On Orange 20'x blog this week, I ponder The Strange Case o fthe Missing Mixing Zones.

And on flying Pigeon LA's site I discover that sometime's it's best to Ride Your Bicycle to Ride Your Bicycle, and that just that can be enough….

We look at two specific streets this week, and trouble therein....

At Orange 20 Bikes, we look at an untamed roadway in LA's Miracle Mile district, where Sixth Street Sociopathy grimly stalks victims every week....

And on Flying Pigeon LA's blog, we puzzle over The Good, the Bad, and the Clueless of LADOT's implementation of yet another "test" of the well-proven cycletrack concept—and on the part of Los Angeles street that sees less bike traffic than the portion studiously ignored a few blocks farther on.

Both of this week's posts look at the GlendaleSecond link between Echo Park and Downtown Los Angeles, with somewhat different takes, so I recommend you read them both. They are:

The Disconnected City, in Orange 20s blog, and....

Beyond the Bridge, at Flying Pigeon LA

A silly bit of neglect on LA's part....

Okay, what have we got this week?

Well, on Orange 20 I note that it's A Time to Study, and I recommend a book and an article that might help folks make sense of the current turmoil in America, which certainly affects the bicycle-riding portion of the realm.

And at Flying Pigeon's blog, I report on Nck Richert's Los Angeles Public Street Libraries Ride in Readin' & Ridin', where we disseminated literature from the sublime (Shakespeare's) to the ridiculous (mine), on a tour of Little Free Libraries ranging from Cypress Park to Larchmont Village.

On Orange 20's blog this week, I revel in the simple fact that LADOT actually replaced the ineffective flexible bollards protecting Larchmont's bike corral with substantial posts! It shouldn't be cause for wonder, but it is…read Protection Racket for details.

Then on Flying Pigeon LA's blog, I tout my new part-time job as an Adult Literacy Coordinator for ht eLA public Library, and how it could help the Velorution! Check out Reading, Writing, and Revolution, and you just might agree.

Orange 20's post this week looks at LA's squares—or rather its faux-squares, and then changes its gaze to ponder the once-iconic Pershing Square downtown and its future, in When Is a Square Not a Square?

And Flying Pigeon LA contemplates the Second Street tunnel leading into downtown, and wonders what happened to all the complaints about traffic that frothed up from the automotive sewers after the bike lanes went in—because it's quite peaceful now, even at rush hour. Read Tunnel of Love.
