The Size Of The City Of Los Angeles

The Size Of Los Angeles
I like how Manhattan nicely fits in that leg extending south.

The size of the city impressed itself upon me in 1997, when I did California AIDS Ride 4. I had come out from Boston with my friend Michael and our plan was, after finishing the AIDS Ride in West Hollywood, to spend a night and then bicycle out to Palm Springs. A look at the map, however, told me that would be a two-day ride and the first day would be nothing but solid urbanity. Not fun. So we decided to take the Metro out to San Bernardino and bike from there. Way better.
