Photos from Park[ing] Day L.A. in Santa Monica. Hosted by bicycling advocacy group Santa Monica Spoke with generous support from Cynergy Cycles, REI, and Swingers Diner, which is where we set up.
Parking day is an international event that began in San Fransico to call attention to the lack of quality public park spaces and the abundance of space we give for automobile parking, and flip them around.
Additionally Santa Monica Spoke wanted to illustrate bike parking and it's smaller foot print as a means to drive business. So we took over 2 parking spaces, and had a pop up park with adjacenent bike valet parking.
