Bike Week L.A. starts Monday as an effort to get more Angelenos to ride their bicycles to work and school. 

L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin and transportation officials will be at Union Station to kick off the week-long event, sponsored by Metro. It's a series of activities intended to get more people onto two-wheelers.

On Tuesday, there will be the blessing of the bicycles at Good Samaritan Hospital. And Thursday is bike-to-work day, with refreshment stands set up around the city.

The councilman will also join the L.A. County Bicycle Coalition to release a report on bicycle use in the region. The report is expected to touch on how infrastructure in neighborhoods can help get more folks on bikes.

The City of L.A. currently has about 350 miles of bike lanes.
