Honoring our Bicycle Hero Julian Katz

Earlier this week the City Council of Hermosa Beach passed a resolution to dedicate the shared roadway “sharrow lane” from Herondo Street to 24th street as the “Julian Katz Bike Route” We thank everyone who came out to express their joy and kind words. Additionally, Rabbi Gila Katz, Julian's wife, was in attendance to accept certificates from the offices of Senator Ben Allen and Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi. For those who didn’t know Julian, Julian was a true gentleman with great passion for getting people out of their vehicles and onto the road with their bicycles. Julian had ridden his bike around the South Bay for more than 25 years. He pushed for a healthier and safer South Bay. He was a kind soul who could disagree with you without being disagreeable. At yesterday's City Council meeting we were able to witness the impact that Julian has left on us and our South Bay community. Julians civic duty carries on with all...

How to check bike helmet fitting

First, place the helmet on your head making sure it is level. If there is a dial in the rear, adjust it so that the helmet is secure and stays on without buckling the chin strap. Next, buckle the chin strap so that it is not too tight nor too loose. Make sure the side straps are in the right position by making two "V" shapes with your pointer and middle fingers and place them around your ears. Your fingers should be touching the side straps on either side of your ear. Adjust the side straps so that the bottom of the "V" is just under your ears. Last, make sure the helmet is in the right position. There should be a two fingers length of space between the helmet and your eyebrows. Use this method to check positioning on the rest of the face as well. Check out the full video below for a demonstration of the steps! https://youtu.be/rS7wDGEPrX4  ...

Honoring Our Beloved Bike Hero Julian Katz

We are deeply saddened with the passing of a beautiful soul. Julian Katz was a South Bay Bike Coalition Board member and an inspiration to all of us. He is the only 88 year old we know who responds to texts, emails and doodle polls. Until recently, he rode his bike everywhere he went. Julian was always pushing for things to be better; to add more bike lanes, give bikes to underprivileged kids, setup a bike swap program etc. He knew that in order for things to improve, we have to embrace change. That change is a good thing! Make A Contribution In Julian's Honor There was nothing Julian loved more than teaching kids to ride bikes for the first time and giving bikes to kids who could not afford one. In his memory, we are creating a fund to make sure the kids he loved especially the ones from 186th Elementary School in Gardena are taught bike safety skills and given new bikes...
