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.
