Happy 10th Birthday LACBC

9_10_08_lacbc.jpg

Head on over to the Eco-Village this Friday for the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition’s 10th Birthday.  This group has been causing headaches for car-centric planner for over a decade.  I can’t wait to see what the LACBC is like as a teenager.

Unfortunately, I’ll be out of town for this event.  If anyone wants to go and take some pictures and share them with Streetsblog, send me an email at damien@streetsblog.org. If anyone wants more information on the event visit LACBC’s website.
