Los Angeles Bicycle Academy

 

Proudly supporting difference with the youth of the greater Los Angeles area, who use bikes as a vessel for learning real-life skills. 

 


The Los Angeles Bicycle Academy (LABA) is a black-founded nonprofit organization with a mission to empower, educate and develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills in youth between the ages of 8-18 through its youth cycling team and bicycle education program. It strongly believes that the sport of cycling can change the trajectory of young peoples’ lives. 

 

More than winning bike races, LABA believe that the purpose of competitive sports is to develop good people. They work with youth from underserved communities where opportunity, access, equity, and exposure within the sport of cycling is extremely limited.
