Lauren M. Whaley for 89.3 kpcc Breaks down the Bicycle Kitchen History and 5 Year anniversary event. In the video, as an added bonus, If you look close enough you get a glimpse of a TOLA sticker ;)
The Bicycle Kitchen is a non-profit that runs on volunteers and small donations. Anyone can visit the small space on Heliotrope Drive and Melrose Avenue to learn about bikes, fix bikes or build bikes. The Kitchen provides tools, teachers and used parts.
Between the Kitchen, group rides, bicycle advocacy and help from the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (which recently started a bicycle blog), there are an increasing number of two-wheelers popping up in this land of freeways.

My homeboy Andrew has just dropped a jem with this t-shirt, "Limited Geometry". I really dig it, and at $15 bucks a pop you can't beat that. A lot of other bike tees these days are getting a little out of control with their prices. It's nice to see such a good price for a good design. Plus it's limited edition, (only 100 made) so really, he could have charged what ever he wanted to but didn't. Pick one up here, or come to "The Takeover Race" this Saturday April 17th at O20, 130pm and win one. Andrew will be on hand, not just as a sponsor of the race, but as a filmer of it. He's been to almost every event in LA this year, putting it all down on film. Then the next day, dropping rad little edits. This guy works very hard. Big things from Andrew this year!
