Offsite Blogging CCIX
Sorry I haven't been posting much original material here, but my days have been very busy, and I take care of my paying clients first…such as the two fine community activist bike shops represented in this space.

So this week, I showcase the freshly-repaired bike corral on Larchmont Boulevard on Orange 20's blog, in Up, Down, and Up Again. The poor thing was dented by a car but kept on parking heaps of bikes till it was repaired!

Meanwhile, on Flying Pigeon LA's blog, I look at how Nobody Rides in LA...except, of course, for all the folks who do.

This week, I comment on the upcoming primary election in both orange 20's blog and Flying Pigeon's, but since the two activists bike shops are in different districts, it would be worth reading both posts if you live anywhere in LA—because if you do, what the council members battling for power do in those districts will affect your ride.

At Orange 20 Bikes: You Pick 'Em.

And at Flying Pigeon LA: Vote or Choke.

It's going to be a rough election season. The finals follow in May; let's hope we still have a choice by then.

With an election coming up, I look at how Livable-Streets-friendly Los Angeles City Council candidate Tomáas O'Grady needs tog o Beyond Safe Streets to win the election. On Orange 20 Bikes.

And at Flying Pigeon I look at the madness of the SUV-dominated school runs in LA and elsewhere, and how Exchanging Circles—that is, vicious circles for virtuous ones—might be the right prescription.

Orange 20's site sees a short list of upcoming community meetings that bear of bicycling, titled, reasonably enough, Making It Happen: Upcoming Community Meetings.

And Flying Pigeon LA celebrates the city's newest bike corral, on Larchmont Boulevard, and its steadfastness in protecting parked bikes, and even pedestrians in the adjacent crosswalk, from the shopping street's plague of maniacal drivers. It stands Battered but Unbowed, still parking bikes and shielding walkers while it awaits repairs….
