Caltrans Comes to Visit

Yes, the Bicycle Coordinator of Caltrans district 7 will come for a visit. As a preparation, we created this map with some of the bicycle circulation issues known to mankind. UCLA has never much cared about what we have to fend with on our way to campus, despite a very direct language in the UCLA Bicycle Masterplan which demands improvements on access routes as the first priority.

This map is interactive and open for all collaborators. Please click on this link to go to the Google Maps page, then click on My Maps and log in, and add your placemarkers with comments! Use the magnifying tool to place markers with precision and add description. This is a unique chance to get this looked at! Take note of of the specific dangers awaiting the cyclist, and refer to bicycle accidents you happen to know of.

This is a fantastic project. Westwood is one of the scariest places I've ever ridden a bicycle, yet the potential for bike-friendliness is high. I wish you all the best.

Hi - new to the site but I had a question. Been trying use bikemetro to figure out the best ride to ucla from beverly/la brea but it seems to be down. Whats the best way to avoid wilshire without having to use Santa Monica blvd to get to westwood?

Thanks! UCLA really needs to do something about this mess.
