Get INVOLVED: Discuss the LABMP with your peers, Saturday, 1pm

By Alex Thompson

[UPDATE:  Change of venue.  The new location and time is Saturday, 2pm, at the Hollywood Adventist Church, 1711 N. Van Ness Ave., Hollywood, CA 90028.  We’ll be in the Fellowship Hall on the NW side of the parking lot.]

This Saturday the Bike Writers Collective invites you to change the course of cycling in LA.  Join us Saturday, 2pm, at the Hollywood Adventist Church, 1711 N. Van Ness Ave., Hollywood, CA 90028, to review, discuss, and critique the draft LA Bike Master Plan with your peers (Facebook event).  We’ll be in the Fellowship Hall on the NW side of the parking lot.  It’s the LA Bike Working Group, and we’ll be working to inform, learn, and focus on the LABMP.  I’ll be there, Stephen Box will be there, along with many others to facilitate the discussion.  We’ll briefly discuss the plan, and then promptly break into groups to discuss it more energetically.

This is your opportunity to engage in a free for all of ideas.  Together we can become better informed and more effective as a community in owning our Bike Plan!  Unlike the upcoming community meetings, sponsored by the city, this meeting will focus on no holds barred discussion by cyclists, for cyclists.  This is unstructured, knock down, drag out, nitty gritty discussion that will leave you bursting at the seems with ideas and information.  Coming out of it we hope to have a more focused, deep, and effective community critique of the plan for the community meetings.

Bring your laptop so that we can look over the plan together.  (It’s 600 pages, so we ain’t printing it!  SAVE A F*&%ING TREE!)

I hope to see you all there!

(tweet it you twitterers!)

And, you heard it here first – there’s two websites competing to be the number one resource on the LA Bike Plan.  No, it’s not SoapBoxLA and WSBS.  No, it’s not BikingInLA.  It’s labikeplan.COM, and labikeplan.ORG.  Check em both out, and compare and contrast!
