My post for Flying Pigeon LA continues my extended rant on rogue council member Gil Cedillo and the need to look ahead to the election that's barely On the Horizon today, but that could represent a turning point for LA's District 1.

Meanwhile, on Orange 20's blog, I look at a delightful new pocket park that just opened up along the Ballona Creek bike path, showing that sometimes, We Can Have Nice Things.

On Orange 20's blog I note that sometimes, Noir Happens, as not one but two private detectives contact me in one day to ask about a mysterious crack n venice Beach's Main Street.

A dat Flying Pigeon LA I dance the mournful Sixth Street Shuffle in honor of yet another long-lost road diet in treacherous LA.

We're still on the Great York Boulevard Petition Battle this week, and it is pretty interesting in a neighborhood sort of way. But we all live in neighborhoods, right?

So you can view two more different perspectives on the matter atn Orange 20, in Here We Go Again, and at Flying Pigeon LA (with an update) in Petition Tennis, Anyone?

Orange 20 looks at Santa Monica's MANGo Madness, a Neighborhood Greenway with something fro everyone.

And on Flying Pigeon LA, I suggest that, since building more and more lanes has only made traffic worse, maybe for The Next Eighty Years we should build nothing but bikeways and transit lines, and see what happens.

On Orange 20's site this week, I tout the New Urbanism Film Festival Recap coming to Santa Monica on January 13th—except that now it seems the date may be changing. Keep an eye on one blog or another, and I'll let you know what it is as soon as I find out myself.

On Flying Pigeon LA's blog I post a summary of how to enjoy riding in the rain, now that El Niño has delivered on tis promise of precipitation. The inevitable pop-cultural reference was required for the story, entitled, of course, Riders on the Storm.

On Orange 20's blog this week, we ponder Which World Next?, as we explore the types of cyclists LA's often misbegotten bike paths serve, or think they serve.

And on Flying Pigeon LA's blog, I suggest that LA Let It Now Be Resolved that the city will finally stop pandering to motorists in an effort reduce congestion. Because, in case you hadn't noticed, we've tried that for eighty years and it's never worked….

On Orange 20's blog this week, I note that The Times Is on Our Side, with an article in the region's largest paper suggesting that we should use more data and fewer gut reactions in determining street safety policies.

Meanwhile, at Flying Pigeon LA, I recount a battle over whether cyclists might pedal or must simply walk their bikes across a narrow dirt-paved bridge connecting the horsey side of Burbank to Griffith Park, and wonder, Is This Really an Issue?.
