Biking the LA Festival of Lights
I have been to a few festival of lights shows. Actually, Columbus, Ohio has a pretty nice annual show along the Olentangy River. But we always drove through the park, and then I read this article about the Bike Night in LA, where people toured the festival by peddle. This makes way more sense, riding through a lights festival on a bike would be so much more fun, well, it may help to be in LA where the weather is a little nicer than say Ohio in November, but it still sounds like fun to me. However, I did not realise that bikes were actually banned from attending the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's Festival. They had to be given their own special night.
Putting aside that it's not even officially the holiday season yet, and also putting aside that every other night of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's Festival of Lights cyclists are categorically banned from enjoying the public light show, last night was the one-night-only bone thrown by LADWP and city officials to us whacky two-wheeling advocates so that we could roll up and down the mile-long displays of illumination without any vehicular integration or interference.
