We started this blog to document the 5 weeks when we moved from San Jose to Los Angeles in late 2005 when Sarah got a new job at LACMA. Now the blog is Gary & Sarah's experiences in Los Angeles. We can't say we're "new" to LA anymore... but some things are still foreign.

Acura LA bike tour 2007
Los Angeles has this great bike tour which is held before the LA Marathon each year. Riders get to essentially ride the marathon course before the runners have at it. It's a great tour of the city on closed streets. Gary rode it this year... and I took a couple photos.
Starting out at the LA Memorial Coliseum. It's a little packed here. Over 10,000 riders showed up.

I think these guys were Canadian. We are heading back into downtown.
Did you know the Scientologists had a cycling team? Only in LA.
And, of course, the Japanese drumming team welcomed us back. It was a round trip back to the Coliseum. About 23 miles in total.
