fat Tire to bring you a ride featuring stories in honor of Women’s History Month.

This 18 mile ride starts in Downtown Long Beach and takes you north all the way to California Heights then to the Long Beach Airport before heading back through Signal Hill. Not totally flat but not a quad blaster by any means, this ride will take you on a tour of Long Beach that honors and remembers the work women have done to make this world a more incredible place. Check it out on the free izi.Travel app.

You can see all the rides in our izi.Travel profile here. Check out the rest of the rides we’ve created so far on our website!
