I’m pretty excited for the future of the LA River Bikeway and not just because I’m an optimist.
Now that Measure M has passed, there will be actual funding to build the valley portion of this bikeway which has to be at the top of dream projects for the 818.
Being able to bike uninterrupted from Griffith Park to Canoga Park will be pretty awesome and could possibly be the fastest way to get across the valley in rush hour.
While it’ll still be a few years until it is completed, this isn’t the time to kick back our heels and sleep it off until it’s built.
One of the few completed LA River Bikeway sections in Canoga Park.
Meetings on the path’s designs start next Tuesday and it’s important to keep a watchful eye.
When it comes to watching plans coming to fruition, you might say I’m from the “Show Me” state of Missouri.
Very rarely do cyclists get favorable news. It’s more like “work has been postponed” or “more funding needs to be secured”.
This is such an important project, cyclists need to show our passion for how important this bikeway will be to make sure no corners are cut.
Please come and get involved.
The first meeting will be next Tuesday night at the Encino Community Center from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The second meeting on the following Tuesday, December 13th, will feature the same presentation this time at L.A. Valley College at Monarch Hall also from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
As for me, you know I’ll be making it out to at least one of these meetings. This is too big of a project to pass up.
