Wednesday is one over-booked night.  What do people have against Tuesday?  Oh, and check out that fundraiser on Friday.  Sounds like fun.  You should go.

Wednesday – Marks the beginning of the summer bike series known as Tour LaBonge.  City Council Transportation Committee Chair Tom LaBonge leads a series of rides throughout his district.  Get the details for this ride, in our calendar section.

Thursday – Another public meeting for the L.A. County Bike Master Plan.  This time, the meeting is in Newhall.

ThursdayFriday – Leaders from the U.S. High Speed Rail Association head to ground zero for coming HSR construction, Downtown Los Angeles!  This two-day conference is sure to be packed full of information about the capital project that could change the landscape of transportation in California.  Get the details, here.

Critical Mass."  That ride seems to have petered out, but you can still take a ride in NELA, this time as part of a Streetsblog fundraiser.  $10 gets you Clif Bars, stickers, other goodies and a great ride…Get all the details, and make fun of the graphic for the ride cards, here.

    You know, with the Expo Line and Purple Line bookending a two mile stretch of La Cienega, you could turn it into a veritable Champs Elysee of TOD.
