Bike Co-ops Thrive in LA

Bike Co-ops Offer DIY Mobility
LA may be a car-dependent city, but even there folks are beginning to plan for a post-oil future. From an emerging Transition City Los Angeles through to a thriving LA bike culture, maybe the City of Angels won’t completely fall apart once the black gold stops flowing. Our friends at StreetFilms certainly seem to be impressed with the city’s plethora of bike co-ops, where folks can volunteer their time in return for bike parts, access to tools and expert advice. Check out the video above for an inspirational tour of LA’s Bicycle Kitchen, as well as its various spin offs, and click below the fold for more videos about liveable streets, smart planning and human-centric mobility.
