    Even though my planned trip to L.A. has been cancelled for this year on account of my having been robbed, I am hoping to do it when I have accumulated enough money again, perhaps next year.

    Thanks. It's quite a devastating blow; it changes a whole lot. I'll never fully recover to the point where I was; there's just not enough time in life for that.

    But, as hard as it is to do, I am...

    Tuesday was by far the best day of the year for riding for me. I did 53 miles in Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx. It was my best day of riding since September 28 of last year.

    I recently had a...

    The trip is off for this year. I just found out that I have been ripped off for multiple thousands of dollars in cash. Now I can no longer afford the trip, or anything else.
  5. Thanks for the comment! I had the trip...

    Thanks for the comment!

    I had the trip pencilled in on a couple of occasions; but I had to postpone it for various reasons. Most recently I thought I would do it next week, starting May 13. (The...

    For about 25 years I have been going to Arc de Triomphe in Queens, in Richmond Hill near the Brooklyn-Queens border. It is on Jamaica Ave. and 114th Street, a little east of the 111th Street stop on...

    Thanks a lot for your informative comments!

    I think that I will most likely use the train. As long as getting on and off at the key stations is possible (even with some day-part restrictions),...

    Thanks for the response! (ˇY por la comprensión!)

    So, are you saying that Dodger Stadium really is visable from the surrounding area? I was supposing that you cannot see it until you are right on...

    Right, the bike shop that I have my eye on is on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica. It used to be called "Downtown L.A. Bicycles", but it has changed its incongruous name to "Westside Bicycles". My...

    Ah, so that is similar to the ramps leading onto the Manhattan Bridge and the Triboro Bridge here in New York. Well, the homeless have to go somewhere.



    Sounds nasty. Maybe I'll pack some...

    Wow, I see some fixie-riders here in New York, and I can't figure out how they do it. But if you can do that out there, then I suppose that I'll be fine with a 15-speed (or whatever) road bike.

    I remember the first time I rode over the Queensboro Bridge. It was 1981, long before the dedicated bike/pedestrian path on the north side-road.

    At that time, both side-roads were in use for auto...

    If you're going to go over the Brooklyn Bridge,...

    If you're going to go over the Brooklyn Bridge, do it early morning (before 7am) or late at night (after 11pm). Otherwise the bridge's pedestrian lanes (which are separated from the bike lanes by...

    I didn't ride today because of the snow. But I ride all winter, barring days of snow or rain, or when there is too much ice on the ground (meaning that I have missed many days this month). I have...
  15. Yes, seriously. On the trip that I mentioned,...

    Yes, seriously. On the trip that I mentioned, there was a climb of 480 feet within two miles. To compare that to something out there, that's a bit less than the 550-foot climb in the first two miles...

    That's the spot I was looking at, where Hyperion Ave. (sorry, I wrote "Hyperion Road" before) crosses the 5 and the river. The pictures on Google Maps Street View didn't look promising. But I am...

    I am aware of the variegated nature of the Los Angeles area. Based on what I can tell from the bike layer in Google Maps and the elevation information on Earth Tools, it seems that a route involving...

    I realise that I could hug the coast. But, the thing is, I have to admit that I am not that interested in the beach areas; I want to see the city. So the tips about the river paths and other...

    Thanks for the tips. Please keep them coming. I hope to put them to use if I actually get out there.
  20. New Yorker with questions about L.A. hills

    Hi, there.

    As a New Yorker who has always been curious about L.A. and whose least favourite thing about his hometown is its winters, I am considering doing about a 5-day stay out there in the...
  21. Ah, yes. Thanks.

    Ah, yes. Thanks.
  22. New Yorker with questions about L.A. hills

    [My practice of posting in the Northeast forum about New York led me to erroneously assume that a post about L.A. would go in the Southwest forum. I should have looked more closely. Sorry about that....

    Thanks for the thorough description. But, for me, taking the bike apart and putting it back together -- twice -- is a bit much. I am not willing to do that.

    Instead of going through that hassle,...

    Thanks for the reminder that the Amtrak roll-on service might be coming to routes other than the Northeast Corridor. I have to keep on the lookout for that.

    You mentioned "take the PATCO train...

    The Hudson River Greenway is good as a car-free through route. (Though there are a few places where it is crossed by cars. And there are some red lights at which you have to stop in order to allow...
