Bicycle Donations

The South Bay Bicycle Coalition receives many donations, and we would like to show our patrons where their money goes. 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. If you would like to donate and help us carry out our programs, please donate using the link below. Any amount will be appreciated.

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.

May 3: Bike To School Day For Manhattan Beach Middle School

We’re excited to work closely with Manhattan Beach Middle School, MBFD and MBPD for their 1st official Bike To School Day!

On May 3, all Manhattan Beach Middle School students are encouraged to Bike To School.

There will be a Biking School Bus going to school that day:

  • designated meetup spots where MBPD / MBFD will be helping to gather kids
  • meetup time will be 8:00 am and everyone will bike to school together at 8:15am
  • each “biking school bus” will have an assigned officer
  • please review the suggested bike route as reviewed by our Traffic Engineer 

Please make sure your kid is REGISTERED by April 28 so we can assign you a meetup spot

All students who bike to school this day will get:

  • Bike Safety class – May 1 during lunch time 12:45pm
  • Bike Safety Welcome table
    • answer trivia questions, learn to check tires
    • photo booth with street safety props
    • get prizes (hats / sunglasses etc.)
  • Join the raffle for a chance to win a new bike!

If your children are already riding their bikes to school, kudos to you and your children! Consider inviting other families who are not to join you on May 3rd ! If your children are not riding their bike to school, this is an opportunity to give it a try!

Review our bike safety tips document, and get your bikes and helmets tuned and ready to go! In addition to the health benefits associated with riding a bike, numerous studies show that kids who exercise before school starts are more focused and perform better in the classroom!
