After local bicyclist shared their bicycling experiences within the City, the consensus was clear, Baldwin Park is simply unsafe due to inadequate infrastructure for bicyclists. The City Council were the first to agree that "the future of Baldwin Park is one that accommodates bicycling as a sustainable method to get from point A to point B." - Council Member Cruz Baca.
To date, only two cities have adopted the SGV Bike Plan. However, the fun continues in El Monte, which is the next city to consider the plan on Tuesday, November 25th. The council will also be voting on a Complete Streets policy along with a Memorandum of Understanding to enter into an agreement with BikeSGV to establish and manage the first bicycle cooperative and education center in the SGV. The Bike CoOp will be located at Fletcher Park immediately behind the Metro Bus Station and adjacent to the Rio Hondo bike path.
