Even in a notoriously car-dominated city like Los Angeles, people are fighting for better accommodation of cyclists. In fact, as Joseph Prichard explains in GOOD, LA could be a haven for bikes.He writes:
Despite its reputation, L.A. is home to a large, diverse, and ever-growing population of cyclists. With pleasant weather year-round, mostly flat terrain, and an easily navigable street grid, L.A. is in many ways suited to cycling.
Still, the obstacles and dangers, he concedes, are very real. Better signage, however, could open LA's car-centric grids to bikes and, in the process, build a model for other cities looking to encourage two-wheeled transport.
