Turning Point

Today could be a truly pivotal day for bicycling in the city of Los Angeles what with the City Council’s special bike-themed Transportation Committee meeting taking place at City Hall.

I spent the week mulling ways in which I could take the day off and attend, but it’s just not going to happen, dammit.

So instead I’ll have to settle for being there in spirit between being in the saddle to and from work.

In other news I’m but 28 away from pedaling past my 6,000th mile for the year, which means I should arrive at that milestone this evening somewhere around the Bicycle Kitchen, appropriately.

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."
