#DamienTalksSGV 9 – The State of Bike Planning in the SGV with Wes Reutimann

This week, #DamienTalks with Wes Reutimann, the executive director of Bike SGV. With Bike Month nearly half over, it seemed as good a time as any to get an update on the state of bicycle advocacy in the San Gabriel Valley.

Of course we discuss the open streets mega-event 626, but there's a lot of other exciting news on Open Streets. Of course we talk about all of the new infrastructure planned but we go into depth on 100 miles of planned greenways. And there's still time left to talk about the newly-passed bike plan in Duarte, which includes protected bikeways to and from the newly-opened Gold Line Station.

We're always looking for more show ideas. If you have any thoughts on the podcast, good or bad, please let me know. You can email me at damien@streetsblog.org or tweet @damientypes.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit. Foothill Transit has been a leader in sustainable transportation for years. And now they’re committed to having a 100% electric bus fleet by 2030. To celebrate, Foothill Transit is giving away prizes and sharing facts about how their electric buses help clear the air.
