Bike Plan Booed

The Los Angeles City Council's Transportation Committee revealed its new proposed bicycle plan on Weds. to a packed house and a chorus of boos.

The crowd complained that the plan was not comprehensive enough, and lacked public input from bicyclists.

"'No matter what people tell you, we are not involved in the process,' said bike activist Stephen Box, who also commented on several other items discussed at the meeting. 'I'm calling on you to call it dead,' he told Transportation Committee Councilmembers Wendy Greuel and Bill Rosendahl.

'I think it's a big step backwards This is a real slap in the face to bicyclists,' said Los Angeles Bicycle Advisory Committee member Joe Linton.
