On Tuesday, item #21 came before the City Council and was unanimously passed. Hurray! You can listen to the council meeting yourself right here (to digress for a moment, this website is a pretty cool tool. On-demand agenda, videos, and audio files of every City Council meeting. I highly recommend it.). There was also some […]
The motion for a bike corral pilot project on York Blvd., covered here earlier this month, is scheduled to come before City Council tomorrow, Tuesday April 27th. Carried over from last Friday’s council agenda, the bike corrals motion is scheduled as item number twenty one. Here’s the PDF of the continuation agenda, and here’s all […]
After a slight over-run from City Council, the Council Transportation Committee met and heard item #4, talked about in our post yesterday. The item has been moved on to City Council next month.
So we’ve had some recent comments on LADOT Bike Blog, and some considerable interest from LACBC here, to C.I.C.L.E. here, to Streetsblog here and here and here, all championing a pilot program for Bike Corrals in Northeast LA.

How fortuitous that I was already working on a post that discusses the very same issue! Enjoy.) LADOT’s primary vehicle (ha!) for Bicycle Education is a program called Safe Moves. The program works closely with […]
Safe Parking Series: Part One: Bikes in Demand, Part Two: Location, Location, Location, Part Three: Lock’n’Load (actually, just Lock) Location Matters One of the nice things about a bike is that you can lock it up practically anywhere. A lamp post, a parking sign, a park bench, or a railing; pretty much anything securely attached to […]
