Bike Ride to Venice

Brian on the California Ave incline. Yes, we live here.

Sunday afternoon, The Santa Monica Luskeys decided to ride our bikes to Venice beach for a casual lunch with our cousin, Daniel. Daniel moved to LA about 6 months ago and has been campaigning to become a Santa Monica Luskey ever since. We see Daniel a couple times a week and feel so lucky to have family close to us! We chose a lunch spot closer to him (he lives near Abbot Kinney in Venice, California) so that we could incorporate a bike ride into the adventure. We have done a similar ride before, but this one was especially challenging. And then we realized I had cycled the entire way on two flat tires. Awesome.

Look, Ma, I'm wearing my helmet!

Lunch was great! We went to Flake and split "The Great Greek" wrap and "The Tasty Turkey" panini. Daniel ordered the daily special sandwich and we all enjoyed the food and company. After lunch (and filling up the tires with some air from a local bike shop) we stopped in front of the Santa Monica Pier to take the above picture. The ride back was a million times easier with air in the ole tires. After showering and changing, the boys went to play poker and I took a well deserved nap.

What a great way to end the weekend!
