Some cyclists want to strip Santa Monica of biking award
Santa Monica is known as a bicycle-friendly place, but a local group is demanding that an award given to the city by a national bike-riding advocacy organization be returned, claiming police and officials are not concerned enough with bicyclists' safety.
Here's more from the Santa Monica Daily Press:
"I don't think it's deserved," Thompson said of the award. "I feel the requirements for the bronze award are insanely weak."
