I spent this New Year's in Venice Beach.
It was not the sunny SoCal weather that we dreamed of, but my friend Marisol and I enjoyed cruising the beach scene nonetheless.
We stayed at the Bayside Hotel, which has a fleet of bike rentals for a very reasonable day rate.
And even so, it is not hard to find any type of bike to fit your fancy in these parts...
or to fit your family!
Enjoy the ride that is 2012! (more to come from Lalaland...)
