Turkey Day Ride

What was planned as a solo outing ended up being a magnificent 20-mile ride (route map) with friends Don and Stephen and Alice that took us up the LA River Bikeway behind Griffith Park, up the “rollercoaster” then up Mt Hollywood  Drive to its highest point before descending via Vista del Valle Drive back into Los Feliz and home to Silver Lake. It was a beautiful day for a pre-nom calorie burn of a beautiful ride and I’m glad I had great company with which to share it.  Happy Thanksgiving, indeed!

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."
