In January, Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti announced that City Hall and other downtown facilities would provide bicycle lockers, more racks, access to showers and a subsidy to City Hall staffers who ride a bike to work. Yesterday, Garcetti blogged that they have already won an award, the Rideshare Diamond Award, for their efforts.

In other bike facility news, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition is hosting a bike/walk tour that is open to the community at the Van Nuys Metro Orange Line Station. It is part of a plan to improve bike and walk access to 6 transit stations in Los Angeles County. The meeting will be held on Saturday, May 31st, 10am-1pm at the Braude building.

Don't work for the city or live or go near Van Nuys? There is currently no bicycle parking map, but LADOT does have an excel database of all the locations that is not published. However, they do have a bicycle parking page for basic information.
