Villaraigosa to hold bike summit Aug. 16

L.A. City Mayor and Metro Board Member Antonio Villaraigosa plans to hold a Bike Summit on Aug. 16 at Metro to talk about how to make L.A. a safer, more bike-friendly city.

That comes as good news to local cyclists, who usually have much to say about improving conditions for bikes in car-crazy L.A.

Mayor Villaraigosa’s agenda includes a discussion about the agency’s efforts to “integrate cycling in the region’s rail and bus network.”

The meeting will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. inside the agency’s Board Room. Read the Mayor’s official news release below.
