Tuesday and Saturday – The Los Angeles County Bike Coalition begins its bike counts within city limits for the City of Los Angeles.  If the copious amount of e-mail I’ve gotten is any indication, and it is, they are still looking for volunteers.  If you have any free time, email yhendlin@ucla.org.  And for more information, click here.

Thursday – At 9:30 A.M. in the Metro Boardroom Downtown it’s a Metro Board Meeting?  This week, will the Board finally make a decision on whether or not to renew their exclusive rail car contract with Ansaldo Breda?  Will they vote on the 2008, 2009, 2010 Long Range Transportation Plan?  I doubt it.  But at least they’ll hold a hearing on the fare structure for their Silver Streak Bus Service.

Friday – The Fourth Friday of the month is traditionally the one with Critical Mass celebrations/protests.  Rides will leave from Wilshire/Western and Winward Circle in Venice at 7:00 P.M.  For those a little farther our, Costa Mesa and Orange County have their own rides.

Saturday – C.I.C.L.E. Kicks off their Families and Bikes (F.A.B.) program with the "Endless Summer" ride.  he free community event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.,
Saturday, Sept. 26 at Brookside Park, 480 N. Arroyo Blvd., in Pasadena.
Activities will include a leisurely-paced family ride that will tour
the Rose Bowl loop, short trail rides for younger children (ages 4-9),
a scavenger hunt, games such as Frisbee and soccer, and a raffle.
