Air Quality Update

Air quality throughout LA is good to moderate in most areas, with some notable exceptions – the areas of Pico Rivera/Santa Fe Springs, Long Beach and Central LA are forecasted to have unhealthy levels of fine particle pollutants.

This might be due to ash blowing in from the Bobcat Fire, which as of 4 days ago was reported to be 95% contained. It may also be from the El Dorado Fire that is still burning in the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Stay up to date on pollutant levels in your area by entering your zip code in the Air Quality Index.

Upcoming Events & Activities

LACBC Rememberance Ride

We are launching a series of monthly self-guided rides that focus on a different theme every month. For October, we are proud to present to you the Remembrance Ride.

This 22.6 mile ride visits four historic LA cemeteries and two landmarks that pay homage to those that have called this land home throughout the centuries. With this ride, we’d like to invite you to take some time to reflect on Life & Death, as we welcome the slowness of winter and approach a season when many cultures remember those who have passed on.

If you’re looking for a long bike ride with some LA history sprinkled in, or an opportunity to do something special for someone you want to honor this season, this ride may be for you.

You can follow our Ride With GPS route, check out the write-up that includes the cue-sheet, photos and info on each stop, or follow along through the izi.Travel app.
