The Los Angeles Times has had a running editorial series called “Roadshare” that is pretty compelling. If you are an LA or SoCal resident or you just want to read a great series on how a large city is coping with increased bicycles on the road…the triumphs and pitfalls, go no further than this page.
Although I am not a SoCal resident, I’ve watched LA’s slow transformation from congested car-centric city to burgeoning bicycle-friendly community from afar. It’s been a fascinating ride, for sure. The city has made great progress, but still have such a long way to go. The editorials and opinions in the Roadshare series help move that conversation along in a positive way, and many of the articles are worth a read.
