I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

No means go?

[email protected] are portraits of the City of Alhambra and the people who go about their lives here.

Javier Gutierrez, who takes pictures under the blog Street Vision LA, caught this image of a biker illegally riding on the sidewalk of Chapel Avenue and Main Street. 

The photo: In Alhambra there are no designated bike lanes and many riders like this one ride on the sidewalk even though it is against the law. Facing an expanding Main Street and an expected increase in traffic, riders are urging the City of Alhambra to make it more bicycle friendly, and some groups are intiativing conversation with city officials.

The photographer: Javier Guttierez takes photos under the banner of Street Vision L.A. Born in East LA, he's a long-time resident of Alhambra.

  1. I jog alot here in Alhambra and was almost hit by someone riding a bike on the sidewalk of Main st Yesterday.

    My first thought was “Isn’t it illegal to ride a bike on these sidewalks”.

    My second thought was “I would rather be hit by a bike than one of those 2-ton polluting machines that we call cars.”

    Designated bike paths sounds like a good idea, but I doubt the citizens will be willing to pay for it.
