Good Magazine has a blog entry this week about the campaign LACBC is working on to make 4th Street a true bicycle boulevard. Below is an excerpt, for the full story click here.

“More recently, bike activists have again tried to draw attention to 4th Street’s potential. The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Cyclists Inciting Change Thru Live Exchange (CICLE) came together last summer to form a committee to explore options for making 4th Street more bike-friendly. The impetus for this push came from LACBC’s Dorothy Le and CICLE’s Joe Linton. The group has discussed design concepts like sidewalk extensions, traffic roundabouts, and new crosswalks which would make the street safer for cyclists while beautifying the area with additional greenspace. At present these ideas are still rough concepts but the committee plans to begin outreach efforts to involve local stakeholders and push the development process forward. ”
