Bike Week LA is in full swing

This week LA Metro is sponsoring Bike Week throughout the greater Los Angeles area. If you cycle get out and ride all week. Show Angelos what life could look like if more of us moved under our own power.

You will have the opportunity to engage with bike shops, retailers and our evolving mass transit system and experience some of the many resources around town.

Here's a small sampling of what's on tap this week.
