OK, I sat here eating my lunch today, re-reading the GMR ride report threads. It's been too long. We must ride!
For the past few years, I've been part of the television crew that produced the LA Marathon coverage on KTLA. NOT THIS YEAR, BABY! New job, no need to get up at 2:30am to go work. So, instead, I want to get up at 2:30am to go RIDE! Seriously! Who's in? Wolfpack Hustle does a race every year taking advantage of all of the closed streets. Rumor has it they have a police escort this year. My thought is to let them roll at their 4:30am rolling start, then just tag along at the back. It's 26 miles of closed LA streets. I've seen it several times and it looks like a blast!
Here's the map:
I'm open to help flushing out the details. Share your thoughts. Good routes for the return trip, good parking spots, etc. Anybody only want to do 26 miles and has an idea of a "taxi" concept, speak up.
Date: Sunday, March 17th
Time: TBD - but the trip West will start around 4:45am
Who else?! AND NO KIDS HAVE SOCCER GAMES AT 5AM!
