Sunday Gonna Be Active!

Tomorrow morning is the City of Angels Fun Ride. Forty-plus miles of police-accompanied (i.e. yelled at ceaselessly by The Man to stay to the right and obey all traffic laws!) bicycling goodness. I’m opting for my Giant road bike (improved this afternoon with two new shoes and a fresh saddle) rather than The Phoenix because the course includes climbs up into Elysian Park, Cahuenga Pass and the Griffith Park “rollercoaster.”

Then if I have the energy to do anything after that I may meet up for the L.A. River Bridge Walk departing from MTA Gateway Plaza behind Union Station at noon.

P.S. Look for a post scheduled to go live tomorrow morning on about my fateful day in L.A. 15 years ago when the riots broke out.

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."
