Every year, we struggle with how best to cover Bike Week. The series of special events, culminating in Bike to Work Day, is always something to behold. But at the same time, without a small army dedicating to covering the event, how does a website such as Streetsblog give fair and equal coverage? Is The Blessing of the Bikes more important than Pasadena's Ladies Night or just getting hug from Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster? Who knows?
So this year, we asked you to get us pictures, or video, from Bike Week and you responded. The above picture collection includes images from our own Gary Kavanagh, South L.A.'s Community Health Council, Metro and even the L.A. Times' transportation writer, Laura Nelson (the view over the handle bars.) We couldn't include all of the pictures, although we did our best to include at least one shot from everyone who submitted.
But even as I was uploading this video, I was getting more submissions. So in addition to hitting play, read on after the jump for even more Bike to Work imagery.
