Long Beach offers an exciting variety of bike facilities–from 24/7 secure, bicycle parking to dedicated bike lanes and trails. Learn more about how you can incorporate them into your rides.

With the debut of the landmark Shoreline Pedestrian Bike Path in 1988 and the first bicycle-transit center in the U.S. in 1996, Long Beach has long been a pioneer in creating a bike-friendly city.

City leaders and advocates have made great strides in continuing to secure substantial state and federal grant funding to build the infrastructure and support safe and convenient facilities for all types of riders. For its efforts, Long Beach has received the Silver designation as a Bicycle-Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.

Since 2012, efforts to promote safe bicycling have resulted in tripling of the number of people who bike and walk to work. At the same time, Long Beach has enjoyed a 50% increase in overall bike ridership. And with such positive attention from urban planners, legislators, public health and the media, Long Beach is a progressive model for other communities.
