L.A.'s Department of Transportation (LADOT) has installed a new bike corral, the first in downtown Los Angeles. It's on the east side of Main Street, just north of 5th Street, right in front of Peddler's Creamery, where the main attraction is yummy "bicycle-churned ice cream." And there's more - in addition to the bike parking there's a fix-it stand with pump and all. According to LADOT Bike Program Instagram, Councilmember Jose Huizar will be there will be at an official opening celebration ceremony today at 4 p.m. If today's Metro committee meetings end early enough, Streetsblog L.A. will be there to enjoy a scoop or three.
