About a month ago, Department of Transportation crews installed bike lanes on Main St. (in Venice) between Windward Circle and the City Limit. Main St. represents a successful implementation of what we’ve recently been calling a “road buffet”, many thanks to Roadblock for coining the term, which changed the street’s configuration from four vehicle lanes (two in each direction) to two lanes with an additional two way left turn lane and bicycle lanes in each direction.

Over the Christmas Holiday, Santa delivered a Go-Pro Camera to the LADOT! Nate and JoJo took the new camera out for a ride on the newly repaved Exposition Line bikeway. If you’re wondering why Nate and JoJo are biking so fast, it’s not due to their super human strength! I compressed the 15 mile bikeway into a 3 minute video, slowing down at various points to highlight a few points of interest. We hope you enjoy the video, expect more in the future! Feel free to comment and share.
