New York Times Focuses on Biking in L.A., Makes Some Space for L.A. Streetsblog

9:36 AM PDT on May 21, 2012

In the Sunday edition, the New York Times put aside a little space to talk about bicycling in Los Angeles. The article points to a boom in the popularity of bicycling throughout the city and gives the credit where it belongs: the advocates and ride leaders that created today's bicycle culture.

Writer Adam Nagourney takes time to quote the Mayor and NYCDOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, but leaves most of the narrative to the advocates who have been working tirelessly for years including three Streetsbloggers: Myself, Joel Epstein and Joe Linton.

If you haven't seen the article yet, take a second to check it out. It's always interesting to get an outsider's perspective on what's taking place in L.A.
