Cyclists Beat JetBlue Flight

Six bicyclists beat a JetBlue flight in a race from Burbank to Long Beach. Inspired by JetBlue's offer of $4 flights between the two LA-area cities during the highway shutdowns known as "carmageddon," the cyclists and a blogger left from the same intersection in North Hollywood at 10:50 a.m. The blogger headed to the airport to board his 12:20 p.m. flight. The cyclists rode the whole distance and crossed the finish line just after the plane had taken off, completing the trip in 1 hour and 34 minutes.
