A Great Evening At The Streetsblog Fundraiser

It was a perfect, warm Friday spring evening at last night’s Streetsblog Los Angeles fundraiser at Eco-Village near Koreatown. I was in the company of many familiar faces in the bicycling/transit/sustainability community and even put faces to familiar names I’ve encountered in the online world.

Last weekend’s CicLAvia was the big talk of the […]

CicLAvia #2: SEEK LOVE, YEAH!

It’s hard to believe that an entire six months had passed since the inaugural CicLAvia open streets event, but the first of three in 2011 had arrived on Sunday.

Reality Bikes: CicLAvia Comes To Life

Saturday, March 7, 2009 was a pretty memorable day for me. You wouldn’t believe me when I say it, but in the morning, I helped clean up the streets of Historic Filipinotown with boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, and in the evening I went on a bike ride with Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong […]

Come, Mr. Tally Man: Doing the Glendale Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count 2010, Part 2

Continuing on Wednesday’s efforts to count bicyclists and pedestrians on San Fernando and Los Feliz for the Glendale Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count 2010 , I returned to the intersection today, a much warmer day, riding my bike four miles from home through Los Feliz to the intersection. Joined by two other men, Sean and […]

Come, Mr. Tally Man: Doing the Glendale Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count 2010

Last year I helped my friend and neighbor, Colin Bogart, who heads the City of Glendale’s Safe and Healthy Streets program, in tallying the intersection of Columbus Drive and Riverdale Avenue in that city for the Glendale Bicyclist and Pedestrian Count 2010..Armed with a clipboard I counted the number of pedestrians […]

Pedaling Towards Advocacy

I realized it’s been a while since I’ve been active in the bike advocacy scene, so spurred by a Facebook event invitation, I decided to check out a local meeting forĀ  the 4th St. Bike Boulevard’s media campaign for an event on Saturday, July 24.

“The 4th Street Bike Boulevard” is a […]
