FIGHT THE [bike] PLAN!

11.4.09

Riddazz,

The powers that be in the City of Los Angeles have noticed the growing number of us hitting the streets and they don't like what they're seeing. Their response? "STOP THIS SHIT BEFORE IT GETS OUT OF HAND."

The City of LA has released a Draft of the proposed 2009 Bicycle Plan and it's a steaming pile of discrimination. The Draft Bike Plan is trying to take away half the lanes cyclists are already guaranteed by the 1996 plan that came before it and the document is clearly meant to be a stick in the spokes of cyclists everywhere. How are we going to fight this clampdown? We're going to get organized, duh.

The FIGHT THE [bike] PLAN ride starts at the Bike Oven, 3706 Figueroa, at 5pm. We'll start banging drums and getting our story straight so we can head up to Ramona Hall in Highland Park, 4850 N Figueroa St. from 6-8pm, where we've worked with City Councilmember Ed Reyes' Office (an ally to bicyclists) to set up an opportunity for your voice to be heard. The Draft Plan hasn't yet been approved and the City is currently taking public comment, and Reyes' office will be taking our comments to the city.

COME OUT AND DEMAND A STRONG BIKE PLAN THAT SUPPORTS BICYCLISTS AS AN IMPORTANT PART OF LOS ANGELES' FUTURE:

--Ask for en extension of the comment period, which was way under the normal 90 days given to all other plans like the Bike Plan. Right now we only have until November 6th; we deserve until January 10th, 2010.

--Look at the plan; it's a big document, but focus on the maps in the part of town that you ride most often. Notice how there are no lanes where you ride? Notice how everything is "proposed this" or "potential that" and not something strong like "future bike lane"? Notice how many routes there are (only signs, no lane paint) as opposed to bike lanes? Tell them what you want!

--Check out the articles being written about the plan. Get educated.

--Extra credit for attending any of the other workshops or writing Jordann Turner, Rita Robinson, Mayor Villaraigosa and your City Council Member with your thoughts on the Draft Plan.

After the ride we'll head back to the Oven to decompress, maybe burn some pinatas, and talk about what comes next.
