Horace Dobbins was known for building the California Cycleway from Pasadena to Los Angeles. Horace Dobbins had the exclusive idea of incorporating a bicycle tollway from the Green Hotel in Pasadena to Los Angeles. This idea was brought to mind on 23 August 1897. Unfortunately, the innovation came to a halt once the invention of the automobile had come around. Although the Cycleway stopped being used, it was transformed into what is now the Arroyo Seco/Pasadena Freeway.
