Civic Bicycle Commuting (CiBiC) Presents: Bike Days!

What's stopping you from commuting by bike? Fear of riding alone? Lack of bike lanes? Not sure about the rules of the road? We want you to feel comfortable leaving your car behind more often and opting for the healthier, more eco-friendly ride to work by bike.

Introducing part 1 of 5 of our Civic Bicycle Commuting educational series in partnership with UCLA sponsored by the National Science Foundation's Civic Innovation Challenge Grant. Our goal is to get you confident enough to commute by bike on a regular basis.

Starting this Saturday, December 4, learn the technical skills to maintain your bike as well as rules of the road and even how to mentally prepare for interacting with LA streets!

The classes build on each other, though there will be plenty to take away if you're not able to attend every single one. RSVP by emailing info@la-bike.org
