LACBC’s Car-Free Friday
Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) has launched a new campaign called
"Car–Free Fridays" to encourage both new and experienced riders to
commit to using the bicycle as a means to commute to work and to make their
shorter trips by bike at least one Friday of the month.
The campaign is
aimed to get more people on bikes and to highlight the global and personal
benefits of riding a bicycle. To celebrate the first "Car–Free
Friday," on January 30, LACBC will host a ride, meeting at 8 a.m. at Hollywood/Western
Metro Red Line Station and will head downtown, to L.A. City Hall.
choices and transportation alternatives are a popular means of reducing
our carbon footprint, reducing air pollution, staying healthy and saving
money. Choosing to commute by bicycle, even on occasion, can have
immediate positive results on our health and on the environment.
