E555 – Book Bike Trikes with Ryan Hashagen

We take a moment to catch up a year in 10 minutes, and then talk about the next 10 years to come. Join us as we learn about #boatmonth2020, proper hitchhiking etiquette, and how magic can happen when you put trikes, builders, and great ideas together. (Book Bikes anyone?)


Bay Area Begins to Roll Out E-Bike Incentives Under Clean Cars 4 All
From Streetsblog CAL: “Clean Cars For All is a California program that offers incentives to low-income people to surrender their older, polluting vehicles by helping them buy a clean electric vehicle. Transit passes were added as a “mobility option,” as well, and so were e-bikes and bike-share memberships. … The e-bike grants are for $7,500 and can be put towards one or more e-bikes plus necessary bike accessories, with any remainder used for transit passes in the Bay Area’s pilot program. Participants have to qualify by both income (at or below 400 percent of the current Federal Poverty Level) and residence (they must live within a zip code that has been defined as a Disadvantaged Community).”

Culver City Council approves 1.3 miles of bus and bike lanes
Via Urbanize Los Angeles: “The mobility lanes – which will be available for use by cyclists, scooter riders, emergency vehicles, and buses – will repurpose existing right-of-way along Washington and Culver Boulevards, linking Downtown Culver City with Culver City Station and the Arts District.” Found via BikePortland, who asks if we should starting calling these lanes “mobility lanes.”
