Bruce Sahud commented on How do YOU #bikeLA? 2017-07-27 17:11:04 -0700I commute from 9th and Gramercy to LA Technology Center where I work on Washington Boulevard and 8th Ave. I also ride Venice Boulevard to Pacific Resident Theater every Saturday. I ride to Larchmont for the farmers market and to west Hollywood to visit friends. I don’t own a car. I don’t want to own a car.
I recently traveled to Colombia and Mexico and was amazed to see their cycling infrastructure growing more than here. During my travels, I met many Dutch and Danish travelers who described their mainstream lifestyle centered around cycling.
I feel strongly about safe streets, vision zero as my mother was a victim of a drunk driver and she suffered for twenty years after the accident.
I can’t understand how those living in a cold climates like Copenhagen and Amsterdam can make cycling a way of life while we have the best climate and mostly flat terrain— LA should be the most cycling friendly city in the world!
Finally, I don’t think we’re going to get out of climate change without dramatic , mass change. Separating one’s recycling ain’t enough. People have to unite, and make sacrifices the way we did in world war II.
Where do you ride & how often do you ride?
