Guest Post: The Revolution Will Not be Motorized
Death and injuries to cyclists on Pacific Coast Highway between Seal Beach and Corona del Mar are on the rise, yet there’s no apparent pause by those cities to take action as though it’s business as usual, but we’re fed-up and we’re not going to take it any more, so we’re driving this point into the political arena one city at a time where we will take the politicians to task and demand the concerns of cyclists and pedestrians are taken seriously so the carnage will stop, but until then we will continue shouting our invitation to every concerned soul to add their voice to the collective noise that we will rain down upon our elected officials and bureaucrats to deafen them into submission and jack them out of their complacency for our safety and their hostility against two wheel transportation until they recognize the “times they be a changing.”
Come add your voice to the noise and sign the petition.
The Revolution Will NOT be Motorized!
You will not be able to super glide, my brother.
You will not be able to gas up, spin out or cop out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on exhaust fumes and skip,
Skip out for gas fueled beer runs,
Because The Revolution Will Not be Motorized.

Luciano is one of the many bike advocates who have contributed time and energy into making Long Beach so bicycle friendly. Just a few weeks ago a cyclist was seriously injured in Seal Beach and city officials there have been slow to take action to avoid the dangerous conditions that continue on their streets.
