And Away I Go

Seeing as I have to average 167.5 miles a month to make this year’s target, I’m off to a bit of a slow start. But getting back in the saddle with Friday’s night c-c-c-cold 33.5-mile ride up through northeast L.A. to Pasadena’s Rose Bowl and back, I finally kicked off my resolution to bike 2,007 miles this year. And as such you’ll notice I’ve dropped in a little Bike Mileage Tally off to the right where I’ll be recording every single dangitty-dang-damn mile that gets me closer to my goal.

In addition I’ll be routing each via the Gmap Pedometer Cyclometer site and posting the links to every single trek to be charted — no matter how big or small — on this dedicated Bike Routes page.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
