Last week, Streetsblog asked you to send us your Bike to School Day media for a short video we’re working on celebrating Bike Week in Los Angeles County. While we didn’t get enough pictures and video to finish the project, it did occur to us that there are a lot of fun bike events scheduled for this week as well, and with your help we can still complete this project.

While we’ve gathered fun images from Bike to School Day, the Dodgertown Bike Ride, and Long Beach BikeFest, we know there’s a lot more than that going on (for example: Blessing of the Bikes, Bike Week Pasadena, Bike to Work Day). Send your images and video from other Bike Week events (official or not) to damien@streetsblog.org.

We’ll make sure to include them and credit you for your donation.

Sometimes, […]
