Place Your Pictures in the Bike Plan

Since we won’t be doing a lot of publishing today, I wanted to give Streetsbloggers something to do besides sending the Petition for a National Search for LADOT General Manager to all of your friends.

Streetsblogger Vicki Karlan had the idea that one way to improve the city’s Draft Bike Plan was to improve the images in the plan. While its not a panacea, it does sound like a fun project. So, Karlan sent the above slide show, in Power Point format, to City Planning. Planning responded that they loved the picture and asked for more.

So here’s your Veteran’s Day homework, find some pictures of cycling in Los Angeles and link to them in the comments section. This entire thread will be passed on to City Planning and maybe your picture will make the plan.

Also, a quick note for parents, if your child is in one of these pictures and you’d like us to remove him or her from the submission.  Just let us know.
