Life Without Wheels: Chronicle of a Car-Free Lifestyle

Well, well, well...Tarfest "Marathon"...

So I push myself out the door, crank up the tunes, and head West on 4th towards La Brea. (I'm going to skip over the part where I almost ran over a pedestrian because he didn't look both ways before crossing the street and stepped out RIGHT in front of me, while I was going at least 15 mph. NOTE TO PEDESTRIANS EVERYWHERE: When you were little, your mother or father or someone taught you to stop and look both ways before crossing the street FOR A REASON! Okay, enough said.)

So heading West on 4th, waiting for the traffic light at La Brea to change and let me turn left and head down to cross Wilshire, but OF COURSE, there's a marathon that has Wilshire closed off at La Brea. Freaking A!

Rather than bike down to see if I could cross (which, if I couldn't would make me late to class) I turned around, rode back to Highland, and cut South to 8th Street and across to La Brea. Does anyone know a blog or twitter account out there that lists all the possible route issues for bicyclists in particular?

Well, tonight I need to do laundry, so I'll update you on what it's like pushing a massive cart of clothes to a laundromat. Maybe there will be pics too!

Update: I'm in for the night, everyone. I'll tell you about laundry tomorrow...
