Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline:

Bikeside simply asks, “Is Los Angeles bike-friendly?” with a five question survey at Survey Monkey.  Take a couple of minutes and help them gather some data.  For the record, I said that the city still has a some ground to cover before I would say the city is “friendly” to cyclists, but that with hard work and 40 miles of infrastructure a year, we could get there in five years.  Get more info at Bikeside and fill out the survey at Survey Monkey.
