I’m pretty sure I decided to make this a tradition from its inaugural run back in 1995. Fourteen bike tours done on five different bikes I’m still loving the annual event — with today’s being the best ever. I got a quick start at the begining and ran across the 21.5-mile course in a personal best time of 61 minutes. The weather was great, the course was awesome and The Mercy — on her first tour — performed beautifully.
Here’s to the next 14!
But in the meantime, here’s the inevitable pix.
Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. 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 laonstage.com, 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."
