Union Street in Pasadena runs parallel to that city's more famous Colorado Avenue. The city decided not to put protected bike lanes on Colorado out of fear it would create problems during the world-famous Rose Parade. Now, opposition is rising to the lanes on the still much-used parallel street.

As for the 626, the super open streets event will finally hit the street in 2017, after a postponement caused by the wildfires in June. A date hasn't been announced yet, but there is hope for February. Keep your calendar open.
