This week's Orange 20 post looks at some Practical Pedaling as enacted by your aging writer here, who wonders why the NIMBY's always claim that what he does day by day is obviously impossible….

Meanwhile, at Flying Pigeon LA's blog, that selfsame writer explores the darker recesses of the NIMBY mind in We'll Always Have Paris.

Bicycle Fixation Made-in-LA Merino Clothing Sale
Even California's getting colder now, so it's the perfect time to take advantage of Bicycle FIxation's inventory clearance and pick up out versatile 100% merino t-shirts and jerseys at barely above our cost.

With the Recession having hollowed out the economy, the apparel industry has been hit hard, and even American Apparel is in imminent danger of bankruptcy. They're the 800-pound gorilla of the industry, while we're one of those cute little marmosets, but even we need our daily banana, so we've got our two priciest items on deep discount till the backlog is cleared out.

Our New Urban Jersey is, along withall our products, designed to be comfortable and good looking on or off the bike. A spin-off from our famous Four Season Jersey, but with a mandarin collar replacing the hood/balaclava, it features two pockets but looks in no way technical or team-kit like. Wear it anywhere a a mid or outer layer or even next to the skin--the merino rib knit is one of the most comfortable fabrics we've encountered. Made in downtown Los Angeles. See it at:
New Urban Jersey

Our Merino V-Neck T-Shirt is alos 100% merino. sourced by us directly from the mill in New Zealand, and made in downtown Los Angeles. It's a middle-weight jersey weave, usable as a base or mid-layer and handsome enough to use on its own in warmer weather. Cut for full coverage while cycling, even on sporty bikes. Fits any body shape. See it (with my son modeling) at:

Nagging by comparison time this week: on Orange 20's blog, I note that Paris, Seattle, and Las Vegas provide Three Lessons for La-La Land….

While at Flying Pigeon LA, I note that Common Sense is Creeping Up on LA as cities all around it install protected bikeways on major streets.

An encounter with an urban coyote give me the chance to muse of the most dangerous animals I encounter in day-to-day pedaling—read Call of the Wild on Orange 20's blog.

While a perusal of the great news out of Norway leads me to ponder American Exceptionalism and the sad reality that it's leading us to opt out of the future…see it at Flying Pigeon LA.

It's Nag Week this week! That's right, since on Orange 20's blog, in Down by the Riverside, I ask you to sign a petition nudging the Army Corps of Engineers to pony up their promised half of restoration funding for the beleaguered Los Angeles River….

While at Flying Pigeon LA's fine site, I beg for votes for the GRID harbor freight project I've been helping with for four years—one that would take tens of thousands of trucks off the region's streets, and help keep our air breathable. You can Choose Your Future with a click. We're in the running for a grant from MyLA2050—and you get to pick who wins!

LA's happiest day, CicLAvia Sneaks Back Home, and we report on it at Orange 20 Bikes.

Meanwhile, our post at Flying Pigeon LA notes that "Transparency" Is Not "Invisibility", and that LA's cyclists would like to know what went on in those backroom meetings between rogue council member Gil Cedillo and the executive director of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition….

This week's post at Orange 20 Bikes, entitled, Active Transportation at the New Urbanism Film Festival Today, is technically out of date, but still worth reading as an introduction to LA's only film festival dedicated to urban sustainability—and an event you'll be hearing more of as it grows. And you can see trailers for many of the films presented on its website, linked to form the article.

Meanwhile, at Flying Pigeon LA we plug the upcoming CicLAvia, the return of the original "Heart of LA" edition, in CicLAvia Classic Is Back! It's going to be a good one! See you there?

This week, our Orange 20 post looks at how the city is Tiptoeing towards Safety in Hancock Park—by proferring the meekest of implied rebukes to murderous drivers on Sixth Street.

Meanwhile, in Flying pigeon LA's blog, we explore How Cars Keep Housing Out of Reach in Highland Park. And invite you to drop by the flying Pigeon shop to learn more!
