Winding Down
I suppose I have to accept that I am winding down this blog. I will keep posting irregularly, especially news of Bicycle Fixation Clothing, if there is any, but I will end the posting of links to my blog posts for Orange 20 Bikes and Flying Pigeon LA. I suggest that anyone who has been following this blog as a link to those two local bike shop blogs please sign on to the Bicycle Fixation Twitter account, which is quite busy. You will find it at @BicycleFixation.

Anyone interested in my personal writing—short stories and novels—please sign on to @CrowTreeBooks on Twitter.

If you really want postings to continue here in a bigger way, go to the Comments page (link at left) and let me know. If I get enough "votes," I'll keep it going.

Yes, I got tired of Roman numerals....

This week's blogging starts off with The Faint-Praise Paradigm on Orange 20's blog, where I bemoan the so-called "liberal" media's distinctly lilliberal take on active transport.

Then I post on Joe Bray-Ali's appeal as a candidate for City Council in LA's District 1—an appeal that goes well Beyond Borders to the entire city. Read it and dare to hope….

Rolling through a hot, hot summer....

On Orange 20's blog, we talk about my practice of wearing wool and allowing Fifteen for Sweat-Down as an approach to hot-weather commuting.

Meanwhile, at Flying pIgeon LA, I remind folks that it's summer Tune-Up time—as much for the council district as for your bike.

Orange 20 takes a final look at bikeshare's debut in LA and sees Evidence of Success.

While Flying Pigeon LA advises cyclists and other in the city's Council District 1 that it's time to Take Over Your Neighborhood by electing one of its own to replace do-nothing incumbent Gil Cedillo.

This week's p0ost on Orange 20 examines LA's Late to the Game entry to the bikeshare universe.

While Flying Pigeon LA ponders, Zero to Vision Zero in…Oh, Who Knows?, as the city announces a series of meetings seeking public input on its plan to eliminate traffic deaths by 2025…while not actually changing anything on the streets, if past performance is any guide. Be there and speak up, so that we don't repeat the past yet again!

Orange 20's post this week looks at Breaking Away, Breaking In—away from the bikes-only mindset, and into big-picture politics, to help build a world where bikes are a natural part of daily life.

And at Flying Pigeon LA, Share and Share a Bike looks at July 7th's opening of Metro's new bikeshare program in LA…and wonders whether it will work with so few bikeways in evidence for non-enthusiast users.
