Bike lessons from Long Beach
January 24, 2012
Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and a team, including county engineers, recently hopped on bikes and took a look at street strategies that could be applied across the county. On their cycling tour of Long Beach–which makes no secret of its aim of knocking Portland off its perch as America’s most bicycle-friendly city–they pedaled along innovative bike boulevards, green sharrows and a spectacular stretch of the Pacific. Their takeaway: where there’s a will, there’s a bikeway.
