Timelapse: Ride 01 Of 50 (Downtown & Back – 05.29.2014)

I turned 50 today. Yeah… Rather than dwell on it I decided to tie that landmark achievement to some continuous daily activity going forward, and as such I came up with doing “50 Rides In 50 Days.”

This inaugural ride took me downtown to the LAPD Metropolitan Property Division where I took possession of something of a birthday present to myself in the form of a perfectly good iPad that I’d found in the dirt during a dog walk a block from my house back in February. After making my own attempt locally to locate its owner I turned it in to LAPD Rampart Division so that they could try. Three months later, the item’s owner hadn’t been found so the lost iPad became mine.

So this first of 50 rides is of me pedaling there, getting the iPad and pedaling back home.

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."
