    Looks like there is some pushback against bikeways in San Pedro:

    I recently pedaled through there, and they need a dedicated route from Palos Verdes to Long Beach.

    Re: Bike Paths in Southern California

    WILSHIRE BOULEVARD from Fairfax to Downtown LA will be closed to vehicle traffic this Sunday for the next CICLAVIA celebration.

    For those who've never attended, it's free. No registration required. Just come on a bicycle, skateboard, roller skates or foot. Nothing motorized. And enjoy the street. For once it doesn't belong to automobiles.

    Re: Bike Paths in Southern California

    Another cyclist killed- sad.

    I saw a note that the green bike lane on Spring Street is getting a lot of the paint taken off, and what is repainted will be a darker green. I'm not sure what to feel about that one. Still a bike lane, still has green paint so motorists can *see* that it's a bike lane, but still sort of a step backwards.

    CicLAvia was fun- we went to the last one. Wish I could go to this one, too. Hope everybody who can go has a good time!

    Re: Bike Paths in Southern California

    "I didn't see the bike" seems to be the attempt to place blame on the cyclist for getting hit. I'm not impressed by it- it's the job of the motorist to be looking for anything they need to avoid.

    Too many people get hit. And while some cyclists are indeed erratic, most are riding normally. No excuses.

    But when they're busy sending texts while driving, some only scan for large objects like cars and buses.
