This is Bike Week in Los Angeles, and there have been numerous Bike Week events, with a few more Bike Month events still on the way.
On Monday, Metro kicked off Bike Week with a groundbreaking ceremony for the Union Station Bike Hub.
The bike hub is under construction and expected to open this fall, on the north side of Union Station.
On Tuesday, Good Samaritan Hospital hosted its annual Blessing of the Bicycles. A multi-denominational team of clerics prayed for bicyclist safety.
On Thursday’s Bike to Work Day, L.A. City Councilmember Joe Buscaino biked from San Pedro to downtown Los Angeles. He was accompanied by an entourage including Buscaino staffer John Jones III, of the East Side Riders Bike Club, and Tamika Butler of the L.A. County Bicycle Coalition.
