Cycling chaos in LA!

The peculiar looking dude in the picture here invited me to go to CicLAvia last minute and I decided to go.  Turned out to be a great decision!

Roads in downtown LA were closed off to cars to leave a nice urban path through the concrete jungle.

The main reason why the peculiar looking dude mentioned earlier wanted to go was so that he could meet his idol…  Who is this guy?  To be honest I wouldn’t know who he was had I walked by him on the street but there was a sign outside the bike store in which he was giving a speech about making cycling a religion...  It was indeed the one and only, the honorable, the holy BIKE SNOB of NYC.

This guy throws down the pragmatism and the sarcasm one-two-punch!  I’ve already read his old book between my visits to Barnes and Nobel but decided to patronize him and get a signed book, probably my first literature purchase (done on my own free will) in decades.

On the bridge across the 101 freeway there was this DJ group blasting house music.  BOOM!
