Keeping you perpetually pedalling

~
In case you missed it, this is Bike-to-Work Week and Thursday is Bike-to-Work Day.

I am glad for boosting cycle use and cycle rights, but I wish council prez Eric Garcetti would work as hard on bringing new homeowners into the City instead of perpetually mollifying renters with consolation prizes such as this one, while unaffordable rents eat away the renters' real incomes.

Also, serial cyclist Will Campbell (who lives in Garcetti's district) recently completed a ride from Silver Lake to the Watts Towers and back to Boyle Heights. I'm watching for what he might have to say about Bike-to-Work Day/Week, as his own route to work by bike is typically fraught with peril.
