The one-way jaunt is only a 1.5-mile leg, but in the spirit of using a bike to save on gas, think of the electric green lane as an easy introduction to riding throughout Downtown.

In Los Angeles, it was the day our library burned and our earth stood still. Sometime after the library opened at 10 a. m. on that sunny day, a fire was set somewhere between novels by Robert Coover and John Fowles. It quickly got out of control and began a terrible trip west, through the magazine pool, the map room, the Social Science stacks, the Science stacks and into the Patents Room. It finally belched obscenely out of the windows looking over the library parking lot where Maguire Gardens now sits. Theories pointed toward a would-be hero/ arsonist who set the fire and then hoped to put it out to impress people. Instead, the tinderbox qualities of the overburdened 60-year-old stru...
