The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) is a membership-based nonprofit organization that works to make all communities in LA County healthy, safe, and fun places to ride a bike through advocacy, education, and outreach.
Founded in 1998 by bicycle advocates Joe Linton and Ron Milam, LACBC brings together the diverse bicycling community in a united mission to improve the bicycling environment and quality of life for the entire region.
Despite Los Angeles’ reputation as a car-centric region, LACBC has emerged as one of the most innovative and wide-reaching bicycle advocacy nonprofits in the country. LACBC has played a major role in the growing cycling movement here in L.A. Our vision is to improve the built environment in Los Angeles, so that all cyclists—low-income, commuter, recreational, families, and women—can safely navigate L.A. County streets. Through the help of our strong volunteer network, LACBC accomplishes this vision in our campaigns to increase bicycle infrastructure throughout the 88 cities in the county.
The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition builds a better, more bike-able Los Angeles by bringing diverse communities together to improve the bicycling environment and quality of life for the whole county.
