A couple of pics from my morning commute...

Decided to take some pics when I skipped the bus on my way to work last Monday.




This bike path is parallel to the San Fernando Valley Metro Orange line. Most of the time I'm on this path is at night so seeing it in the daylight was a nice change.


And this is the Los Angeles River in Canoga Park. Isn't this the saddest thing you've ever seen? There's barely any water, just a bunch of slimy garbage. They've been trying to improve it, and restore it back to it's original beauty, but it's still going to take a long time before that happens. As it is, the San Fernando Valley, while it's still a part of the City of Los Angeles, does not get as much attention as the part of Los Angeles proper (over the hill). But then, that's a whole 'nother blog...

Hey Paula,

I enjoyed seeing your reasons why you love riding in the city in the most recent Urban Velo. I'm visiting LA in July, bringing my bike, and planning to ride as much as possible. I would love to find and ride paths like this... is there a good map or other resource for navigating LA by bike?

And, I agree. That river looks like it has seen better days.

Thanks,


phillip
