City of Angels Post Ride Update

As you may have read, Moe and I rode the City of Angels Fun Ride sponsored by Volvo and KHS Bicycles. This event was my first real road ride since I was about 14 years old. There were about 2000 riders and we were escorted by the police through out Los Angeles, Hollywood and other surrounding cities completing a total of 44 miles.
 

Here’s the start and finish line
 
Here’s Moe, our friend Robert “The Robot” and RL (I’m not fat, I’m Samoan-JK!)
 
 
After the ride we hung out where they were doing the raffles and had the sponsors pimpin’ their stuff. We got a chance to hang out with Vince Calvillo of KHS Bicycles. While we were there, Vince showed us some of their coolest bikes and we even got to ride them around.

A shot of the KHS Urban Express. Man this is a sweet ride, it has 700c wheels and large chain rings to help you glide through the streets. Hopefully we can review it some day. Moe and I as well as anyone that rode it around nearly fell in love with it.
 
 
 
 
 
Here’s where everyone was just hanging out after the ride at the LAPD Police Academy.
 
Man I have to tell you, this ride kicked my butt! I actually had to bow out of a big hill since my knee is still bothering me. But I’ll be back next year making sure I keep up with Moe.
