Super Excited to Announce Our Virtual Bike Month Event
SOON!

We can’t promise going for a bike ride will solve every concern, but we do know that bicycling can help all of us maintain our physical and mental health. Even short rides have massive benefits, including reducing stress and anxiety, and improving happiness, mental focus, and sleep. Whether you are an essential worker biking to get to work, looking for a fun activity with the family, or just need some exercise or some time alone, here’s some are some ideas to help you get started.

May is National Bike Month, promoted by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.

Free Screening Paris to Pittsburgh

May 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

THE CLIMATE FOR CHANGE IS NOW!

From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. 

And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act.

“Paris to Pittsburgh shines a light on the many forgotten communities and people who have been affected by climate change in our country, as well as solutions for how we can fight back and reduce our carbon footprint. I’m proud to be part of this poignant and powerful documentary, and admire the pro-active approach Bloomberg Philanthropies has taken with this project and this issue; we need meaningful change.”– Rachel Brosnahan

When: Wednesday, May 29th, 7:00 pm*
Where: Aero Theater, 1328 Montana Ave. Santa Monica
