Getting to know your community is as easy as riding a bike.
The Southbay Cruisers Community Bicycle Group is all about cruisin' the beach cities of Los Angeles,CA. (Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, and Torrance) We use community bike rides to get to know the people in our neighborhood, get some exercise, & have some fun too. We ride through streets at an easy to moderate pace through mostly flat terrain as we view ocean scenery and listen to music from our bike stereos. We cover about 9 - 10 miles in one night to accomodate beginners. Our rides are a moving, alcohol & drug free, party. We host different themed nights.
WE ARE NOT A "PUB CRAWL" OR A "BOOZE CRUISE". PLEASE DO NOT COME TO OUR RIDE WITH A SIX PACK HOPING TO GET DRUNK WHILE RIDING YOUR BIKE. WE DON'T DO THAT.
WHO SHOULD JOIN:
Anyone who can respect the communities that we ride through. If you are under 16 years of age, please bring a parent or guardian. See www.southbaycruisers.com for details. Also,you don't need a stereo on your bike to join us, any type of bicycle with a headlight will do. RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
RULES OF SOUTHBAY CRUISERS RIDES:
We are fun chilled out community ride when people come and obey these rules:
*No alcohol or drug consumption on our rides.
*No littering or other illegal behavior.
*We take the RIGHT Lane so that cars can pass us on the left lane. We don't cork lanes...really for most of our rides there is no need to do that.
*Come prepared with a bicycle in good working order - with a white bicycle headlight, a rear red reflector, reflectors on your wheels, and a white reflector on the front of your bike if you are riding with us at night. California State Law requires this. (You can purchase a light at one of our rides if you want.)
*If under 18 years of age you must wear a helmet. It’s the law.
*If under 16 years of age you must bring a parent or guardian.
*Help your Southbay Cruisers out along the way. We don’t leave anyone behind, especially if they get hurt along the way or have a problem with their bikes. We all look out for each other. This ride is as much about community building as it is about riding your bike.
*No Attitudes...No exceptions
*RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK-We are not a touring company, nor do we have any special insurance or permits. We are just a group of people who rides the Southbay. We map out courses that minimize contact with automobiles and we all look out for each other on our rides, but that being said, we cannot guarantee anyone's safety.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
