Here’s the trailer for Ashes of a Cowboy. Next week, exclusively for the Kickstarter backers, I’ll be sending out a private vimeo link so you can see the final film. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement. We couldn’t be happier with the results.
Biking along the Los Angeles River can be cool but it’s also pretty obvious especially after it rains that people trash the waterways. It’s unbelievable to see the amount of trash and plastic bags in the Los Angeles River. It’s definitely a step that plastic bags are now banned in Los Angeles, at least in large supermarkets.
The Los Angeles River flows into the ocean. There are huge nets to help stop the garbage from making there way into the open sea but tons of trash still makes it’s way in and devastates the local and global ecosystem.
Keep it clean.
Note: Concrete was laid over the majority of the Los Angeles River starting in the late 30’s to control flooding. There are currently several advocacy groups helping to restore the river to a natural state.
The nice thing about going on a 60 mile bike ride around Los Angeles is that you can stop at several of your favorite vegan restaurants and still be hungry for more. I love riding out to Follow Your Heart and Vinh Loi Tofu from Central Los Angeles. This time I headed over the Sepulveda Pass to get to the valley but you could also head over Coldwater Canyon, Laurel Canyon, Cahuenga, L.A. Rive bike path or take the Red Line. If you take the Red Line into the valley it’s also easy to hop on the very nice east / west Orange Line Bike Path which is separate from cars.
I got appetizers at Vinh Loi (vegan ham rolls, not pictured), then a Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake and a Tofu Eggwich at Follow Your Heart.
I highly recommend riding and eating this adventure. Have fun!
Joshua Tree is an easy drive from Los Angeles, it has some really amazing and fun camping. If you’re going to have a campfire you have to bring in your own firewood. If you’re camping in the wintertime I definitely recommend. It gets down into the 40’s at night and it’s real fun to roast marshmallows and tell stories. I’ll post some photos from our hikes later in the week.
