L.A. City Council Approves New Bike Plan - Unanimously

While celebrating the pro-bike plan, Alissa Walker warns "the real challenges may prove to be finding the proper funding to drive the plan towards implementation. That will take some massive commitment on behalf of the city."

Among the proposed improvements, "the Citywide Bikeway System will introduce three new interconnected bike path networks-Backbone (long crosstown routes on busy streets), Neighborhood (short connectors through small streets) and Green (along recreation areas)-throughout the city," writes Walker.
