Oh to ride a bicycle more...

In light of the LA Times article about Midnight Ridazz and its mention of the IAAL-MAF (under sporadic rides at the bottom), it would perhaps be an appropriate time to discuss the fact that I suck at reliably getting on a bicycle these days. I rode tonight up to Atwater Village and back, and the hill on Glendale blvd reminded me just how little time I've been putting in the pedals lately.

Given tonight's ride, two trips to USC and a sidetrip to the Wilshire Library Branch, I've ridden about 30 miles in the last three days. Sadly, I don't know that I could tell you the last time I had done that.

But enough complaining... The simple solution: Go ride a bicycle.

I can start by heading over to the shop to get some new bar wrap to replace the padding on the left side of my bars. It ripped and I've been riding without for a couple weeks.
