The Center will also involve an innovative Social Bike Business program which will manufacture affordable transportation bicycles and equip qualifying low-income individuals with a transportation bicycle and the training to help them meet with their transportation needs. Area residents will also benefit from job training programs and additional business opportunities created by the Center.
“Bicycling is not only an environmentally friendly form of transportation but for many of our community’s residents who are transit dependent, it is also an effective and low cost means of contributing to their livelihoods,” said Council-member Ed Reyes of the First District in northeast Los Angeles when he learned about the program’s launch. “C.I.C.L.E’s social bike business project fulfills a great need in my district and I fully support their efforts.”
