Bike Week Over in Pasadena and LA, But Glendale’s Bike Month Cruises To Big Finish

Bike Week concluded in Pasadena and LA, but Glendale is still hosting May events (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week) to promote safer bicycling and walking. The big finish: Charlie Gandy, liveable communities advocate and Long Beach Mobility Coordinator, will appear at the Central Library Wednesday night to discuss recent bicycling and pedestrian improvements in Long Beach and how Glendale could adopt them.

Tonight, the mountain bike documentary Klunkerz will be screened at the Glendale Central Library at 7 p.m.; earlier, at 6 p.m., the major agenda item on Glendale’s Parking and Transportation Commission meeting will be preliminary ideas for updating the city’s Bicycle Master Plan.

Tuesday, the Central Library’s regular program of weekly 2 p.m. screenings will feature another bike-themed film, The Goonies.

Wednesday night, 7 p.m., Charlie Gandy will be at the Central Library for the final 2010 Glendale Bike Month discussion. Earlier documentary screenings and discussions (if you missed them, you missed out – make sure to attend Gandy’s talk!) have shown how citizens and officials in various cities worked to create safe and welcoming spaces for bicyclists and pedestrians. Gandy will focus on achieving this goal in a large Southern California community.
