Fiesta Hermosa Bike Corral

Fiesta Hermosa Bike Corral

Above is a picture of the Bike Corral that the South Bay Bicycle Coalition held during Fiesta Hermosa. People came and parked their bicycles in the parking lot and had their bike tires inflated, all for free.

The event was hosted by the South Bay Bicycle Coalition, the Beach Cities Cycling Club, and the Hermosa Cyclery on September 2 – September 4 and a total of 2751 bicyclists used this free service, making this operation a complete success.

It is only with the donations that we receive from all our patrons that we are able to carry out these events. If you would to keep these events going, donate to the SBBC below and help us promote bike safety in the South Bay.

Recap of SBBC School Events

Attached is a photo of a few “Thank You” packets that the South Bay Bicycle Coalition received from multiple elementary schools. These packets were sent because of events that the SBBC held last December at 186th Street Elementary, Denker Elementary, and Halldale Elementary.

Inside these packets are tokens of appreciation from students who received bicycles and bicycle equipment from the SBBC.

We are only able to carry out these events because of the generous people that donate to the SBBC. Donate now to help keep these events going by visiting the link below.

Manhattan Beach City Council Meeting

Manhattan Beach City Council Meeting

Help the South Bay Bicycle Coalition approve a $100k bike lane plan for the city of Manhattan Beach. This plan would greatly expand the network of bike lanes in Manhattan Beach and help increase accessibility for bicyclists.

Join us on October 3rd from 6pm-8pm at the Manhattan Beach City Hall to show your support on this matter and help push this plan forward. If you plan on coming to the City Council Meeting, please send an email to giancoli_rd@yahoo.com in order to keep this event more organized.

If you are not able to attend this meeting, you can still help us by sending an email of support to CityCouncil@citymb.info. Below is a template you may use/modify and send to the city council.

Dear __________________:

We know that you will be voting to approve bike route infrastructure improvements at your September 5 meeting.  I hope to see you there.  I wanted to let you know that your efforts to make our city safer for riders is one that I personally support.  Many other cities in our area have implemented many more facilities which have gotten cars off the street and more people on bikes.  We would love to see this happen in Manhattan Beach.

We were excited when the Council approved the Bicycle Master Plan in 2011.  We are even more excited to have this Council show its character and leadership in getting it implemented.

Thank you on behalf of me, my family and our community!

Pictured above are two instances in which the SBBC donated bicycles and other equipment to underprivileged children. We believe that it is key to get the youth involved in bicycling in order to improve the bicycle culture in the South Bay.

Recap of the Guided Strand Tour by Bike

 

Recap of Guided Strand Tour by Bike

On July 12, the South Bay Bicycle Coalition held a guided tour of the strand by bike, led by long time locals Chris Miller and Jan Dennis. We had a great turnout of over 50 people, and the tour went along smoothly. Some of the stops included the Bottle Inn and the Lighthouse Cafe, both locations with a rich history. We learned about the early history of both Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach, along with a few interesting facts. If you missed this event, stayed tuned to our Facebook and website to learn about other future events hosted by the SBBC.
