South Los Angeles community-based initiative, T.R.U.S.T. South LA, teaches safe bike riding and repairs with the free Bike Rodeo! event
T.R.U.S.T. South LA is a community-based initiative that aims to stabilize the neighborhoods of South Los Angeles, where increased property values and rents have pushed out many long-term residents as well as advocate for equitable transportation infrastructure and access. As part of the organization’s goals of creating a sustainable and healthier South LA, T.R.U.S.T. South LA has organized a unique event – Bike Rodeo! where it aims to teach community members how to ride a bike safely and share neighborhood resources in a fun and inclusive environment.
Over the years, South LA has become synonymous with bikes as people of all age groups embrace the riding culture that makes it easy and affordable to move from one location to another without polluting the environment. However, it is not enough simply to know how to ride bikes. People also need to be intimated on how to ride safely and take care of their bikes. T.R.U.S.T. South LA is, therefore, doing the needful by teaching people how to ride and repair bikes safely in a fun environment.
Scheduled to take place on the 8th of September, the free Bike Rodeo is designed for people of all ages, with fun and exciting activities in place to make learning stress free. Some of the fun activities at the event include crafts, bike rides, bike raffle, children’s activities, music, and lots of foods and drinks.
The Bike Rodeo will take place on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (3651 S Vermont Ave, LA, CA 90007) at 11:00 AM.
More information about the Bike Rodeo and other events by T.R.U.S.T. South LA can be found on the website. T.R.U.S.T. South LA is also available across different social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
