There's never anything bad about commuting on a bicycle. But sometimes there are times when it's better than good. I found a new shortcut to the bank (where one of my bicycles was once stolen! locked up! on video!) through Park Labrea. And they even have a bike lane. It's quiet, easy, and lined with spring blooms: oleander, bougainvillea, jacaranda... Now if I had more deposits to make, I'd be taking this route more often.
