Building a More Bikeable San Dimas

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.

John F. Kennedy

A founding member of the La Verne Bicycle Coalition and local bike advocate, Doug Strange talks with me about cycling culture in San Dimas and surrounding areas. Doug has a wealth of knowledge about biking, and he talks with me about what a more bike-friendly city could look like and what it would take to get more people out of their cars and on their bikes. As am someone who loves biking, I’m not the most confident rider around. This interview gave me a lot of inspiration for riding my bike more in 2021–and I hope it does for you too!
