Purpose

We are a bicycle collective that promotes and supports cycling as a sustainable, healthy, and fun method of transportation in the San Fernando Valley. We put on community bike rides, events, and mobile DIY bike repair clinics to teach essential skills like bicycle maintenance and how to ride safely with traffic. We work to make bicycling more accessible and safe, and to create a supportive and empowered cycling community.

At our mobile bike clinics our goal is to support individuals in fixing their own bike – whether they’ve done that before or not. We help people figure out what the problem is and walk them through the process of fixing it so that they leave not only with a working bike but also with new knowledge and skills.

Our rides focus on showing people calm, safe routes to ride in the valley. We provide a buffered experience, with ride leaders demonstrating how to signal to traffic and supporting the group through intersections. We aim to help people feel supported and comfortable riding around whether it is their first ride or whether they are a regular bike commuter, so that they can leave with the knowledge and confidence they need to ride on their own as well. We also connect with local businesses and organizations so riders can explore new parts of the valley and sample local cuisines, as well as to help grow a bicycle-friendly local business network. Finally we often incorporate other healthy practices in our rides and events as well, such as in our weekly YoCycle ride which included a bike ride and a yoga session.
