CicLAvia and the Rise of Bicycle Culture in Los Angeles

Hosted by  • 

From East Hollywood to Boyle Heights yesterday, streets were closed so that cyclers, skateboarders or anybody who wasn't propelled by a motor could get acquainted in a leisurely way with a cross-section of LA neighborhoods. We hear voices from along the route and talk with Mayor Villaraigosa about what he says just could be the future of municipal transportation. Also, a Saudi Prince down-sizes in Beverly Hills. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, we hear about some of the major stumbling blocks overcome in a last-minute deal to keep the federal government running, as well as different views of what all sides agree was just a preliminary confrontation.
