Bike Every Day In May: Ten Bridges Re-Ride


Back in September 2007 the now-shadow-of-its-former-self IAAL•MAF staged a ride that’s still talked about for being full of awesome: The Ten Bridges Ride.

And it was just that, a bike ride over ten of the L.A. River’s bridges: Washington Boulevard, Olympic Boulevard, 7th Street, 6th Street, 4th Street, 1st street, Cesar Chavez, Main Street, Spring Street and Broadway.

As part of my ongoing Bike Every Day In May endeavor I’ll be re-tracing that route tomorrow morning departing from Silversun Plaza (Sunset Boulevard and Parkman) at 7:30 a.m. Company welcome.

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."
