|With such a high level of traffic, few bike-friendly streets, and an emphasis on freeways and cars, owning a bicycle in Los Angeles can be rather difficult. How does one get to their destination safely? What if you're a new rider? What about simply keeping your bicycle properly maintained? Here is where Cicle comes inóan organization which promotes sustainable transportation through cycling while offering advice and education to the general Los Angeles public on their alternative transportation methods. |
Cicle, or Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange, hosts events, projects, and projects throughout the year for the public to participate in. Cicle offers membership to all at separate levels, each level named after a part of any standard bicycle, ranging from the wheels to the frame to even the basket in front. Each level of membership offers varying perks, some useful, like copies of signed literature, others purely fun, like a set of stickers.
Most useful to the already-proficient cyclist may be Cicle's list of Bike Routes in L.A., spanning eight different areas of Los Angeles. Cicle even offers guides on how to begin riding if you're an adult and never had the experience of owning your own bicycle as a child. With so many programs, guides, tips, and literature, Cicle is a cyclist's dream come true for understanding the city of Los Angeles and connecting with other cyclists in a safe, educated and experienced manner.
