[[image:b2wbikelifting.jpg::inline:1]]On May 17, about a hundred cyclists gathered at the Hollywood/Western pit stop for Bike To Work Day. A lot of these cyclists took the day off, or called in sick so they could ride down to City Hall to get their voices heard by our city leaders.

Stephen and I arrived at 4:30 am for the NBC's morning coverage of our Pit Stop, and Stephen Box was interviewed regarding bicycling issues, how to encourage drivers to be safer around cyclist, about the Jen Diamond $50.000 hit-and-run reward, and what the City Hall ride was all about.

The Hollywood Pro crew showed up with bagels and cream cheese and they set up a tune up station. Dan was helping with the registrations, Big Bike Dan set the sound, Mr. Rollers and John K. took some photos and the LAPD Bicycle Unit arrived at around 8:30 am to escort all cyclists to City Hall.
