LABP: Jeremy takes on the Bike Plan Challenge (16/100)

By Alex Thompson

Jeremy Grant, who writes This Is Not A Bike Blog, took the Bike Plan Challenge I issued to write the introduction to LA’s Best Bike Plan, the bike plan authored by cyclists, for cyclists.  I loved this paragraph:

The Best Bicycle Plan is a proactive vision that will offer success for the whole community; a reduction in crime and hospitalization, and a growth in economy. This Plan will provide new facilities as a fortified foundation for the next generation of cyclists. It’s development, implementation and maintenance will be guided by the voice of the cyclists and neighborhoods it serves. The Best Bicycle Plan’s policies establish safe and equal access to the streets, education for law enforcement and drivers, multi-modal integration, support facilities and programs to increase ridership. Above all, this Plan establishes and protects the right to ride in the City.

Visit Jeremy’s blog to read the full introduction; if you’re interested in cycling in LA his blog is a good one to subscribe to.
