Willie Manipol Jr commented on How do YOU #bikeLA? 2017-10-05 10:37:44 -0700I live and love to ride/walk/run through Foothill communities just north of Downtown LA. There have been 10 deaths (cyclist/peds/motorcycle) in my community over the past 2-3 years. The last was in Nov. 2016 when a cyclist lost his life riding home from dinner. There were NO BIKE lanes at the time of his death. The City finally installed much need bike lanes in 2017 on this 1/4 stretch of Foothill Blvd. The Bike Lanes have been met with much opposition from local residents. But has been welcomed and praised by cyclists, joggers, and pedestrians that use this stretch as a thoroughfare to the other Foothill communities welcome it with open arms! The residents seem to believe the bike lanes are dangerous to the cyclists who use them. I now can enjoy the local scenery, mountain air, trails, and roadways the Foothills/North Valley provides. Come join us!
