East Side Riders Bike Club gives children in Watts an alternative to gangs and drugs by hosting COVID-safe group bike rides, purchasing helmets and used bikes for children living in poverty, teaching bicycle safety and repair, and working with government and community leaders to create safe bike travel lanes. We practice community service, which helps children build their confidence and self esteem while building a sense of community. During COVID-19 we've been feeding hungry families and community cleanups in addition to our group rides.

The Urban Cycling Collective is a project that aims to increase urban cycling ridership in South LA through bike/trike & equipment giveaways, bike safety training, marshaling rides, and establishing new bicycle clubs in surrounding neighborhoods. Based in Watts, ESRBC has been cultivating bike culture and steering youth & their families away from drugs and gang activity for over 10+ years. We intend to scale our program in Watts in addition to 4 communities surrounding our neighborhoods: Compton, Lynwood, Florence-Firestone, and Willowbrook.
