Taking a Look at Bike to Work Week
Some people think that Bike to Work Day and Bike to Work Week are cop-outs. I’ve heard and read a couple of notable cyclists that complain that governments roll out the red carpet for cyclists one week per year to try and make up for the other 51.
I take a somewhat less pessimistic view. Since we live in a city that still doesn’t do bike counts when it counts cars, this is our week to show everyone how many of us ride bikes, and how diverse our growing community is. After all, they can’t ignore our presence on the streets when we’re at events they help program. Metro, LADOT and the Los Angeles County Bike Coalition worked together on the events within the city while C.I.C.L.E. and the City of Pasadena worked together on Bike Week Pasadena.
What follows is a compilation of photos, with a video, of images from around the county this week. If people have their own images, please send them to me or provide a link in the comments section. Right now, we’re a little heavy on pictures taken by government employees.
(Update: A new batch of pictures just came in, keep them coming!)
If you have more or better pictures, send them along! I’ll continue to update this post as more images, and video, come in.
