The Week in Livable Streets Events

Posted By Damien Newton On June 14, 2010 @ 8:13 am In The Week In... | 1 Comment

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 [1].

Wednesday - If  you prefer bike policy to bike meetings, the first Metro Bicycle Roundtable Sub-Committee [2] will be meeting at Metro HQ at 6:00 P.M.  The topic? Implementation of Metro's bike goals.

Wednesday - Santa Monica Spokes, the newest chapter of the LACBC, holds an organizational meeting that is open to the public.  Join them at 502 Colorado Avenue at 6:30 [3].

Wednesday-Thursday -SCAG continues to collect data about what the future holds for the La Cienega Corridor.  Honestly?  I find a lot of La Cienega to be some of the worst place to walk or bike.

Thursday - Another public meeting for the L.A. County Bike Master Plan.  This time, the meeting is in Newhall [4].

Thursday-Friday - 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 [5].

Friday - Back in the days of yore, the second Friday of the month was "Northeast L.A. 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 [6].

Saturday -  Explore the art and culture of Echo Park and Filipino Town with the "Art Folk Ride."  Check it out, here [7].

Next Monday - And for anyone looking ahead...next Monday, the DEIR hearings for the Wilshire Bus-Only lanes kick-off.  Get all the details, here [8].
