Please come to the Westside Neighborhood Council meeting this Thursday evening at 7 p.m.
There will be someone from the LA Bike Coalition discussing proposed bike lanes on Sepulveda, Westwood, and Avenue of the Stars -- something that is scheduled for hearing on February 19th.
We love cycling and want to create a bike network on the Westside, but anyone who walks or drives down Westwood between Pico and Santa Monica knows that taking out lanes, or parking, or creating a bus/bike transit lane (that was vigorously opposed on Wilshire) will necessarily reduce lanes, and motorists will "peel off" onto the residential streets to find the path of least resistance. This will not work for the community, for the businesses, or for the safety of cyclists.
In short, Westwood Blvd. simply can't handle this proposal, and even the local cyclists find the proposal unworkable.
Please come to the meeting and voice your opinion. At Westside Pavilion, third floor, Community Room A, behind the food courts.
