Big Bike Meeting Today

10:34 AM PST on November 21, 2008

11_21_08_critical.jpg

(Editor's Note: This is the last in a five part series examining the five bike-related items on this Friday's City Council Transportation Committee Agenda.  The first piece looked at the city's bike sharing program, the second discussed the Bike Rider's Bill of Rights, and Wednesday's looked at bike licensing. Thursday we saw that the Bike Master Plan may not be ready for it's big unveiling quite yet.)

Well, today's the big day.  We've finally arrived at the City Council's Transportation Comittee's Big Bike Meeting...and this time there's no agenda item that has to do with limiting access to a bike trail.

Since there's been no action on our fifth bike-related agenda item, a motion asking LADOT, Caltrans and Metro to provide their own plans to improve biking in the city, since the last big bike meeting; let this post be a last rallying call to any concerned cyclist to head down to City Hall this afternoon.  The Bike Writer's Collective has issued their call to action at City Watch and Illuminate LAThe Midnight Ridazz are planning a meet for a ride downtown and the LACBC has issued their own call to action via their email list.

For those of you looking to ride downtown, the ride starts at Vermont and Santa Monica at noon.  For those looking to attend the meeting who are already downtown, the meeting starts at 1 P.M.  If you can't make it and want to listen in you dial up the City Council at these numbers, pending your location:

Downtown (213) 621-CITY

San Pedro (310) 547-CITY

West Los Angeles (310) 471-CITY

Van Nuys (818) 904-9450

Have a good weekend everyone, don't have too much fun on the Red Line tonight.
