  • Creating safe, connected, and easy to navigate bike routes;

  • Promoting bike share opportunities throughout the city;
  • Encouraging the community, through education, to create a culture where cyclists and motorists interact safely;
  • Implementing fun and healthy bicycle programs.
Long Beach Bicycle Master Plan

The City of Long Beach and its residents developed a Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) in 2000 to guide the development and maintenance of bicycle friendly roads and bikeways, support facilities and other programs for Long Beach through the year 2020.

The City is currently working on a Bicycle Master Plan update. Throughout January, February, and March of 2011, the City hosted a series of community workshops in each of the City’s nine Council Districts. Saturday workshops included bike rides led by the City’s mobility coordinator prior to workshops, free bike valet (secure bike parking), and bike safety rodeos for the kids.

The BMP serves as a planning document that is used to guide future improvements to the City of Long Beach bicycle network, so that Long Beach can become a model community for bicycling. Moreover, it creates the foundation for bicycle friendly roads and bikeways which will serve commuter and recreational riders. The overarching goal of the BMP is to increase bicycle use from 1% to 5% by the year 2020.

The Bicycle Master Plan is a living policy document, which is currently in the process of being updated to include new projects and new goals, such as:

• New proposed bike lanes, bike boulevards, and dedicated bike lanes;
• Proposed bike facilities such as shower/changing stations and bike share locations at schools,
parks, transit stations and park and ride locations;
• Ideas for proposed signage and bike racks.
