What a view! But the ride up La Brea was treacherous dodging cars and hipsters. Man does Los Angeles need some urban bike trails! See map of LA and its bike trails. Ouch.
I think we should have a ‘walk / bike grid’ with dedicated trails every mile east to west and north to south. It would take cars off the road and encourage good exercise and green commuting.
What is YOUR city doing to accommodate bikers and provide a more ‘green’ environment for those who want some exercise or just want to go out for some fresh air? Would our representatives even listen to our requests?
Join the conversation!
Where are all the bike trails?

This great article on 4 Reasons Men Should Not Tuck in a Shirt really made me laugh… and then I thought, “what the heck have I been doing all these years?”.

I had a chance today to sit down and talk with former Houston mayor Bill White and his wife Andrea yesterday. I interviewed them for a tribute film on some super-philanthropist/activists in the Houston, Texas area. We talked a lot about the importance of empowering our youth through education specifically in the areas of math and science.
And when I left this extraordinary man’s house, all I could think about was how in the heck does someone like this lose the Texas governors race to Rick Perry (a creationist who has held the Austin statehouse 10 years – longer than anyone in history)
Isn’t teaching “creationism” illegal? How can the person holding the highest office in the Lone Star state espouse this kind of anti-science?
You can learn more about Mayor White here.
You should also check out this interview he gave to the show InnerViews on the local PBS affiliate in Houston:
Have a great weekend.
So excited to be entering 2011. With a new year, comes new inspiration, dedication and creativity. To that end, Noam Dromi and I will be providing a new level of insight, conversation and worlds of fun through regular postings, interviews and contributions from our correspondents at large. It’s going to be epic!
Anyhoo, that’s it for now… Just wanted to say hi and welcome everyone on to the ride to come!
