Don’t Forget the Bike Week Mega-Page for All the Events Around the County.

  • It’s “Bike To Work Day”, and yet the two prominent bike-oriented stories on Streetsblog today are about niche, “outsider” cycling activities: routes for extremely long-distance cyclists, and urban fixed-gear tricksters.

    Nothing wrong with either story per se (and there’s been plenty of “Bike To Work Day” posts here this week), but it does remind me that we still have a very long way to go until the general public thinks of bicycles as utilitarian vehicles that normal people use.

  • Oops, posted too soon… 

  • We got off to a later start today than usual because of the bike to work day ride in the morning…

    There’s so much to write about to try and encompass the bike scene in Greater L.A.  We tried to do as much as we could this week, too bad Critical Mass isn’t until next week.

  • Should have made my statement a bit more precise. Streetsblog itself does a fine job with covering utilitarian cycling… it’s those stories from outside sources that I was using to draw my conclusion.
