With news of more attacks along the Ballona Creek Bike trail breaking earlier this week, it is more urgent than ever to get more people to use the trail and create a more safe environment. An increased safety presence from the city, especially the LAPD Pacific Division, appear to be in the works. But in the meantime, it's up to all of us to help make the trail as safe as possible.
To that end, a group of cyclists, not affiliated with any of the large biking non-profits, have organized a ride of our own for this Saturday, at 11 A.M. starting at the Culver Drive and Sawtelle Boulevard entrance to Ballona Creek. Various other groups, such as the Friends of the Ballona Wetlands and the Ballona Creek Renaissance will be setting up tables to pass on information about other events and usage for the trail.
