Ride Westwood: West Area Community Ride

9:00 PM PST on January 26, 2013

The UCLA Bicycle Coalition is partnering with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) and the UCLA Healthy Campus Initiative to organize the West Area Community Bike Ride on February 9, 2013. The West Area Community Ride will roll along Westwood Boulevard and through surrounding neighborhoods, pointing out existing bicycle facilities and discussing some exciting future projects. The West Area Community Ride will be led by advocates and students from UCLA and the LACBC.

Registration for the West Area Community Ride will begin at 10:00AM on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at the Ackerman Bus Terminal, 308 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA, 90095. The ride will pause to meet up with participants who want to join the ride south of UCLA’s campus, at Riddick Youth Center at 11:00AM, 2634 Overland Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, 90064. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

The West Area Community Ride is a project of the LACBC’s Ride Westwood campaign. The Ride Westwood campaign educates and engages community members around the issue of bicycle safety in Westwood. Specifically, the campaign works to build public support for the proposed Westwood Boulevard bike lane, part of the 2010 Bicycle Master Plan. Safer bicycle facilities along Westwood are critical for providing access to the UCLA campus, invigorating the business district along the corridor, and encouraging a more vibrant, healthy, livable community.
