L.A. Approves Incredible Bike Plan

Well, one thing you can say about Los Angeles is that they don't do anything half way. Someone made a comment on this blog a while back about maybe by the year 2015 we'll have four more miles of bike facilities within the City of Spokane. Okay, we're nowhere near the size of L.A. but get this: L.A.'s City Council just approved a new bike master plan that calls for 1,680 miles of interconnected bike paths!

The City of Spokane only has about 971 miles of roadway, so L.A. will have more miles of bike facilities than we have miles of streets! Crazy. But awesome.

Here's how they plan to implement this plan.
