It's 7:15 a.m. and we're at

Councilwoman Wendy Greuel's

Bike to Work Day pit stop at the Orange Line Valley College station (Fulton/Burbank). She was the only member of the LA City Council to host one of the

28 pit stops around LA County

. Unfortunately, she did not ride her bike like she did last year. Also, the staff was extremely excited over the three types of cream cheese they offered to the public.

Here we are at the Hollywood/Western Red Line Station/Pit Stop/starting point for the


sponsored bike rally/ride to City Hall.

Yes! Pin Wheel Helmet!

These were notes signed on a large petition that was later given to Deputy Mayor Larry Frank

The bike rally goes down Sunset Blvd. towards Hollywood.

Ahhh, look at those wonderfully cheap gas prices.

These were the most in shape LAPD officers ever. They also loved doing rear wheel skid stops.

There's something about tunnel riding. It's a great feeling when you are in there with hundreds of other cyclists.

Almost there!

Hey! That guy in the foreground is

blogdowntown's Eric Richardson



This is Doug Failing, the top guy for Caltrans in District 7 (which includes Los Angeles). He is a good partner for cyclists as he is more committed to including cyclists, public transit and pedestrians in all Caltrans projects.

This is Deputy Mayor Larry Frank. He lives in the Venice area and has committed to riding his bike to work at least one day this year. Who's up for escorting him?

We forgot this guy's name. All we remembered was that he was there in place of the Mayor's Transportation Deputy, Jaime de la Vega. Gee, we wonder why. Oh yeah,

he drives a hummer and no one likes him


Afterwards, many cyclists could be found at


in Chinatown for some 11 a.m. beer.
