LA could build a city-wide network of protected bike lanes in a week — if it wanted to.

All of this effort was to turn a single parking space into a bike/scooter corral!

Mid City West’s “PARKing Day” in 2019 — a one day city-wide yearly event to transform parking spaces into other uses. This one was in front of Toasted and Roasted on Melrose.

If the city could do this with one block overnight, it means — if we wanted to — we could have a network of protected bike lanes across the entire city within weeks.
