Timelapse: Los Angeles River Ride Route Marking

For the fifth consecutive year, I’ve gotten up early the day before the annual Los Angeles River Ride and with my friend Stephen Roullier pedaled out to the Los Angeles River Center from Echo Park where we joined some like-minded volunteer route markers to help organizer Colin Bogart mark the overall route from Griffith Park and Long Beach with signs and arrows that will help guide the hundreds upon hundreds of cyclists will pedal the next day.

The section me and Steve and fellow volunteer Bruce did began at Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights down through Vernon to where riders will enter the LA River Bikeway for the rest of the trip to Long Beach.

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."
