Secluded in the shadows of a delightful tree on a sunny day at the Echo Park lake, I attended a super secret picnic this weekend that brought together a group of L.A. cycling activists known as the Bike Writers Collective. I had known of the group for sometime, and their promotion of a Cyclists Bill of Rights, which they composed and have since been seeking endorsements by various City Councils. There have been a few notable successes including the East Hollywood City Council and the document continues to gain traction.
As one who writes about cycling in Los Angeles and a promoter of all things bike, I have joined the group to lend my support. Bicycle activism powered by pita bread with delicious tomato based dipping sauce, coming to a City Council meeting near you.
