Last Tuesday morning, bicyclists gathered at City Hall to watch the City Council adopt the LA Bike Plan into the City’s General Plan.  After a little celebrating and some quickly consumed lunch meals, some of those selfsame bicyclists sat down at City Hall to make sure the Bike Plan gets implemented.

Advocates, LADOT, Planning & City staff working together

In all, 30 people crowded in City Hall Room 721 on Tuesday afternoon for the second meeting of the Bike Plan Implementation Team.  (You can catch earlier coverage of the BPIT meeting at LACBCFlying Pigeon (twice), and Orange 20.) The lead topic for the 2nd BPIT meeting was the proposed bike lanes on 7th Street (don’t forget, we’re still looking for your input on how to build them!).  The group then discussed the process to build new projects and which projects will be on the docket for the next BPIT meeting.

LADOT Bike Blog has spilled quite a bit of digital ink over the last week talking up LA’s first bike corral at Cafe de Leche in Highland Park. Today saw the grand opening of that bike corral, and LADOT Bike Blog was on hand to witness the joyous occasion.

Just a quick update that construction has begun in earnest on LA’s first bike corral! Though the grand opening is on Friday (and may be postponed due to inclement weather), crews started working on installation of the racks this morning. Braving the chilly, rainy conditions, work crews installed the 5 racks of the bike corral into the street asphalt this morning. Photos were taken by new LADOT Bike Coordinator Nate Baird, who subsequently tweeted the good news.

It sometimes seemed like the day would never come. And yet:

Title 2

Now, what could be at that intersection?

That’s right, a Bike Corral is finally coming to Highland Park.  In the coming weeks, a bright & shiny bike corral will be installed in front of Cafe de Leche at York Boulevard and Avenue 50.  First leaked to Highland Park Patch, a tentative date of February 18th at 9:00 AM has been set for the corral’s grand opening.  Flying Pigeon and CicLAvia have also posted jubilantly about the impending bike corral.  But before jumping into specifics, let’s take a little stroll down memory lane.  How did we get here?

The LADOT Bike Program has 8 project applications in this year's Call For Projects

One of the goals for the LADOT Bike Blog has been bringing a greater degree of departmental communication to the LADOT Bike Program.  We think it’s extremely important for you to know what we are doing to improve conditions for bicyclists in Los Angeles.

Towards that end, we’re proud to publicly unveil 8 project applications that the LADOT Bike Program is submitting to Metro for their Call For Projects.  While you could probably find all the project titles by searching through LADOT and Metro records, LADOT Bike Blog wants to go a little more in-depth on our applications and give a deeper explanation of the application process and our process for applying.

There has been a lot of behind-the-scenes work going on at the LADOT Bike Program over the last few months.  LADOT Bike Blog would like to introduce you to some of the fresh faces helping make it happen.  Working under funding secured for “Student Professional Workers”, the LADOT Bike Program currently employs 4 part-time Assistant Coordinators who also attended graduate school in Urban Planning.  These are the shock troops of culture change at LADOT, and we’re very proud of the work they’ve done to date.  LADOT Bike Blog would like to give you a little peak into their world and the upcoming projects each of them are working on.
