The South Bay Bike Coalition (SBBC+) is working on a Metro proposal to build new bicycle infrastructure from El Camino College to the Diamond/Prospect intersection. This will provide connectivity to the Beach and many schools. It is the hope of the SBBC+ that the safer paths created will encourage more cycling, especially by families and students, who will become future advocates for cycling. We also want to involve Redondo Beach and Lawndale residents, since the path will likely pass through their cities.
Anyone interested in becoming part of this process or wants more information can also contact me at SimEzzes@gmail.com
PSA from Beate Baltes
You can order free Covid Testkits. If you don't need them, order them anyway and give them to parents of school children. Needless to say that they are not available online until February. In other words, it is a pain to get them. Keep parents on the bike by saving them chasing these tests down in multiple stores.
Heads Up! We are going to introduce an easy ride for L4 on Saturday February 5. Details next week.
