The Week in Livable Streets Events

Our August vacation from doing "The Week in Livable Streets Events" is over. We're back with a short week featuring LACBC training for bicycle and pedestrian counts, a meeting on bike safety issues with the LAPD in the Valley and more! We will talk more about the importance of bike and ped. counts tomorrow, but if you have the time to help out, you should.

    • Today - Folks in the Valley are invited to LAPD Deputy Chief Jorge Villegas and Metro Orange Line tonight at 6 pm. To RSVP and get the location details, contact Glenn Bailey, a member of the city's Bicycle Advisory Committee. Get more details, here.
    • Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday - The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition is holding training classes before next week's annual bicycle and pedestrian count. The City of Los Angeles rarely (if ever) counts the number of people walking and bicycling, preferring "traffic studies" to transportation studies. This the Bike Coalition is focusing on the San Fernando Valley and South L.A. If you live, work or play in those areas it's a good time to get involved by helping with the counts. But first, you need to get trained. Get the details, here.
    • Saturday - Supervisor Gloria Molina invites you and your family to the 2nd Annual East L.A. Bike Ride! LACBC is organizing and leading two rides for all ages and abilities. The 4-mile route is for children and families. The 8-mile route is for adults who want something a little longer. The ride begins at 9:30 at the Civic Center. Get more details, here.
    • Saturday - A one-time event on a Saturday afternoon, to stimulate and encourage artistic expressionthroughout the Los Angeles area…Get a day pass, if you're not a regular Metro rider and join the fun. Get more details here or on Facebook.

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.
