The Week in Livable Streets Events
Possibly doing to the religious events, and possibly because this is one of those week’s that span two months, this week is a little slow to start. But there’s a lot of fun events on Saturday to look forward to, including the birthday party for the Valley Bikery.
Monday-Tuesday – Tonight and tomorrow night, the Southern California Association of Governments is hosting introductory meetings for a project "identifying ways to improve traffic flow on La Cienega Boulevard and
lessen the impact of regional traffic on local residents." Hopefully, with proper guidance, this doesn’t turn into a project about widening La Cienega. You can read more about the meetings at the Streetsblog calendar. They start at 6:00 P.M.
Thursday – The Los Angeles County Bike Coalition is holding a stuffing party for their Bicycling Resource Guide, now available in English and Spanish. Since the guide arose from the work of the City of Lights Program, it’s good to see the guide going out in Spanish. For more info on the guide, click here. For more on the event, click here.
Saturday – It’s no secret that Streetsblog is a big fan of Bike Talk and (I think) vice versa. But this week’s edition is focusing mostly on the issue of Women and Bikes. It promises to be a fun and enlightening show and can be heard on http://killradio.org from 10:00 A.M. to noon. The call in number is 213.252.0998.
Saturday – Happy birthday Valley Bikery! Has it been a year already? They’re teaming with C.I.C.L.E. to host a birthday party/urban expeditions ride. Sounds like fun. Meet at noon at CSUN.
Saturday – When you’re done on the radio and biking through the Valley; the film "Women of Dirt" is going to be screened at the Cinespace in Hollywood. Sounds like there’s a lot of other events going on in conjunction with the screening, so check out their calendar listing for more information.
