City Councilman Bill Rosendahl submitted a motion endorsing the Cyclists' Bill of Rights today. The motion, which was co-presented by Councilmembers Garcetti and Greuel, and seconded by Councilmembers Reyes and Parks, was referred to the council's Transportation Committee. The date of the committee hearing on the item will be determined by the chair, Councilmember Greuel.

The Cyclists' Bill of Rights (.pdf) was developed by the Bike Writers Collective, a group of bicycle activists (disclosure: LAist contributor Stephen Box is a member) and first endorsed by the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council. It also picked up endorsements from the Silver Lake and Atwater Village Neighborhood Councils this past week.

Box introduced the Cyclists' Bill of Rights to the Transportation Committee on Wednesday saying "Our streets are the new 'public space' and our ability to share that space is one of our greatest opportunities for revitalizing and redefining our communities."
