Today could be a truly pivotal day for bicycling in the city of Los Angeles what with the City Council’s special bike-themed Transportation Committee meeting taking place at City Hall.

I spent the week mulling ways in which I could take the day off and attend, but it’s just not going to happen, dammit.

So instead I’ll have to settle for being there in spirit between being in the saddle to and from work.

In other news I’m but 28 away from pedaling past my 6,000th mile for the year, which means I should arrive at that milestone this evening somewhere around the Bicycle Kitchen, appropriately.
