Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: Our Good Friend Joe Linton spent some time riding around the city this weekend and has two great stories at the Eco-Village blog.  The first story is some good news as he rides some brand new bike lanes on 1st in Boyle Heights.  The second is a little more frustrating as he notes that many of the streets in the LADOT’s new Sharrows list are wide enough for bike lanes without having to remove travel lanes or existing car parking.
