Calling for Your Photos of Work Bikes

There’s
still time to submit photos for our next slide show. We’re looking for
pictures of bikes at work — hauling, delivering, getting the job done.
International submissions are definitely welcome.

The shot
below, showing the Santa Cruz candy man on his way to hawk his wares on
the boardwalk, captures the spirit perfectly. It comes from Richard
Masoner, the author of Streetsblog Network member Cyclelicious.

A couple of specific items on our wish list: messengers, pedicabs and food delivery. The ordinary stuff, you know?

In case you didn’t get a chance to see our two earlier slide shows, check them out. One is on bike traffic (that beautiful thing), the other on cars and trucks hogging space that could be used by people.

Send your pics to me at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org, or tag them with "streetsblog" and "workbike" in Flickr.

We want to put up the results on Friday, so get your pics in by Thursday morning if you can.

And thank you.

Yes, You Need a License to Ride a Bike in Los Angeles

|
Recently, cyclists are finding themselves being ticketed for not having a license on their bicycle.  This has lead to outrage in the community from some, the bicycle licensing laws are meant to help recover stolen bikes not harass the people on them, and confusion from others.  It seems a lot of people don’t even know […]
