Bike lessons from Long Beach
January 19, 2012
With the county’s first bicycle master plan in decades heading into the homestretch, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and a team including engineers and members of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition recently hopped on bikes and took a look at what the future might hold.
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. Ride along for a first-hand view.
