Featured Headline: Just in time for CicLAvia, Metrolink upgraded its bike car fleet from 2 cars to 10 cars.  KPCC reports that the new bike cars will hold "at least" 18 bikes.  Longtime reader Tiffany Kay rode Metrolink into Downtown Los Angeles from Buena Park Station in Orange County and she stopped counting the bikes in the car at 40.  Nice move, Metrolink...and see how CicLAvia is inspiring people well outside of L.A. city limits.  More pics from Kay after the jump.
