I've always wondered if my commuting by bike 15miles across LA was actually faster than driving. Last night I had found out that at least part of it is.
I was riding down Santa Monica Blvd and a bright new bright yellow Fiat 500, with dark haired female driver passed me at La Cienaga. This car stood out because it was a bright yellow the Fiat 500's are still pretty rare. She was also heavy on the revs so it brought a lot of attention to her.
Shortly after she passed me I continued on my usually route and turned off the street we were both on, eventually my route meets back up with Santa Monica Blvd, but I don't take it the whole way. 5.5 miles later, when my route meets back up at a stop light, I roll up to the stop light and stop, and a few moments later, there she she is. Same Fiat 500 as 5.5 miles earlier. We both gave each other a look and went on our way.
