The above flyer was sent to Streetsblog by a member of the Los Feliz Neighborhood Improvement Association with a simple statement,”a little more mockery/pushback/coverage might be useful/entertaining.”

While I take reader requests very seriously, I don’t know what exactly to mock. After all, if Los Feliz is such a Shangri-La that the fourth most pressing problem that neighbors face, after “homelessness,” “crime” and “noise” is “bicyclists” than it must be a pretty awesome place to be.

Personally, I would put the mean look I get at Ramekin when I ask for rainbow sprinkles on my tahitian vanilla ice cream just ahead of “crime,” but to each their own.

Anyway, any bicyclists that want to head on over to the Autry on February 10th should let us know how City Attorney Feuer and Captain Bert proposed to deal with the problem of bicyclists. I would go myself, but it’s just so noisy in Los Feliz these days.
