Vernon Open Streets

Filed under: — stan @ 2:47 pm

Today’s bike ride was for another Ciclavia-type event, this time in Vernon and Huntington Park. Our biggest complaint about the Ciclavia events is that they tend to be overcrowded, but I guessed that this might not be a problem this time, since only about two dozen people live in Vernon. People live in Huntington Park, but it’s a pretty small town, so I thought it might not be too crowded. And that’s how it worked out. We had giant streets almost completely to ourselves.

After taking the full tour of Vernon and Huntington Park, we headed back up into downtown. We passed my favorite building at Wilshire and Figueroa (“101 Times!”), then continued on up into Chinatown. We passed the theater that always has something funny on the marquee. Last spring it said something about “We lost our winter fat, and now we just have spring rolls.” Then we rode up and over the hill by Dodger Stadium, and then down to the river for snacks at Spoke.

52 miles.
