The Future of Bikes in Pasadena

If you're thinking about taking a bike to work or to do a little shopping, or if you're already pedaling around town, or even if you're a die-hard aficionado who bikes miles at a time, you'll want to help shape an update to Pasadena's Bicycle Master Plan.


The update will kick off with a community meeting Tuesday, Feb. 17, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Council Chamber, room S249 at Pasadena City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave.

The meeting, hosted by our Transportation Department and the newly formed Bicycle Master Plan Advisory Committee, will be open to the public, and comments and suggestions will be welcome.

See the existing master plan here or call (626) 744-7254 or email rdilluvio@cityofpasadena.net for more information.

Rich Dilluvio is a senior planner in our Transportation Department, oversees all the bike-related programs and is a pleasure to work with.

You'll find more info about bike programs here, including a video that tells the story pretty well.

Gosh..I hope this doesn't end up in one of those arguments to bring bikes down into the lower Arroyo. I side with the "don't do it" folk (or if the city has a gazillion dollars a road that sits above the flood channel till it reaches the lower Arroyo Golf course).

Bike trails in the lower arroyo have been off the table for a long time. This is really about getting around town on a bike.

Hey. I'll ride my bike when I don't risk getting run over when I do.

Don't people ride horses in the Lower Arroyo? Thousands of Pasadena people can ride bikes. Rich La Canada folks can ride horses.

Hey City Council, stop voting for La Canada and vote for me.
