I always enjoy these celebratory bike facility gatherings. Last time we had this many folks out, it was for the opening of the bike corral on York Blvd. in the 14th Council District. Today, we celebrated the opening of the 7th St. bike lanes in CD 1 at MacArthur Park with Council Member Ed Reyes, a number of local media outlets, and at least a score of bicyclists excited to see this important facility on the ground.
We tweeted a few photos, too. Check those out at our Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/LADOTBikeProg
Many thanks are due to the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition for organizing the event and for playing such an important leadership role in communicating the importance of this facility to local community member via their outreach efforts. Their 7th St. bike lanes campaign video is a must see.
And a huge thank you to Council Member Ed Reyes for his leadership and guidance on this project. Council District 1 staff have been very supportive from the very beginning. Thank you especially to Jill Sourial!
