Make no mistake, given the withdrawal I’m experiencing it is an addiction I’m battling. But at least I’m winning.

And the streak of consecutive days riding my bike endeth at 5 — faaaaar short of the 50 I’d hoped for. The following reasons are ALL excuses why I didn’t ride yesterday: a super early start to the day (had to be at the office at 6AM); driving (more like crawling) to Santa Monica’s REI and home after work to pick up the kayaks; voting; two glasses of wine with dinner.

Oh well, let’s try for 49 out of 50.

One/tenth down, 9/10ths to go! Getting a lowly tenth of the way toward my goal of 50 rides in 50 days was achieved with these commutes to and from work:

For my fourth of 50 consecutive days riding my bike I elected to head east on Sunset Boulevard to Chinatown before heading back through downtown.

I had places to go during Days 1 and 2 (LAPD Property Division downtown, and work) of my commitment to bike every day for the first 50 days of my 50th year. Today, I had nowhere to be.

So no one said anything about how far I was to ride every 24 hours. Thus on this third of those consecutive days, it was just about getting my ass off the couch, on the saddle and out to the streets for a short silly trivial twirl around the neighborhood whose sole purpose was simply to fulfill the obligation.

As part of my commitment to ride my bike every day during the first 50 days of my 50th year, I met coworker Gary at Union Station when he arrived via Metrolink train from Orange County. We then biked to the office that morning and back to Union Station that afternoon.
