    LA's Bicycle Working Group released another edition Monday of its Backbone Bikeway Network.

    The maps were created as the "backbone" of a city-wide plan designed by bicyclists for bicyclists. Three maps were released over the course of a week as alternatives to the city's draft master plan for biking.

    The most recent map takes cyclists through the Harbor Gateway/South LA area.

    The "PeopleWay" system is designed to get cyclists across town as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    The map comes on the same day that the LA Timeslaunched a talkback question: Should LA give cyclists more space on the road?
