Happy ‘Bike Week!’

Written by

Yes, yes, we all know Los Angeles is supposed to be the Kingdom of the Car and the Fiefdom of the Freeway. But this week, L.A. cyclists are getting some love, attention and care. It’s all part of  Bike Week L.A., an annual event that celebrates bicycle culture in the region and encourages people to try commuting using pedal power.

Bike Week L.A. events include  bicycle repair classes at local bike shops and cooperatives, guided rides on different communities’ bicycle lanes, free use of public transportation for people boarding with their bikes, and discounts at local customers for customers who bike in.  Even God plays a role in Bike Week L.A., with the annual Blessing of the Bicycles event.
