Los Angeles adopts ambitious bike plan www.smartplanet.com/people/blog/cities/los
Yesterday, the city’s mayor Antonio Villaraigosa signed the 2010 Bicycle Plan www.labikeplan.org/public_involvement/
that would add 1,680 miles of interconnected bikeways, including a 600 mile freeway-like “backbone” network that would cross the city — a big improvement to the city’s current 378 miles of bike lanes.
Biking has become more popular in L.A., with a 50 percent increase www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-bicycle-p
in bicycle commuters in the past eight years. The question is, will the implementation of the plan keep up with the popularity? The plan would add more than 200 miles of bike lanes every five years, meaning the ultimate goal wouldn’t be reached for some 35 years, at least."
