Next Wednesday: Another Bike-Only City Council Transportation Committee Hearing

Via the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, next Wednesday at 2:00 P.M. will be another "bicycle heavy" Transportation Committee Hearing.  There’s some new and interesting stuff on the agenda, such as a "bicycle anti-harassment ordinance," and some old friends such as an update on the Draft Bike Plan.  Below is the LACBC’s email, and once the agenda items are posted tomorrow we’ll have a full review.

Cyclists! It is important that you come to Wednesday’s LA City Council Transportation Committee meeting! 

Here is the announcement sent by Councilmember Rosendahl’s office:
