Changing the Mechanics: How Bikes are Transforming the Way LA Moves

Join us on September 19th to map the advancement of bikes as a viable mode of transportation for an equitable LA. Admission is free; however, an RSVP is required.

Smog. Traffic. #carmageddon. Gas prices and flat tires from potholes. Alongside the Hollywood sign, these symbols have come to characterize “LA.” However, an old-school machine is emerging as a new icon on the scene to transform this picture:

Bikes.

On Wednesday, September 19th, CenterScene Public Programs invites you to meet a panel of advocates working to carve out a space in LA’s landscape for this low-cost and environmentally-friendly alternative on our roads. Hear how their work is facilitating economic development, alleviating environmental issues, and addressing transportation for low-income communities, as well as making bicycle transit a safe, viable and attractive alternative for car-dependent Angelenos.

Before the program, join us in our Courtyard for a Bike Workshop.

Please email rsvpchc@calendow.org with any questions.
