North Figueroa Bike Lanes: Who are the One Percenters?

I spoke yesterday at City Council to voice my opinion for bike lanes, not just for the sake of cyclists, but for the safety benefits for pedestrians and drivers as well. I didn’t speak as eloquently as others, but I gave it my best. Cedillo’s response was the type of insult that will burn inside…

San Gabriel Mountains Roundup

If you haven’t already checked out my guide to the San Gabriel Mountains in the LA Post Examiner, check it here. I wrote this article out of love, but one that took a long time to flourish. Admittingly, I had no idea what these hills had to offer. until I took up trail running about…

Feel My Legs – I’m a Racer 2014

I was able to participate in exactly half of this year’s Feel My Legs and to put it short, I loved the event. While the 2014 edition was the 9th year of the race, it was my first. Even though it is a race with points handed out for placing in the top five, I…

Ciclavia – The Heart of LA

If you were able to manage the heat, Ciclavia was another edition in a long line of great events.  Before the official starting time, Mayor Eric Garcetti got things started technically in East LA city limits just across from  the Cinco Puntos Memorial.  Also on hand was Councilman Jose Huizar and County Supervisor Gloria Molina,…

Milt Olin Ride Follow Up

It’s already been two weeks since the ride, but it seems like it’s been months.  I have to say the ride was a success with all the media coverage it received.  With the three foot law just hours old, at least people are becoming aware that cyclists are allowed to have a stake in the…

Great Streets for Los Angeles: Bring it!

Great Streets or Greater Streets? That’s the question. I went to Garcetti’s presentation on short notice because who doesn’t want something more than just good streets? I must have looked excited enough, that they let me ramble on television! It was actually the first time I saw our Mayor speak in person and I have…

Biking to the valley guide – Part 1(Westside edition)

I’ve logged a lot of miles over Mulholland. So much so that I can properly spell Mulholland now. In the hunt for the most efficient route to the valley, I’ve tried every route possible. One thing for certain is you’re going to do some climbing. There are varying degrees of grade and elevation, but for…

More Bike Lanes a Comin’

Happy to see work being started on more bike lanes to a vital link to the valley. This adds another mile of bike lanes on Riverside Drive between Laurel Canyon and the I-170 freeway.  This is a logical addition that continues along the three mile stretch all the way to Van Nuys Blvd. At the…
