Tuesday – Do you like Critical Mass?  I know you do.  Do you like riding with the LAPD?  Well, I’m not so sure about that.  For denizens of the Valley the alternate Critical Mass known as “San Fernando Valley Critical Mass” leaves the Victory/Woodley Orange Line Station at 8:00 P.M.  It’s a good time.  For more information, click here.

Wednesday – On September 15, the driver who ran down community activist and city employee Ed Magos and left him laying in the street pleaded “No Contest” to Hit and Run charges.  On Wednesday, she get sentenced, and the Bike Coalition is sponsoring a ride to the hearing.  Months ago, LACBC held a “ride for justice” that drew attention to the case and helped lead to charges getting filed in the case.  For more information on the history of the crash and trial, click here.  For more on the ride, click here.
