Bike To School Day 2018

We had another successful Bike To School Day in Manhattan Beach Middle School last May. We had 110 kids riding their bicycle to and from school with the guidance of awesome volunteers. South Bay Bicycle Coalition together with Leadership Manhattan Beach and Beach Cities Health District put out swag for the kids who rode their bikes to school. There were stickers, sunglasses, cookies, bike lights and last but not least, a new Bike Fix It Station added right next to all the bike corrals. Thanks to LMB, kids can now inflate a tire or adjust their brakes before heading home. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who helped bring kids to school and safely back home. And thank you to the parents who let their children participate in our Bike To School Day! And of course, we'd like to give a shoutout to Manhattan Beach Middle School's Principal, Kim, who was so hands on with the event! We can't wait for...

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...
