This week, Damien Talks with Wes Reutimann, the executive director of Bike SGV. The nearly-twenty minute interview covers a wide-range of topics from the Union Street protected bikeways plan, to an update on the 626 to, of course, Pokemon Go.
Union Street in Pasadena runs parallel to the more famous Colorado Avenue in Pasadena. The city decided not to put protected bike lanes on Colorado for fears it would create problems during the world-famous Rose Parade. Now, opposition is rising to the lanes on the still much-used parallel street.
As for the 626, the super open streets event will finally hit the street in 2017, after a postponement caused by the wildfires in June. A date hasn't been announced yet, but there is hope for February. Keep your calendar open.
