"Our Health is the most important thing we possess"

AND CARS ARE KILLING US

Commuters in L.A. average 102 hours per month sitting in traffic.

Doing nothing. 

Traffic congestion is the #1 source of stress, anger and anxiety — 

75% of Americans drive to work. "Over two-thirds of ALL traffic is from local residents commuting to and from work. Nearly half of all trips are three miles or less and 28 percent are one mile or less – distances easily covered by bicycle." Yet 65 percent of trips under one mile are made by automobile.

 

The positive impact of making cities more bike-friendly

64% of all Americans are seriously overweight or obese. The average American child spends five to eight hours a day in front of a digital screen, and half the time their parents did playing outside. Integrating health-enhancing choices into transportation policy has the potential to save lives by preventing chronic diseases, reducing and preventing motor-vehicle-related injury and deaths, improving environmental health, while stimulating economic development, and ensuring access for all people.  

 

However, the lack of efficient transportation alternatives to driving and a fear of biking in heavy traffic only encouraged people to continue to drive all or most of the time.  BIKE SATURDAYS addresses these issues -- and MORE!             Source: U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

BE PART OF THE SOLUTION 

BIKE SATURDAYS consists of three parts -- here are the talking points

PART I: Saturday Ride Events

  • The SATURDAY RIDES are not races or any other form of competition

  • Purpose is to familiarizes cyclists with the local paved and off-road trail systems, trail etiquette and safety

  • Target audience are families and individuals who own bikes but rarely ride them and are part of the majority who feel it's unsafe to ride city streets. However, everyone, all abilities and age can participate.

  • A new road and mountain bike trail is designated each week.  

  • Events provide a platform for county and city planning officials, law enforcement and other agencies to get the word out about the importance of bicycle infrastructure and the many other benefits of commuting by bicycle.

  • Any city, large or small can promote a BIKE SATURDAYS ride event. 

  • Great community fundraising concept.
