CicLAVia Time Lapse

Here’s a timelapse video of the CicLAVia ride from Sunday 21st April. (I’ve done one for each of the past rides as well, so search on “ciclavia” for them if you wish.) My thoughts about the ride were posted back on the day, and there’s lots of discussion at that post on some of the issues I raised, so go and have a look if you like, and feel free to join in. I did the ride on the Brompton, as usual, and this time I was accompanied by my colleague Krzysztof Pilch, who was riding one as well. We even saw a few others on the way, which was nice.

Also, I’ve not laid on some funky music like the fancy folk do, so it is quite silent. But there it is as a record of most of the 13-15 mile route from Downtown to Venice beach:

    This video collates and displays an excellent set of rear-end specimens among the Angeleno species.

    Yes, indeed!! 🙂 It is an unfortunate (but stable) angle to shoot from.

    Thought you might enjoy this: the first Open Streets Minneapolis event is this weekend, and will kick off with the US Brompton Championships! See exceprt from email below.

    The kick-off event at 10 a.m. will be the 2013 U.S. Championship Brompton bike race. The six-mile race using Brompton folding bikes will take place on a closed half-mile multi-block circuit starting and ending at 34th Street and Lyndale Avenue South. All participants must wear a sport jacket, collared shirt and tie.

    Fantastic! I wish I could be there for that! I love seeing pictures of those events. Thanks for the tip.

    You going?

    Unfortunately we had a big wind storm last weekend, which downed a lot of big trees and caused a lot of power outages. So I missed that one. I’ll definitely go to one of the other ones this summer, but sadly, no Brompton races then.
