Streetfilms: Biking and Block Partying in LA
The bike scene in Los Angeles is alive and well — and growing every day.
Streetfilms rode along with one of two bike tours of local art studios sponsored by the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council.
Afterward, we joined a block party in progress, arriving just in
time to hear solid words of encouragement and promises of a brighter bicycling
future from LA City Council President Eric Garcetti, himself a bike rider. Dancing, art, food, and general chillaxing in the streets continued until 10 p.m.
Sure, LA has a bigger hill to climb than most major U.S. cities,
but it could also benefit the most from a livable streets agenda. Once
the seeds are planted, there’s no going back.
