My bike is lighter and faster when my ride is the first thing I do for the day instead of the first thing I do after working all day.
Some things I see on my usual ride by approximate distance from start:
Mile 1: Bob Hope’s house
Actually, for the most part I see the wall around Bob Hope’s house, but you can see it when you get to the gate. Toluca Lake is currently fighting to stop demolition on the property.
Mile 2: Warner Brothers
The mural at Warner Brothers changes. The image above was how it looked in 2003. In 2009 it was redone with a focus on superheroes (but Daffy & Bugs still showed up).
The coolest thing about this version: It’s hard to see in the daytime, but at night the heroes were fairly dark and villains were projected across the bottom!
Now it’s a Teen Titans Go! mural. It’s got a lot of fun comic book in-jokes, but I miss the villains.
