Ever since I moved to Southern California, I have enjoyed riding my bicycle whenever I get the chance.
- I invested in a quality road bike with multiple gears and love the feel of the open road.
The weather in Southern California is out of this world in being so mild and comfortable. You can wear shorts and t-shirts for many of the seasons during the year, but it wasn’t that way when I was living in New England for much of my life. The weather in Vermont was downright frigid by comparison. Although I still use my furnace occasionally living in Tarzana, it’s not an existential necessity like it is in Vermont. My last home in New England had a wood stove, gas furnace, and electric radiant heated flooring just to stay warm from October until April every year. Living in Tarzana near Los Angeles is a welcome change. I get out on my bicycle and ride for miles in any direction, especially the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. One of my favorite past times is riding up and down Ventura Blvd with a cannabis vape pen in my hand. There are a lot of shops, stores, restaurants, and cannabis dispensaries on Ventura Blvd. I like to ride for miles and go east into Encino to visit a friend who lives there. The access to cannabis in the Tarzana area is unbelievable to what my friends have on the east coast of the country. I wouldn’t trade cheaper housing for subpar cannabis sold at egregious prices that no one wants to pay, regardless of their income level!
