Dennis Crowley, a bicycle advocate and advocate for the rebuilding of a "bicycle freeway" from Pasadena to Downtown is dead. Crowley specifically was hoping to resurrect the 1900 Horace M. Dobbins’ California Cycleway, a wooden structure that was actually built in Pasadena but was demolished when the car came into fashion and we all decided we liked freeways better. He had hoped to see a similar, though probably not wooden, bike way built between Pasadena and LA.
