LGB and the Black Water Bottle of Doom
Little Green Footballs is one of the best news, and opinion, Blogs on the internet, and I don't visit it near as often as I should.
The reason is simple: There is just too damn much worth reading. I'd be worried I'd never get off the site!
However, tonite I came across a post, and the resulting 300+ comments it inspired ( which I'm gonna wade thru, a little at a time, simply because I'm curious ) that was quite interesting, and amusing.
I didn't know Charles Johnson is a Little Green Bicyclist!
As he writes, on the 12th:
Today’s ride: 54 miles, south to the Palos Verdes Country Club circuit, down PV Drive North at 34+ mph, then back up north to the Santa Monica pier, before returning to point.
54 miles! I'm impressed!
Palos Verdes Drive North is a winding road through a portion of the hills of the Palos Verdes Penninsula, and has a companion known as PV West that takes the traveler along a route overlooking the Ocean, eventually into San Pedro.
During my recent vacation when I rode an almost 50 mile round trip from Seal Beach to Torrance Beach and back, I began the return by riding PV North south and found it most enjoyable ( I'll be writing about this whole trip soon ).
I plan on riding the Beach Bike Trail from Torrance, north to its end near Malibu, and it looks like Charles could tell me a thing or 2 about attempting such a journey.
He includes an amusing picture of his "Black Water Bottle of Doom", and I had to laugh because if that puny thing deserves the "doom" designation what should I call my 100 liter Camelbak? :-D
