New Bike Corral: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at Cafe De Leche!

So sorry for the lack of posts but we do have some great things to share with you to make up for the wait!

Last Friday February 18th, 2011 was a historical day for Cafe de Leche and Highland Park! On this memorable morning, CDL friends and family came to celebrate the public opening of L.A.'s very first bike corral, an efficient and inexpensive bike parking system which can hold up to 10 bikes at a time. It has been a popular and convenient system for bike friendly cities such as Portland and we are thrilled to finally see it enacted in Los Angeles, and wonderfully right in front of our cafe on Ave. 50 and York Blvd.! Also coming to join us for opening ceremonies were bicycle organizations and clubs such as the LA County Bicycle Coalition, our good friends at Flying Pigeon, and C.I.C.L.E. who organized mass rides just for the occassion! We are so proud of our very own cafe co-owner, Matt, who along with City Councilmember Jose Huizar, advocated for this great sustainable and community transportation program.
