sunset at sunset

I like riding Sunset Blvd at sunset. Like yesterday, riding from “the cornfields” to Silver Lake after Tour de Fat, which by the way was freakin coolio.

I was walking Sunset Blvd a few years ago with my son. It seemed to have changed after dark. We looked around and decided to leave. Is that still the case?

Yeah, there’s probably a few stretches of Sunset that get a little sketchier after dark – further west than I was – maybe through the Hollywood area – although, it seems that area has been improving a lot lately – definitely, the road surface gets rougher and lots of cars. On the route map below, my ride on Sunset was only on the first 4 miles or so before it turns west.

I’d forgotten that Sunset goes all the way to the beach. That would be a great ride someday. A bit hilly towards the end but then there would be ample reward seeing the Pacific and having lunch at Gladstones .

My son reminds me that we were on Hollywood Blvd. I did point out the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. He also remembers that being very dangerous feeling after dark.

well, same idea, they’re only about a block apart.
