City of Lights and a Dignified Bicycle

If I had to pick one thing that makes Los Angeles' bicycle scene different than scenes in other cities, there are three things that come to mind: the amazing D.I.Y. Culture embodied by the co-ops, Midnight Ridazz and the City of Lights Programs.  It's not that other cities' bike communities don't have their own co-ops, plan their own massive bike rides, or reach out to minority cyclists; it's that Los Angeles' army of advocates have been doing this work for so long without the backing of any major funders or even the city itself.

So when I'm sent a film combining two of those aspects, City of Lights and co-ops, it has to make an appearance on Streetsblog.  The above film was put together before City of Lights' staff went to the U.S. Social Forum highlighting their outreach efforts and partnership with the Bicycle Kitchen to create the BiciDigna (translation: the Dignified Bicycle).  If you're at one of those terminals that doesn't allow you to view YouTube videos, then check out the summary at Ciudad de las luces.
