It’s Raining in LA

10 Feb

After days of non stop rain in Vancouver, I cannot help but think of drier climes, images of figs, palm trees, and sunny beaches float through my mind. Ah yes, down with biking in yet another Pineapple Express, it’s time to move to Los Angeles!

Talking LA, this weekend an article in the Economist caught my attention. It was about the great lengths LA’s rich and famous go to to bypass the enormous traffic jams the “city” suffers from. For those who can afford it, the options include paying a chauffeur to drive you around in a built out GM suburban mega SUV, complete with office, TV room, and bathroom on board – a must if one is stuck and no loo is nearby. The vans include AC and curtains to block out the ever present pesky LA sunshine.

Some of the mega SUV’s even come with built in fitness bikes and baths, so you can get your ride in while being driven to the office. I mean, why bike to work in one of the world’s most perfect climates for cycling? That would be too simple…

    The urban planning and mindset of the way things are in LA has been so perverted and bizarre for so long, most people don’t even have the slightest idea of what’s natural, much less for the common good (if you ask most Angelos what that means with respect to this they’d probably say “lower gas prices.”)
