I find it hard to believe that anyone who regularly reads Streetsblog doesn't know who Stephen Box is.  Either he, his wife, or one of the groups he leads seem to make news just about every week somewhere in Los Angeles.  But for those who don't know, Stephen Box is a Bike Activist and Community Organizer who lives in
Hollywood with his lovely wife, Enci. Stephen says "I believe that our
streets are the new ‘public space’ and our ability to share that space
is one of our greatest opportunities for revitalizing and redefining
our communities.”

Today Stephen provides Streetsblog's first look at the completed Draft Bike Plan for the City of Los Angeles and reviews a unique bike ride, the Crenshaw Crush that ran through South L.A. on Sunday.  Like Joe Linton, Stephen will be writing on multiple days so be sure to check back again to see more of his work.  He can also be read at City Watch and SoapBox L.A.
