LACBC's E-Bike Fleet In Action
Earlier this month we had a trial run at what we hope to be one of many bike fleet rentals! We aided Public Health Advocates in their goal of conducting the City of San Fernando Safe and Active Streets Plan Bicycle Audit. Their group had the opportunity to take on several ebikes, courtesy of our partners at Himiway.
We loved helping community leaders and others see the neighborhood they live in from a bike.

These sights are documented in Curbed Los Angeles’ piece, “Mapping Los Angeles’ groundbreaking role in LGBT history.” This ride by no means captures the breadth of history or expanse of geography that LA has in terms of LGBTQ+ history and culture.
