Bussani Mobility & 10th Annual C.U.R.B. Bike Ride

This Saturday, August 10th, is the 10th Annual C.U.R.B Bike Ride in Long Beach and Bussani Mobility is pleased to be sponsoring this amazing event as they celebrate their 10th anniversary.  This year’s ride will include the newly finished Long Beach Boardwalk.

C.U.R.B. of Citizens United to Remove Barriers is a local, non-profit organization which gives the physically challenged a chance to live a life free of barriers.  Funding is provided for wheelchair ramps and lifts in and around the homes of those in need.

One of the first and ongoing achievements of C.U.R.B. was and continues to be the placement of a curb cut on every corner throughout the City of Long Beach. This agreement between Long Beach and C.U.R.B. has allowed persons with physical disabilities to travel independently throughout the city since the mid 1980s, way before the enactment of the ‘Americans with Disabilities Act.’

Along with sponsoring the event we will have a tent set-up with information about our various products & services along with one of our BraunAbility Vans for anyone interested in checking out these amazing vehicles.  We will be located in the Long Beach Recreation Center parking lot near the start/finish point.
