Pedestrian, bicycle access planned for West Road gate

Plans are underway to build a pedestrian/bicycle opening into the gate that was recently placed across West Road as part of the Security Perimeter project. Pedestrians or people on bicycle should know that over the next 2-3 weeks there may be times when access is closed completely due to construction in the area. Until the access area is completed the gate has been left partially open to facilitate access. Employees should use caution in this area and obey any warning signs.

The LABikes blog is now publicly readable!

Please read and comment on the posted articles. For now, I have set the blog to not require registration before posting comments.

If you would like to submit a short article related to cycling in Los Alamos, please e-mail it to Scott at swwd_at_yahoo_dot_com or to Neale at neale-lab_at_woozle_dot_org

On the need for a Cyclist Blog for Los Alamos

Would a cyclist-oriented blog be useful for the cycling community in Los Alamos?

Here are some of the purposes that could be served by this blog:
  • Discussion of safe cycling practices and issues affecting the Los Alamos cycling community
  • Announcements of local events
  • Creation of a communication and/or social network for the LA cycling community, covering the range of cycling activities (transportation, exercise, on-road, off-road, etc)
  • Links to site of interest to cyclists, e.g. cyclist education, gear & clothing, training, etc.

The advantage of using Blogger for this purpose is that it provides a public forum for discussion in a way that interested parties can easily access and participate in real-time.

Please post your feedback on this idea.
