Khurram at Manhattan Beach, California June 2004

(above) Manhattan Beach, facing South towards Palos Verdes hills peninsula. There is a bike trail that hugs the coastline. This place is roughly 7 miles from my house in Gardena. Bike-travel-time: < 0.5 hrs (one-way) . You can see my bike -- which I exclusively use for transportation -- has been revamped quite a bit. I added a cycle computer to track speed and miles (and calories burned). Lot's of safety features added, too, such as white and red LED-based head- and tail-lights; they blink like a Christmas tree! This sound nuts ... but LA traffic is nuttier. That said, the public transportation system in LA is excellent; one can take bikes on buses and trains. Visit my newly-created bicycle commuting, touring camping and safety site for more information.
