Bicycle Boulevards

(see Bicycle Boulevard video below)

If Santa Monica had followed the recommendation of the writer of the Santa Monica Bicycle Master Plan to make Arizona into a bicycle Blvd, it may have prevented the errant car driver from ramming through the World famous Santa Monica Farmers Market on Wednesdays in downtown Santa Monica on Arizona.

See this video for more info on what a bicycle Blvd is. Note the barricades that block car traffic. Often those are place about every few blocks. And their likely would have been a set of them at the entrance to the downtown district on 4th or 5th street.

If you would like to see a bicycle Blvd on Arizona or on some of the other roads that were recommended in the Santa Monica Bicycle Master Plan contact Cycle Santa Monica and write to the Santa Monica City council to let them know.
