Streetsblog T-Shirt Contest: Metrolink, Your Bike, and You

Photo via: ##http://thesource.metro.net/2011/08/03/metrolink-adds-bike-cars/##The Source##

Earlier this week, The Source announced that it is adding a pair of bike cars to the Antelope Valley Inland Empire Line.  While this is generally considered good news, even though some Source readers have some pretty valid concerns, I hate The Source’s picture.  One bike, one lonely and clearly posed bike, alone on a giant car.  To be fair to the Source, it’s not their picture.

I know Streetsblog readers can do better, assuming we have any that ride the Antelope Valley Inland Empire Line, which is why we’re offering a free L.A. Streetsblog T-Shirt to the first reader to either get us a picture of many bikes using the cars or a picture of your bike using the car.

Just send your pictures to damien at streetsblog dot org.  We’ll announce the winner, and show off their picture, as soon as we get a winner.

(P.S. – Elson Trinidad edges Ted Rogers in last week’s t-shirt contest.  Elson, email me your address and shirt and we’ll get the shirt in the mail. – DN)

Box: Metrolink Passes Bike Friendly Test

(This is the first in a three-part series from Stephen Box.  In the coming weeks he’ll be discussing the bike (and passenger) friendliness of Metro Rail and Amtrak. – DN) When I embark on a #BikeTrain adventure, I typically put my train-boarding theory to work by heading for the front car. I believe that this […]
