Climate Ride: Team LACBC Training Ride #1

Screen Shot 2017-01-13 at 11.38.22 PM

 

2017 has arrived and Team LACBC is beginning its Climate Ride training! This will be the first official Team LACBC Training ride where they’ll roll parts of Pasadena. You don’t want to miss this one. So, come on out and roll with Team LACBC as they sets their sights on June.

When: 1/15/17
Where: Union Station
Meet: 8:30am
Roll: 9:00am
Adv/Challenge Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18356379
Beg/Intermediate Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18356376

Climate ride is a rain or shine event and the training rides will mimic that, with caution of course.

The route you choose depends on what shape you’re in and how strong you are on the bike you’re riding. We highly recommend a Road Bike, Fixed (if you’re a strong rider), Hybrid (beginner/intermediate). All training rides are no drop rides. (meaning, unless your bike completely falls apart, we will not leave you).

At the first training ride they’ll have a list items for you to consider riding with at all times.

For now, make sure you have the following:
Extra tube that fits your tire, tire lever, patch kit, water bottle cage, water bottle, helmet.

MEASURES WE SUPPORT OR OPPOSE

LOCAL

Measure GSH is a half-cent sales tax measure – funded largely by tourists – that will provide new revenues to the City of Santa Monica. Measure GS says those new funds should be used for our local public schools and affordable housing programs – two pillars of our community that are woefully under-funded. New funds will be locally controlled and cannot be taken away by the State. Endorsements and more HERE

  • YES on V

For 87 years Santa Monica College has been the premier Community College in California. SMC is number one in transfers to the University of California and provides over 100 affordable fields of study and job-training programs.
50% of Santa Monica High School students attend SMC. SMC serves 1,000 veterans each year.
