Whew -- one year and one month after this campaign was successfully funded, the book has come back from the printer and all backer and contributor copies are in the mail. Here's the link for the book in case you'd like to nab a copy yourself: http://microcosmpublishing.com/catalog/books/3740/Thanks, Wheelwomen! So many of you poured your hearts into this project.
I had a great experience visiting and biking in LA. Using Spinlister, I found a sweet single-speed bike perfect for cruising all over the city. The man who rented the bike actually works with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and helped connect me with other people working in bicycle advocacy and urban planning in LA! It was great to meet a friendly/awesome bike advocate immediately upon my arrival to LA. I rode around Santa Monica, out to Venice, all over Westwood and through UCLA's campus, and over to Downtown and Koreatown. I was even able to meet up with a fellow Wheel Woman for a tour around downtown LA!
