Biking All Over: Harrison Brown On Biking Into The World

Harrison Brown Biking Into The World 1

Biking in Los Angeles can be difficult. People in cars can be jerks to you and the city is super spread out and it often feels like going the distance via bike just isn’t worth it. How does biking across Los Angeles compare to doing something like biking across the United States? Psssh: it’s nothing. Our city is a sliver along that journey, a drop in the bucket of distance. It really isn’t that difficult! We promise because biking is one of our main means of transportation.

One Los Angeles biker is hoping to take his love of the activity a big step forward, doing something a lot greater than biking around town: he is going to conquer North America. Literally! Local biker and comedian Harrison Brown is going to go from one tip of America to another in a new web series called Biking Into The World. Brown will be biking from Alaska to Florida and recording his trip as he goes, using the material as an alternative documentary on a different way of traveling. To raise awareness about his currently Kickstarting project and to understand the whys and hows of the journey, we had a quick chat with him about the project. If you are a Los Angeles biker, you will want to read this.

Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2014 Tim Fleming 1

There’s a lot happening this weekend. One of the most important items is the fifth coming of the Art Los Angeles Contemporary, our city’s contemporary art fair and—really—the only art happening in that world worth your time in town. It’s a good marker of what is happening locally and beyond in art and is definitely something to seek out.

On the heels of a big Artsy preview and just days away from its opening, we spoke with the man behind the fair, Tim Fleming. Fleming is the fair’s founder and director and built the show out of an enthusiasm for art being made in this city and a need to show it off. He and his team have built the ALAC into something huge and something that will only get bigger and bigger. Thus, enjoy a quick chat we had with him over the phone on Friday where he details what to expect this year and points out a few surprises you may not be aware of.
