Your help is needed once more! But you must be thinking, don't LACBC and L.A. Walks do counts every other year?!
Our official 2013 counts were an enormous undertaking, and we thank our hundreds of volunteer for their help! The results are available in our report that has reached many elected officials and guide the way we advocate for more bike improvements.
This year we are at it again. We have a team of interns looking at specific corridors to understand the needs of those travelling by bike and on foot. We hope to conduct bike and pedestrian counts for the following streets and have reports/recommendations by the end of the year.
- Anaheim (San Pedro)
- Broadway (Chinatown)
- Central (Little Tokyo/South LA)
- Hollywood (Hollywood)
- Westwood (Westwood Village)
- Virgil (East Hollywood/Koreatown)
Doing these bike counts is a massive undertaking and we hope that you can participate this year as well. Can we count on you next month?
Sign up here using Volunteer Spot. These are the count shifts you will be selecting from:
- Tuesday, October 7th; 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. & 4:00 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- Saturday, October 11th; 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Tuesday, October 14th; 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. & 4:00 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- Saturday, October 18th; 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All volunteers (except for those who attended a training for last year's bike and pedestrian count) must also attend a mandatory training on Monday, October 6th at 6 p.m.
Those who participate will be entered into a drawing to win River Ride jerseys and other cool prizes!

The exclusive 1st Annual El Grande Fondo de Los Angeles Crest travels through the classic high country of the San Gabriel Mountains along scenic Angeles Crest Highway and up to historic Mt. Wilson. This super-sweet event, a partnership between LACBC and National Forest Foundation, is one you will want to say, “I was there for the first one!"
This epic ride travels through the unbelievable vistas of the Angeles Forest. Starting with a climb up secluded Big Tujunga Canyon, it then traverses Angeles Crest Highway. The ride includes:
- a full century (100 miles)
- a metric century (62 miles)
- 30 mile route
The full century will travel under majestic pines for a summit finish at Islip Saddle and a picturesque vista of the Antelope Valley. The full century and the metric century will include a final ascent to Mount Wilson and a sneak peak of the incredible panorama of Los Angeles before coasting back to Crescenta Valley Park. The 30 mile route will wind up clear creek canyon for a scenic summit finish and a wonderful descent to Crescenta Valley Park.
This ride benefits the National Forest Foundation and Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition.
