Hello Faithful South Bay Bike Advocates! (trying to borrow some of Stan Lees hype- style),
This May is a particularly exciting month for South Bay cyclists!  May 16th – 20th is Los Angeles County’s bike to work week, Cycle Saturday is on May 14th and we’re getting ready to release a draft of our master plan and could use some volunteers to help us build support!
Watch for our announcements on the next round of community workshops featuring our master plan which will be at the end of June.
Bike-to-Work Happy Hour – May 19th
To celebrate this important bike season, SBBC is going to holding a [no host] happy hour at Rock & Brews at 143 Main Street in El Segundo on Bike to Work Day, Thursday May 19th from 5:00pm-8:00pm.  So if you’re feeling parched from pedaling to and from work that day, please stop by and get some free bike swag while you’re there!  This event will take the place of our usual monthly meeting.  RVSP here May Happy Hour Meeting @ Rock & Brews, El Segundo!
Cycle Saturday – May 14th
Public Works Commissioner Kim MacMullan is hosting the third Cycle Saturday event in Hermosa Beach on Saturday May 14th at 10:00am at Valley Park in Hermosa Beach.  Bring your kids for some free bike safety instruction from the Hermosa Beach Police Department.
Call for Volunteers – Outreach and Bike Valets
As we get closer to asking our partner cities to adopt the South Bay Bicycle Master Plan, getting public input and support is of the utmost importance.  As such, we are looking for volunteers who are interested in doing some phone/email and in-person outreach to various community groups, specifically to PTAs, HOAs and other community-based volunteer groups.  If you are involved with an organization that might be interested in learning more about making the South Bay bike-friendly, please contact us and we will be happy to meet with them.
In addition, as we and our Beach Cities Cycling Club partners offer more bike valets we’ll need all the help we can get!  So let us know if you are interested in joining us at an event on a sunny day to help us tag some bikes!
If you’re looking for an update on the plan, check out the latest presentation to the Hermosa Beach Public Works Commission here.
