About 60 cyclists gathered in NoHo Gallery to celebrate cycling in LA and raise funds for the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition, ushering out Earth Month in style.

It was the perfect mixture of art, music, and cyclists as activists from around the city mingled while taking in the colors and sounds of a party in North Hollywood. If you couldn’t make last night’s fund raiser, there’s plenty of ways to help out LACBC including becoming a member or signing up for next month’s fabulous LA River Ride.

Some images from last night’s party are after the jump.

  • this was really fun!

    Wow! You’re everywhere Damien!

  • This is just what the LACBC ought to be doing – building a base of donors from the cycling public and non-governmental funds. They’ll be able to lobby and advocate without having to be constantly tied down to executing government contracts for bikeways planning, and worrying about maintaining relationships with bureaucrats.

    With a good financial base, they can start forming alliances with politicians – and then the fun will really start. They’ll be able to work around the pencil pushers.

    I hope they’ve got someone working on legislation they’d like to see in place in the next couple of years. You know, strategic political stuff that will position their allies to benefit from pro-bicycle changes.

  • Thanks for the plug Damien–and ubray–I agree. LACBC needs to and will move beyond those bureaucrats this year.
