CicLAvia is probably the my favorite events in LA. I love how they are promoting active transportation and pedestrian roads for the people not the cars. I took an Uber to the meetup place and got there at 11 AM. Met up with skate crew then skated around the downtown Los Angeles for hours.
I realized that it was my first time to be in Downtown LA. Well, I did before on previous CicLAvia but it was just a tip of downtown. This time we got to skate through the city. Little Tokyo, China town and more. The city looks completely different in day time which reminds me of New York city. Not Chicago tho cause Chicago is too clean for this. We did entire routes and more. Weather was good too! Can’t complaint 70 something degree weather in October.
Love the skate crew too. Very nice and fun people to hang out with. Also had lunch together at the park close to the meet up place then skated little bit more. I got off around 3:50 PM. Checked out the grand central market before I took an Uber back home. I got a back pain at the end of the skate and it’s actually bothering me now little bit. I think I pulled my back muscle when I stretch on my skate before we start.
Back home, shower and a nap for about an hour. Walked out for a dinner and ended up at the Indian restaurant down the street on Wilshire. Good food. I enjoyed it a lot. It got me remind of the time when I lived with Jitendra in Chicago. Stopped by at Walgreens to get some snacks and ate them all on my way back to home lol.
9:39 PM now. Little too late to get into side project. will probably just go to sleep soon. Goodnight all! Hope your weekend was amazing.
