Bicycle Clubs and Crews have a huge following and fan base, It's just as big as the classic and custome car shows. There are huge events that take place every year and sometimes every month where people get to gether to show off their prized cruiser or bicycle, or sometimes they just get together and ride. For example the Cyclone Coasters ride in Long Beach which takes place on the first Sunday of every month. So it's time to show some love for your community and the bicyle culture and have some fun in the sun.

When you think bike path, you probably think you local round about the park, but have you considered the thousands of miles of bike paths connecting our nation coast to coast and border to border?
Thanks to a recent collaboration between GOOD and Gregory Hubacek, and in partnership with the great people at CLIF Bar, we can now see how dotting the landscape of America how we are all connected via interconnecting bicycle paths and lanes.
Bicycles are quickly becoming a ready transport for many commuters and for just running a few errands around town. Better designed bike routes, or repurposed traffic lanes, are providing a safer ride for all. Putting these to good use is a simple way to add some cash to your pocket and give your health a boost.
This infographic provided by GOOD shows how we are all connected as one.

One of the largest weather disasters hit the East Coast and this month leaving people stranded, but people pulled them selves together and a resurgence of bicycle commuters have hit the streets.
Not letting the storm keep them from their lives, bike commuters have been using social networking to find tips and tricks on navigating through the city. The #BikeSandy twitter posts started filling up the feeds
According to the New York Department of Transportation, the average number of cyclists a day on the East River bridges is normally 13,000. Thursday, November 1st saw that number over doubled to 30,000
Others turned their bicycles in to philanthropy mobiles, delivering food to the hungry in the city. People pulling together is what America is all about and seeing bicycles get their due for usefulness and commutability is awesome
Our thoughts are with those affected by this storm and we know you’ll be on your pedals soon!

Cooler weather doesn’t mean you have to abandon your favorite cruiser. Riding your bike can even help fight the inevitable cookies, pie, and candy the holidays bring. Why not keep the pounds at bay and get your body going with a new cycling program?
Leah Zerbe of Rodale News has a great article on how the cooler months can help your self by riding through the cooler months and “You don't have to be a pro (or wear those tight cycling shirts) to lose weight riding a bike.” Great news for cruiser riders!!
No athletic body needed! Your gear needs are simple; a helmet, pump for your tires, repair kit with multi-tool & patch kit, water bottle and cage, and front and rear lights (it’s the law in California), and some padded cycling gloves to protect your hands and fight off numbness.
If you find yourself out on a particularly chilly day, you may want to pack a jacket. Even in sunny California where we freeze below 72 Degrees!
If there’s something we can all agree on, it’s that gas prices are going up at a ridiculous rate and recently it seems like they have leveled out around 5$ a gallon. I don’t know about all of you but personally, I cant keep filling up my tank multiple times a week. So I’ve decided to start using my bike for everything local, given a few exceptions. So do yourself and your wallet a favor. It’s time to hope on your bike and put some miles on those wheels, don’t be a slave to the road and gas prices any longer.
Here at Beach Bike outlet there haven’t been to many recent events so I thought I would take the liberty to write a few fun facts for all you bicycle enthusiast out there. Well I guess we’ll start off with this one : The longest “Tandem” bike was over 20 meters long and it seated 35 people. That one is by far my personal favorite bicycle fact; I mean where would you even store something that massive. This next one is for all of you group riders out there. Did you know that you can park 15 bicycles in the same space that one car takes. Sounds to me like its time to grab everyone in your neighborhood and go for a nice relaxing cruise. This one is truly amazing, when you cycle three hours or 30 kilometers per week it halves your risk of heart disease and strokes. Finally you know I had to bring money up. Maintaining a bike annually costs twenty times less than maintaining and riding a car. Plus who wants to pay for gas when you got yourself a sweet pair of wheels that’ll take you anywhere you want to go. Thanks again for reading up on your Beach Bike Outlet latests, hopefully you learned a thing or two from me.
If you follow these tips you’ll get fewer flat tires!
If you live in Los Angeles and own a bicycle you have more likely than not experienced the terror of biking down a busy street with no bike lane. Swerving in and out of traffic while dodging potholes makes us wish that our city were more bicycling friendly. Well my fellow bicyclists, our wish has finally come true.
On March 13, 2012 the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the 2012 Bicycle Master plan. It proposes approximately 831 miles of new bikeways throughout the county. The plan places priority on bikeways that connect to transit stations, commercial centers, schools, libraries, cultural centers, parks and other important activity centers within each unincorporated area and promote bicycling to these destinations. Along with the proposed bikeways, the Plan recommends various bicycle-friendly policies and programs to promote bicycle ridership amongst users of all ages and skill sets within the County.
I think I can speak for all Los Angeles bicyclists when I say it’s about damn time! The future of biking in Los Angeles looks bright my friends.
