Anyone else doing the City of Angels Fun Ride this Sunday?

I'm looking forward to it. With the LAPD motorcycle escort, it's a rare opportunity for us cyclists to LEGALLY blow through red lights and stop signs!

I hope you're doing the long one.

I did the short one last year - it is pretty fun riding through Hollywood et. al. The police on our ride had a bit of a napoleon complex going, herding us like sheep - I understand the earlier/faster ride was more easy going.

Have fun! It's all for a good cause...

Yup--doing the advanced ride...50 miles, and the website advises the LAPD motor units will keep the pace at 15-18 MPH.

That should be fun!

Bring your comfy tires, the roads aren't what I would describe as "smooth"
