I have to admit, it was pretty cool to hit the roads for the LA Bike Tour yesterday to the sounds of Randy Newman's "I Love L.A."
"Century Boulevard? We love it!"
15,000 bikes taking over the roads already closed for the Marathon later in the day - a great sight! Of course, only in LA could you sit in traffic on the freeway at 5am trying to get to a bike ride... but no matter. We watched the opening fireworks from our vantage point on the 110, and hit the road a little after 6am with all the other people who were stuck in traffic and also missed the opening. Throughout the route, families stood on corners or in front of their homes, cheering us on in the early morning. Can't wait to do it again next year!
