Ron K put this in the comments section and I thought it needed highlighting.

The case involving a woman whose car allegedly struck and killed a 37-year-old Yuma man two months ago has been referred back to the [...]
Several people have sent me this article from Thursday’s L.A. Times on the efforts there to start a ciclovia.
Imagine L.A. without cars. A town where people ride their bikes and walk in the streets, and the smell of tacos and veggie burgers drifts through the air instead of exhaust.
Sound like a pipe dream? Not if [...]
This year it is at the corner of Speedway and Stone in a large art gallery there. Lots of parking even for cars! SRSLY, you’re an idiot if you miss it.

Right now the most probable date is Sunday, May 2, 2010, although some other dates are under [...]
This just in from my friend and TBL Japan Correspondent, Sarah Jane:

It turns out that El Tour Saturday was my friend Paulus’s birthday, so I helped him and three other friends celebrate with a nice bike ride and picnic outside Sonoita. My second most favorite part of the bike ride was the Lightning Ridge Winery, which we came upon just a few miles into our [...]Read More..>>
Remember the olden days when the Tuesday Night Bike Ride used to leave at 8 PM and meander through residential neighborhoods, avoid larger streets entirely, and follow a considerably different route every week?
If you miss that, try getting there by eight tomorrow. Some of us have resurrected the ride as it used [...]
