Ballona Creek Bikeway

In light of the recent attack on a cyclist riding on the Ballona Creek Bikeway and to counter the growing perception of the route as too dangerous to traverse, I’m extending my morning and evening workweek commutes to include the section where the attack occurred. There’s a definite criminal element accessing the route and I’m not trying to say there isn’t, I’m just trying to showcase that it ain’t 24/7.

Here’s a timelapse of how she looked Friday at 7 p.m. from Inglewood Avenue and the Mar Vista Gardens projects inland to Dusquene Avenue in Culver City:

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."
