Bike Long Beach is a program of the Long Beach Public Works Department.

Long Beach has a small but powerful Bike and Pedestrian Team – within the City – and large cadre of talented civic and business leaders who have spearheaded and championed the City’s effort to become the “Most Bicycle Friendly City in the US.”

The City Staff

Allan Crawford, the bicycle coordinator, helps coordinate the  programs for Bike Long Beach and gets the word out about the many services and programs.

Steve Tweed is the go to person for the City’s Infrastructure projects.  He is responsible for developing and overseeing all of the infrastructure (i.e., bike lanes, bike boulevards, paths, ped scape, etc.) contracts and provides guidance and direction for our contractors and our programs available to residents of and visitors to the city.

Nancy Villasenor works on helping set the direction for the program, developing grants, working with community outreach and deals with much of the seemingly endless paperwork.

We also have a talented staff of engineers and support personnel who work with the bike and ped team on a day-to-day basis not only doing project design, but also putting in the bike racks, painting the bike lanes and helping with community outreach.

The program reports to Dave Roseman, the City’s Chief Traffic Engineer, who is one of the most out-of-the-box traffic engineers you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.

Finally,Teresa Dennis. Our administrative assistant keeps the entire team headed down the straight and narrow.

In addition to this group, we are fortunate to have a great working relationship with our Planning Group, our Health Department and Parks and Rec: all of whom play a vital role in helping to move Long Beach toward being the most bicycle friendly city in the US.

Our Community

The city also has a very talented group of civic and business leaders who are great partners.  These include our Mayor and City Council, our Business Districts (be sure to check out our Bike Saturday’s program), our bike shops and other bike and active living related businesses as well as our advocacy groups.  There are so many people who could be mentioned that we would not know where to start.Let us just say to all of you who have been, and continue to be so helpful in moving Long Beach forward (you know who you are) a very big thanks to all of you!!!!

We would like to serve you better, so please report a problem, contact us for more information or submit a bicycle-related event to our calendar.

Bike for yourself. Bike for the environment. Bike Long Beach.
