California Cyclists Are About to Get Three Feet of Breathing Room

A new law mandates that drivers give cyclists a three-foot buffer and "slow to a speed that is reasonable and prudent" when passing. About time.

Happy Bike Week, L.A! Bike from Work (to Beer) on Thursday

It's Bike Week here in Los Angeles. Among the activities: a bike from work event at Angel City Brewing with GOOD LA.



It's Bike Week here in Los Angeles which means there's no better time to strap on that helmet, squeeze into some Spandex, and try out a few of L.A.'s new bike lanes. But this week also serves as a perfect mid-month check-in for our 30-day GOOD Challenge to stop driving so damn much. With only 15 days of May to go, can you find ways to bike, walk, or take transit instead of driving?

To keep you motivated, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition has plenty of two-wheeled activities happening all week (as part of a bigger roster of activities happening all month, in fact). From Tuesday morning's Blessing of the Bicycles at Good Samaritan Hospital to a Wednesday morning ride through downtown (meet at Union Station at 8:00 a.m.), there are lots of ways to show your support for biking in L.A. Plus, Thursday is Bike to Work Day, and if you pledge to ride to work online you can be entered to win prizes like an REI cyclist kit or a gift card to Target.
