Introducing ‘Safety Sirens’

11:24 AM PDT on March 19, 2008

Area cyclists know Dorothy Le as a staffer at Los Angeles County Bike Coalition, but Le is also a "Visionary in Residence" with Quicksilver’s Site LA project. In the video above, Le explains her "Safety Sirens" project as an effort to encourage more people, especially women, to get their bikes out of the garage and back on the street.

Specifically, the project will create a bike mentoring program, which pairs experienced riders with novice riders, organize Sunday afternoon rides around Los Angeles, organize group appearances at large group bike rides such as Critical Mass and Midnight Ridazz rides and hold safety workshops which will be filmed and broadcast online. For more information, check out Dorothy’s blog at Site LA.
