Ride Figueroa & CD 1 Candidate Forum

February 4, 2013
Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 10:30pm

Ride Figueroa is an LACBC East Bike Ambassador campaign designed to educate and inform folks in Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Cypress Park, Mount Washington, and other surrounding areas about a proposed bike lane on Figueroa between Colorado and San Fernando. This proposed project is part of the 2010 Bicycle Master Plan and is meant to connect to a larger network of bicycle paths, lanes, and routes for everyone to use. This particular project may require the removal of a travel lane to accommodate for these enhancements.

Here are a few ways you can take action:

1. Join us on a ride and invite your friends! Ride Figueroa! We've set a date for this ride, and it is Sunday, February 10 at 10:30 AM. This ride will end at Livable Streets Candidate Forum for CD 1 at Occidental College before 1 PM.

Ride Figueroa
When: Sunday, February 10; Meet at 10:30 AM
Where: Greayer's Oak Park (at Marmion Way and Figueroa - map) - across the street from the Bike Oven in Highland Park.
RSVP and spread the word through our Facebook event.

Livable Streets Candidate Forum for CD 1
When: Sunday, February 10; 1 PM
Where: Occidental College's Herrick Memorial Chapel Lower Herrick Room - 1600 Campus Rd, Los Angeles, 90041 (map)

On March 5, you'll be able to vote for a new Mayor for Los Angeles, as well as City Council Candidates. If you live and are registered to vote in Council District 1 (see map), we hope you'll learn more about the folks running to represent you. In order to get their views on transportation and livable streets, we are co-hosting a candidate forum with Los Angeles Streetsblog, Los Angeles Walks, and Occidental College's Environmental and Urban Policy Program this Sunday. Gil Cedillo, Jose A. Gardea, and Jesse Rosas have confirmed that they will participate.
