Good Magazine is funding proposals for the LA/2B Challenge, where you can imagine an itinerary for your ideal car-free day in LA. I have submitted an idea where participants can learn more about urban wilderness spots in Los Angeles.
If I win, I will be looking for participants (you?)- leave a comment if you are interested!
You can vote for my itinerary here:
