Los Angeles will finally get a bicycle corral, thanks to a unanimous vote by the City Council this afternoon. A pilot project funded by the business community and local neighborhood council, the corral will hold up to 20 bicycles in front of Cafe de Leche on York Boulevard at Avenue 50.

"We expect that this will be a success and that people will want to have" corrals in their neighborhoods, said Councilman Jose Huizar, who wrote the motion. "Hopefully the Department of Transportation could find additional funds should we expand this... When you make it more convenient, both for businesses and customers alike, that's when people are going to start using bicycles more often."
