It had been a while since we grabbed our bikes and headed to the open streets for one of our favorite Los Angeles events, CicLAvia -- a function both of the pandemic and our busy schedules. But Nathan and I made it out to Chinatown on Saturday, and rode our bikes all the way to Mariachi Plaza and back, enjoying the sights and sounds of the city along the way.
It's been easy to get a little down on Los Angeles lately. There are a lot of frustrating things about the current state of our city. But being back out with thousands of other Angelenos and enjoying the beautiful day... it brought back some of the passion for LA that had been starting to wane. (Later that evening, we also hit a Lakers preseason game — quite a day in LA!) More shots from our Sunday in downtown:
