Family Rides

CC SRTS Family RidesJoin 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)

  1. Saturday, July 5: TBD
  2. Sunday, August 24: Ride with us to Fiesta la Ballona. Meet at El Marino Language School
  3. Saturday, September 6: Meet at La Ballona Elementary
  4. Sunday, October 5: CicLAvia Feeder Ride. Meet at Farragut Elementary and ride with us to the Expo Line
  5. Saturday, November 1. Meet at El Rincon

All rides are lead by experience cycling instructors 

Rides meet at 10:00 a.m. are 2-3 miles in distance and last about 2 hours. 

Helmets are required for all riders.

AB 321 Community Meeting

  • Saturday, December 7
  • 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
  • Culver Hotel
  • CCBC Planning Meeting immediately follows at 5:00 p.m.

AB 321 is a state law that allows cities to more easily reduce the speed limit in school zones. Join the CCBC for a discussion on implementing an AB 321 pilot program in Culver City near Linwood E. Howe Elementary School.

We all want safer streets for walkers and bicyclists of all ages. Reducing motor vehicle speeds in school zones to be compatible with high volumes of children walking and biking will reduce traffic incidents and encourage more children to bike and walk to school. This in turn reduces traffic and pollution in our community, creating healthier, more livable neighborhoods.

Join the conversation and learn how a pilot program in Culver City can benefit the whole community:

  • Hear the pros and cons of AB 321 and what it takes to make for successful implementation
  • Updates on Culver City’s Safe Routes to School activities
  • Bicycle safety best practices in and around Culver City
