Is Long Beach is getting hipper by the day? Via the LA Times: "At a time when cities are cutting expenses across the board, Long Beach has raised $17 million in state and federal grants to improve its bike system through traffic improvements, education and bike share programs. In the next six months, the city will be resurfacing 20 miles of streets to include new bike lanes, part of a plan that includes painting and paving more than 100 miles of bike infrastructure." There's been a 29% increase in cyclists on 2nd Street since that green stripe sharrow lane was put in.
