Mayor With Sling Booed

New, 13 comments

The city's official bike summit, underway today, is proving to be amusing, reports Southern California Public Radio. Mayor Villaraigosa, who took a tumble off his bike last month, was greeted warmly when he talked about adding bike lanes (he wants 1,600 miles of them) but things didn't go so great when he said he was heading to Sacramento to lobby for a law requiring helmets for all cyclists (guess that law doesn't already exist). No rotten tomatoes, but certainly plenty of boos hurled the mayor's way, reports SCPR. [SCPR]
