This week is Bike Week LA, an annual event designed to remind Angelenos of the joys of two wheels and to encourage us to ditch our cars and pedal instead. Yesterday, cyclists attended workshops for those interested in building a new bike or fixing an old one, and this morning marked the 10th annual Blessing of the Bicycles at Good Samaritan Hospital. 

Los Angeles has some long-term plans to make this city more friendly to cyclists.

Tim Fremeux, Department Of Transportation bikeways engineer, joins the show to fill us in on how LA is working to make city streets safer for bicyclists.
