Wednesday – The City Council is in summer recess so there will be no City Council Transportation Committee. However, this seems as good a place as any to congratulate Committee Chair Mike Bonin and his husband Sean Arian on their marriage this weekend. Wooot! Wooooooot!

Thursday – Active transportation, congestion pricing, short range transportation plans, poor management of the Sheriffs, it’s a full agenda for the Metro Board of Directors in their last meeting until September. Read the full agenda, here.

Friday – Critical Mass. Wilshire Western. 7:00 p.m.

Saturday – Join Walk ‘n Rollers in Culver City for a fun day learning how to bike and walk safely in your community. All ages welcome and we’ll even have bikes and helmets for those without (helmets are required on the course and group rides). More info.

Sunday – We’re having a small private party to celebrate the Streetsie Win of Santa Monica Mayor Pam O’Connor as our 2013 Elected Leader of the Year at 2 p.m. If you’re interested in joining us, drop me a line at damien@streetsblog.org
