We’re giving away 1,000 bikes, helmets and locks to South L.A. students

A bicycle can open up a child’s world. This year, we’re giving away 1,000 bikes, helmets and locks to 1,000 students from South Los Angeles. Wesson’s Wheels aims to spread cheer while also reminding youth of the importance of physical activity. It will be one of the largest bike giveaways in the history of our city.

We’ve worked with local schools, neighborhood councils and community partners to identify deserving young people from throughout South L.A. We’re excited to see the looks on their faces when they receive their new wheels!

We are in the process of assembling the bikes, helmets and locks, and are looking for volunteers to help with this. Below is more information for our special assembly party happening on December 2nd. Can’t make the party but still want to be involved? Email elizabeth.carlin@lacity.org for more details on how you can help out.
