Celebrate the Opening of Carmageddon with Streetsblog, Streetfilms, and Bikerowave and Raise More Funds for Shay


The old Bikerowave was once featured in a Streetfilm

Next Friday, September 28, at 7:00 P.M., Carmageddon begins as the lanes on the 405 between the 101 and 10 are closed for construction. This, of course, is cause for celebration. The only bummer is eventually all these closures are going to lead to another traffic lane on the 405.

To kick-off Carmageddon weekend, the Bikerowave and Streetsblog are teaming to offer a night of Streetfilms and revelry. Streetsblog is providing the drinks, and we encourage everyone to bring food as part of a potluck. Everytime I've been to a potluck at Bikerowave, the food has been great. We may even be debuting some new films next week at the event, stay tuned...

There is no charge for the event, but all proceeds will go to the Kick Butt and Get Better Fund to benefit C.I.C.L.E. founder Shay Sanchez. For those of you who don't know Shay's story, you can read more about it here, but in short:

Shay Wiessler Sanchez was a vibrant and spunky 39 year old, who founded and was at the helm of Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange. But in 2009, her life took a horrible, and life-threatening, turn for the worse. Her decade-long struggle with Lupus manifested into an aggressive form of vasculitis. Her immune system suddenly decided to attack her own arteries and blood vessels.

Long Beach Leads in Traffic Circles

Traffic circles aren't quite ubiquitous in Long Beach, but they're around. Riding and walking through the city one encounters circles in neighborhoods rich and poor, new and old.
