First stop, Verve Coffee to soak up some sun and of course, our favorite roast in town.  I sort of feel like my eBike and I are in the jungle against this plant wall.

Don’t mind me, I’m just zipping through traffic with the biggest grin on my face.  I’m quite a head turner on my Sondors eBike, and I’m not making any noise — I’m an anomaly to onlookers because I’m soaring along motionless, and in complete silence. Turns out a silent motor is quite jarring for a world accustomed to the combustion engine.

By the time I arrive at my next stop, Grand Central Market, I’ve got my paparazzi pose down.  “Please, I’m just a normal girl with a Sondors eBike, I enjoy a greasy burger & fries just like everyone else.”

As I wait for the light to turn green, the man in the van next to me stares enviously.  Not to worry sir, you too, could one day own a Sondors eBike.

Last stop, Pershing Square!  I am always amazed by how much more I’m able to see when I take my eBike for a spin in the city.

My Pershing Square fun is unceremoniously cut short  when a security guard yells at me for riding around the fountain.  Apparently vehicles aren’t allowed in the square, point taken.

Hey, is that guy in the background pedaling for real?!  I wonder how long it will be until he’s the minority..

A coffee break, lunch, dessert, and some DTLA sight-seeing, all in one lunch break.  That’s my #5miles — now, back to work.
