CCHS Mash

Welcome to the Culver City Mash Bike Club

The Culver City Mash is an ASB social club that meets every Thursday in Room 3 (ceramics studio). Our club was created to provide a forum for those interested in riding bikes of all types and at all levels. The Culver City Mash is open to all CCHS students. Club meetings include bike safety tips, repair techniques and clinics and group rides on weekends.

There is no membership fee.  For those who attend regularly and pass specific bike safety and skills tests, there is an opportunity to earn a bike as well.
