TAKING A RIDE THROUGH CAMP PENDLETON??

The Marines have changed the rules regarding Base Access for cyclists. Read more about it here and here.  


FOUGHT THE LAW...AND THE LAW WON?? 

(i.e. been ticketed lately on your bicycle?)

BCCC members (and any cyclist) can resolve the ticket by completing a Bicycle Safety Class.  Successful completion of the class will allow the court to dismiss the ticket. The class is run by the South Bay Bicycle Coalition, and is taught by LCI-rated BCCC members   The next class is July 29 from 2-5 PM at BCHD, 514 N Prospect Ave, Redondo Beach 90277.  There will be another class in mid August.  Cost of the class is $50. Your ticket will run about $300. Do the math.
