The Week in Livable Streets Events

All Week – Bike repair workshops in Glendale on Monday, Bike Safety Checks in Long Beach on Wednesday and Beverly Hills on Thursday, and a ton of bike events all over the county.  Get news on Bike Month events all over the county on the L.A. Streetsblog Bike Month Mega-Page.

Monday – Wednesday – Just because Phase I of the Expo Line is delayed, again, doesn’t mean Metro isn’t working on Phase II.  This week sees a pair of community meetings on the Westside.  Click here for the rest of the details.

Tuesday – The City of L.A. and Caltrans are sponsoring a community meeting on the North Spring Street Bridge project.  Streetsblog has written not one, but two articles on the project in previous weeks.  Get the details on the meeting, here.

Wednesday – As part of the Culver City Bicycle and Pedestrian Initiative, Culver City, the Culver City Bicycle Coalition, and LACBC will be conducting bicycle and pedestrian counts this May. The last time counts were done was in 2009, so we need to get out there and document the changes.  Get the details, here.

Thursday – Now that all your public comments have been submitted, the Bike Parking Ordinance is scheduled to be presented before the Planning Commission on Thursday.  Get the details, here. Do some pre-meeting research, here.

Saturday – Yes, while we’re avoiding doing too much promotion for Bike Month events, that doesn’t apply to the ones we sponsor.  Join us for the Westside Ride to the Pier, starting at 11555 National Boulevard at 10:30 A.M.  We have CLIF Bars and a stop at the Bikerowave scheduled to add some flair to the ride!
