Bicycle Beauty Contest

What could be more groovy than a bicycle beauty pageant to benefit CicLAvia?? Saturday September 18th 2010:

It goes down on September 18th at  8pm at 3191 Casitas Avenue in Atwater Village! Decorate your bike!

One note on directions: while it kinda looks like Casitas Avenue and Fletcher Drive intersect, they don’t! Fletcher goes under Casitas, which runs right along the railroad tracks. From Fletcher, turn on La Clede Avenue, then continue along Fletcher’s frontage road one block and you’re at Casitas. You can’t miss it! Look for signs!

Straightening Out the Vestigial Kinks in Bus Routes

|
Just a few months after Houston reorganized its bus network to provide more frequent service where more people can use it — without increasing the operating budget — ridership is already on the upswing. A lot goes in to bus network analysis and how to put scarce resources to better use. But some inefficiencies clearly stand out on a […]

Image from The Fletcher Studio’s presentation to Sci-Arc via Urban Insights I usually don’t pull story ideas directly from The Metro Library’s daily headlines page, but this one was just too good to pass up.
