We’ve got another great reason to donate to Streetsblog’s year-end pledge drive — give before midnight Sunday, and you’ll be entered to win a sleek TiGr titanium bike lock:

One of these sleek bike locks is going to a reader who gives $50 or more by Sunday at midnight.

With the implementation of the city’s bicycling backbone network imperiled by car dealerships and the AAA in South Park, pearl clutching homeowners and their pet Council Member in West L.A., and the status of lanes on Lankershim in the Valley in question; next year will be a key one for bicycling and Livable Streets policy in Los Angeles.

Streetsblog needs your support to counteract the misinformation and hold city leaders to their promises on livable streets and a better Muni.

Also, don’t forget, everyone who gives $50 or more before the end of the year will also be eligible to take home a new Public C7 or V7 bicycle. We have bikes to give away to two lucky readers:

A huge thanks to the readers who’ve contributed so far — every donation brings us closer to our goal!
