Why I like bike-friendly Long Beach
Meet Katie Taylor who moved to Long Beach from Atlanta. Why did she pick Long Beach for her new hometown?
Over the past several months I’ve had the opportunity to talk to several people who have recently moved to Long Beacc–many in their 20′s and 30′s. When I ask them why they moved here, a common response is, “I like the feel of Long Beach. I love to walk and ride my bike. Walking or riding my bike to a restaurant or a local bar is awesome.”
Katie is one of the talented young women who recently moved to Long Beach. Her story illustrates why people are seeking out Long Beach and the value of creating both a bicycle-friendly infrastructure and a bike-friendly culture.
