Bike in LA? No problem…

(If you have Google Maps on your iPhone).

This morning I biked (on green buddy Scott Badenoch’s mountain bike, no less) from Hollywood Hills to Venice Beach for my live @greenopolis interview. It was fun, healthy, sunny—a great way to get to know this vast, lovely, ugly, diverse, rich, poor, magnificently visual city. Biking is still, sadly, rather unheard of in LA, at least for hour long trips. There’s few bike lanes, some pushy bad mannered car drivers and bus drivers—still, it was a real pleasure. iPhone in hand with Google maps, it’s easy.

Here’s the first bike lane I’ve seen in my whole week here—such a rare sight I had to take a photo of it.
