Speak Up To get 2 New Bikeways in Manhattan Beach

2013 was another banner year for the SBBC. We partnered with local cities and police to distribute educational packets and implemented our first grade school targeted safe cycling course. We helped over 10,000 people bike to events like Fiesta Hermosa instead of drive with our bike valet.

2014 is going to be even bigger!  We have a huge opportunity lined up to kick it off. On Jan 7 in Manhattan Beach, council will be deciding on, not 1, but 2 new bikeways– (1) a bikelane along Rosecrans as well as(2) sharrows through Manhattan Ave downtown. As we have learned repeatedly over the past few years, the only way to get new bikeways implemented is to show up and speak our minds about safer bike facilities to those in power.

There are 2 ways to help get this passed in our city:

1. Speak In Front of City Council with Us!

January 7 @ 6:30pm
Manhattan Beach City Hall

2. Help Our Email Brigade

please send an email ASAP about your support of the 2 new bikeways CityCouncil@citymb.info

We are grateful for ALL your support.  Here’s to a more bike-able South Bay in 2014!
