History of Co-ops and Civil Rights

Good article from Colorlines on the historical connection between cooperatives and civil rights movements.

“They pooled meager resources, doubled or in some cases tripled their influence, shared both the risk and the profits and gave each other a voice and a chance to get ahead.”

How Co-ops Helped Produce Foot Soldiers for Civil Rights

The Missing Piece: Protected Intersections

Check out this great video about how protected intersections (and protected bike lanes) keep people safe from “right hooks” and other collisions when biking or walking across intersections!  Hope to see these in LA soon!

YoCycle is moving to Sundays starting March 15th!

Start your Sunday mornings with sunshine, a relaxing bike ride, friends, and Yoga!
