Ride On!: South L.A. Advocate Looks to Set Up Bicycle Co-op in Leimert Park

the project

We aim to establish Ride On! as a bicycle Co-Op in the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles. Ride On will be the first co-op of its kind in South-West Los Angeles. A goal of the co-op is to help community members learn how to effectively fix their own bikes and become self-sufficient cyclists. The monies raised will afford us the opportunity to purchase the necessary tools and supplies to conduct bike clinics and secure a space for the co-op.

the steps

Once the money is in hand, we will purchase the necessary tools and equipment needed to conduct bike clinics and repairs.

operate as a pop up shop in Leimert Park Plaza
Outreach to local schools

why we're doing it

Leimert Park Village is a community that is home to several bike groups. However, the current infrastructure doesn't reflect that. In addition to the infrastructure problem, there are no local bike shops or bike co-ops in the imediate area. Ride On! will change that. Ride On! will cater to tthe local bike culture and promote bike safety and equity as part of our business model. We aim to provide expert advice and competitive prices. Because there are no co-ops within an eight mile radius of the Leimert Park area, Ride On! has a strong platform for growth.
