Tell us a bit about yourself, David.

I’m a British artist. I came out here a few years ago, with a view to leaving within a few months, and that still hasn’t happened – so I guess I like it here.

How long have you lived in WeHo?

I’ve been in WeHo since I got to LA, so almost 3 years now. I keep toying with the idea of trying a new neighbourhood but I can’t leave the convenience of this area quite yet.

How long have you been a WeHo Pedals Bike Share member?

About 8 months (I think), so I was one of the first members when it was introduced.

How has Pedals changed the way you get around?

Most of my day-to-day life happens in a 5 mile radius of my home, so it’s made journeying around a lot quicker, cheaper and less stressful. I save money on gas, parking and it means I’m regularly being active.

What’s your favorite place to ride?

SMB down to Beverly Hills is great. There’s also a bike lane for a lot of that stretch which makes things a lot easier.

And your favorite local spot you love to recommend?

I can’t recommend The Den Meditation on La Brea enough. It’s my happy place.

What would you tell someone thinking about joining WeHo Pedals Bike Share?

Just do it! There’s literally no reason not to. It’s cheap, it’s simple and it gives you a chance to get around the city without adding to the smog. Driving is such unnecessary stress in LA and WeHo Pedals is a great alternative.
