Had a blast with a few friends riding around Wilshire Blvd. For CicLAvia April 2014, Downtown Los Angeles. We rode around all day, with beer breaks at Wurstkuche, Angel City Brewing, and Cafe Seoul in K Town.
What an amazing day, the weather was perfect, the sun was shining, and EVERYBODY was okay with a bicycle. LA is not a very bike friendly town, and the change was palpable, if only temporary.
It really gave me a renewed appreciation for the city, and I hadn’t been in downtown for a while. It was good to get out of my lil Tokyo Habit and have some K Town instead.
I think my favorite thing I saw was a kid being pulled by his dad. I didn’t get it on film, but the dad was struggling really hard, and the kid was pedaling his ass off. Both looked completely worn out, but both had HUGE smiles on their faces.
If you look closely at around the 39 second mark, you can kinda see Conan O’Brien. We ran into him, talked with him a little bit. Really cool guy in person. Spent time signing autographs and taking pics with anybody who would ask.
Man, what an awesome quintessential LA day!!!!
