Should L.A. give cyclists more space on the road? Share your thoughts

Ari logo In a region known for traffic-jammed freeways, a group of cycling advocates has developed a plan for a freeway system for bikes.

The Backbone Bikeway Network would create miles-long east-west and north-south corridors for cyclists along some of the county’s largest streets and heaviest-traveled corridors.

The network is one part of the plan offered by The L.A. Bike Working Group and was created as an alternative to the city of L.A.’s proposed bicycle plan.

What do you think about the proposed bike plan? Do cyclists deserve a larger chunk of the road? Can motorists share the road? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
