Twenty Nine

Ballona

I don’t think I’ve ever actually taken a photo from the bridge that goes over Ballona Creek. I’ve ridden my bike over it many times and it’s usually filled with fishermen or people taking a rest from riding their bikes and often has a few cameras pointed out from it.  After spending a relaxed afternoon at Tanner’s coffee in Playa Del Rey, we departed back to Venice after the sun had already set. We barely caught the light as the high clouds were still glowing with a faded pink hue. The calm waters were silvery and gold with the reflection of the sky and the air was still and pleasant.

That’s Diana and her bike again in the middle and right. My bike is on the left, a custom built 2008 IRO Jamie Roy. I’ve had the bike for almost 5 years now and it’s seen both coasts of the USA. It started its life in Pennsylvania where it was my go everywhere, trackstanding, rush to class, skid in the snow  fixie on the streets of Pittsburgh. It’s even ridden through the streets of Manhattan and now lives as my daily driver in Venice Beach. It still adorns a collection of spoke cards and Polaroid photos in the rear wheel. Spoke cards are serious business people. Just don’t call me a hipster. You can see the details about my bike on the rather unique bike social media site, velospace.org
