Looking for a toehold in regional bike advocacy but don’t know where to begin? Try next Tuesday’s LACBC Civic Engagement Committee meeting convening this month at Johnnie’s Pizzeria (5757 Wlshire). Around a pizza and some beer come together the nicest bike advocates you’ll ever meet, and in a totally chill environment too. At the helm is Chair Ted Rogers, the keeper of collision records and the medal-winning linker behind BikinginLA (a must-read for any bike-minded soul). This is a politically-oriented committee, so don your thinking cap to come up with a winning strategy for our upcoming regional and local races. We want bikes on the mind of every candidate! On the agenda this evening: candidate questionnaire for city races in November; a L.A. mayoral candidate ride; and our favorite – establishing committee officers. We’ll be there!
