crowd at the beginning of the ride.
biking through downtown la la.
me going so fast that i'm distorting reality.
we got separated from the group because sarah's bike got a flat tire.
luckily the guy in the hat behind me was a super bike guru and fixed the flat in a flash. he started this organization called "the bike oven" which aims to cultivate a bike culture in la. they give lessons on bike repair and maintenance for free with the help of donations and he goes on these rides to help out people who are having problems and make sure things are running smoothly.
as soon as you get back to america we have to go on a ride through la. it's so fun to just cruise through all of the intersections and disregard the stoplights. being around hundreds and hundreds of people who just like to ride bikes is an amazing thing.
