Many cities, organizations, and advocates in L.A. County are promoting and supporting bicycling as an effective response to the county’s challenges. A number of bicycle-friendly initiatives have been started, and progress can be seen in communities throughout the county. This guide was created to reinforce that progress and help more communities move toward bicycle-friendliness. It was written for anyone who wants to bring the benefits of bicycle-friendliness to his or her community – that is, for anyone who wants to use bicycling as a tool to make the built environment more people-focused, create conditions that support access to daily physical activity, and develop a more sustainable, livable, and healthy community. The guide details five bicycle-friendly initiatives implemented by community-based organizations working with cities. These are described on the next page. The guide’s authors are the individuals who led and organized the initiatives.
