L.A. Bike Trains Offer Alternative Transportation Option
A new grass roots project is starting in Los Angeles to help people navigate the ins and outs of traffic through organized group bike commutes. L.A. Bike Trains has groups ranging from five to 10 people and they are led by an experienced conductor who serves as a guide. First timers have to own a bike and are picked up at their houses after having hand signals explained to them. The biggest obstacle to the bike trains so far has been safety, as collisions with cars is always a big concern. Bikers are hoping that with enough adoption, bike lanes can be a legitimate possibility in the future.
