LADOT Bikeways is celebrating the addition of 5,000 official bicycle parking spaces to their online bikeways map.

In the real world, it’s nice to be able to plan a trip and know how much bicycle parking is at or near your destination.

But for now, LADOT deserves a pat on the back for making their bikeways map a little better.
