It’s that time of year again!
The city of Culver City is conducting its annual bike count. This is our opportunity to find out how much progress we have made. The information gathered in the count is invaluable for pursuing future grant opportunities. So if you want our city to become more bike friendly with more bike lanes, cycle tracks or even an improved Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan, we need your help NOW . The dates are Sat. May 16th Noon to 2pm and Tues. May 19 From 7-9 am and 4-6pm. The sign up form is here:
Even if you can’t help with the count, please offer suggestions of intersections where it would be good to conduct the count. You can do that on the form as well. Please also pass this on to any other interested parties that can help.
Join us as we ring in the season with style, spreading the warmth of the holidays face-to-face and bike-to-bike! Come party with us as we rock and ROLL the holiday season!

Join the Culver City Walk & Rollers for a monthly Family Bike Ride!
As part of the Culver City Safe Routes to School Program, we’re hosting free monthly bike rides through the streets of Culver City. Each ride starts from a new location and explores various neighborhoods. The goal is to help families become familiar with their community and especially how to connect with Culver City schools.
As part of the Safe Routs to School Program, we want to encourage families to bike and walk to school more often, safely and responsibly. This helps reduce traffic and congestion around the schools, while also helping students gain a little more activity. Biking in a group is a great way to explore neighborhoods and become familiar with various routes and destinations.
Upcoming Rides (all rides meet at 10:00 and roll at 10:15)
- Saturday, July 5: TBD
- Sunday, August 24: Ride with us to Fiesta la Ballona. Meet at El Marino Language School
- Saturday, September 6: Meet at La Ballona Elementary
- Sunday, October 5: CicLAvia Feeder Ride. Meet at Farragut Elementary and ride with us to the Expo Line
- Saturday, November 1. Meet at El Rincon
All rides are lead by experience cycling instructors

Helmets are required for all riders.
