Pirate bike lanes in LA

In this month's Bicycling magazine, there's a good article on a group of renegade cyclists in Los Angeles who have taken to painting their own bike lanes on some of the city's dangerous and long bridges.

The article says the cyclists are frustrated with the city's bike plan that promises much but has delivered very little.

I totally sympathize with these guys and I wouldn't characterize this as "renegade" behavior, but more like civil disobedience.

We cyclists pay taxes; parts of the road should be our's as well, especially when the government wants us to ditch our cars and try alternate methods of transportation.

Unfortunately the article isn't available online, so if you see the magazine in print, you should pick up a copy.

  1. I hesitate to applaud pirate bike lanes - but what a great idea!
