IEBA in ACTION
Here are some examples of just a few stories of how having an advocate can make changes that benefit all cyclists.
A member of IEBA posted pictures of road hazards in the City of Corona. IEBA shared it on it’s Facebook page and someone from the city saw them. In less than a week all the hazards were fixed. IEBA has also sent many requests for other such hazards and repairs have been made.
A collision with a van resulted in a police report that put the bicyclists at fault. We reviewed the situation and call in a law enforcement expert. The cyclists started off with lots of medical bills and a destroyed bike. As a result of getting IEBA involved the situation completely turned around with the motorists being asset fault for passing illegally in a substandard lane and crossing a double yellow. This resulted in a significant settlement in favor of the cyclist.
The IEBA has a program that puts out ghost bikes for fallen cyclists. These result in lots of media attention and that attention brings awareness to the event especially hit and runs. This attention brings further awareness and can help lead to apprehending perpetrators. For 2014, 2 arrests have been made for hit and runs, which is remarkable. We also organize memorial rides that can also bring more needed attention to the need to share the road.

We had a great turnout and incredible energy at our First Anniversary Party. A huge thank you to Olive Ave. Market and Ritual Brewery for their contributions. We had over 100 attendees and we sold out of food and beer. Over 96 IEBA /Ritual glasses were sold along with t-shirts. The night was mostly a time to meet friends and make new ones but most of all we wanted everyone to know what we did this past year and what we have coming for the next. Read it all HERE.

|The Inland Empire Biking Alliance was formed to unify the cycling community to have a stronger voice in promoting bicycling for transportation and recreation
Vision: The IEBA works to make cycling safe, easier, and, most of all, FUN for the whole family.
Philosophy: We represent all forms of cycling whether you are the daily commuter or the mountain bike racer. We
believe in safer roads and sustainable mountain bike trails. We have a
willingness to work with public officials and all user groups to find
solutions to the biking needs of the residents and visitors of the area. By working together we can make the IE one of the safest and most exciting areas in the country to ride.
Bicycling has proven health benefits and the more bicyclists on the road the fewer cars on the road. Bicycling is a clean, energy efficient form of transportation that almost any person can do. Our
group is attempting to change the way the general population views
bicycling and to increase the number of riders using bicycles as a form of exercise and transportation.
