A Special Thanks to Our Sponsors

I’d like to take a quick moment to thank our advertising and foundation sponsors.   Oh, and there’s no links in this article because we want you to click on the advertisements.

Moments ago, we placed an advertisement for LAX Car Share.  With locations in Culver City, Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, West Hollywood and Wilshire Center, they offer more options for residents than any other car sharing company in the area.  In addition to the service they provide, they’ve supported Streetsblog by donating memberships to our raffle events. Click on the advertisement to get more information or become a member.  Tell them Streetsblog sent you and your first hour behind the wheel is on the house.

Over the past couple of weeks, you might have noticed the logo for The David Bohnett Foundation.  This foundation stepped up immediately to help us out with a $2,500 grant when we weren’t sure if Streetsblog was going to continue.  We proudly display their logo as a “thank you” for believing in us when we needed someone to believe in us.

And of course, we can’t say enough about the Flying Pigeon Bike Shop.  It’s a great place to get high quality road bikes for riders of any age.  And if you’re looking for a cargo bike, or another type of specialty bike, they’re the people to talk to.  And they’ve also been extremely supportive of what we’re doing here at Streetsblog having hosted a fundraiser, purchased an advertisement and they’re even loaning us a cargo bike to help with our CicLAvia coverage.  Of course, I’m not just saying this because they’re a sponsor, I trust them so much I worked with them to design the bike we’ve used to move Sammy around for the last ten months.

Open Thread: About That Prius Advertisement…

|
When I announced a couple of weeks ago that Streetsblog had struck an advertising deal with the L.A. Times allowing them to sell advertising space on Streetsblog, I assured readers that did not mean we would be accepting advertisements for automobiles, AAA, or politicians. The second advertisement the Times placed was for a car dealership. […]

Streetsblog Interview: Steve Hymon

At our first stop in front of Marina del Rey’s Cunningham Group Architecture.  For all eighty eight pics from yesterday’s ride, visit the Streetsblog flickr site.
