Main Street - Main Event

One of my favorite things to do in LA is going to the Farmers' Market on Main Street in Santa Monica on Sunday morning. It's the place to see and be seen, good looking Westside boys and girls lounging on the lawn, eating omelettes and sipping fair trade organic coffees. And of course, many of these beautiful people come to shop on their bicycles.

Riding double = fun in the sun!

A new addition since my last trip to LA is the free valet bike parking in front of the Farmers' Market provided by the City of Santa Monica. I volunteer at the San Francisco Farmers' Market at the Embarcadero, and wonder why something similar to this isn't provided by our city (does Santa Monica need to show The City That Knows How, HOW?).

And a plethora of pretty bicycles parked up and down the street

All of my shots from Venice Beach and Santa Monica are available for viewing on my Flickr photostream.
