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.
