When in Doubt, Ride a Bike

It was a great weekend in Los Angeles!

With all of the hoopla of Carmageddon, it was definitely a big weekend for public transportation and biking here in LA. In fact, I’ve never been more proud of living in LA. Late last week, it was announced that the biking group, Wolfpack Hustle, challenged JetBlue’s ridiculous $4 flight promotion between Burbank and Long Beach (two local airports roughly 40 miles apart) to see who would make it there faster. I put my money on the bikes and they didn’t disappoint.

I was, in fact, so motivated that I went home on Saturday night after a 12 mile bike ride with my friend Kaylee and purchased a brand new road bike. I’ve been meaning to get a second bike anyways. The good thing is that it’ll require some small upgrades to be in optimal shape for the triathlon, but it’s a much smaller impact on my wallet than previously imagined. Hooray.

To celebrate all of this goodness, I decided to go park my car in a safe spot so that I could bike to work ALL week. I’ve missed doing that the last three since…well, I can’t find a place to park my car during the day. What a lame problem to have!
