A Golden Hour Golden Saddle Cyclery Tradition

One of my favorite rides in Los Angeles is up to the “Blacktop” at golden hour. In the summer months, it’s a weekly (sometimes nightly) Golden Saddle Cyclery tradition. While the climb up is enough to get your blood flowing, the fruits are well worth the effort. If you’re a Los Angelean, then you know where this spot is. If you’re not, then you have to go to GSC to find out.

Earlier this week, we had an impromptu pizza party as we watched the sun set over Griffith Park, coincidentally, New Order was playing at down below at the Greek Theatre, adding to the ambiance.

It was by far, my favorite sunset ride I’ve done with the guys and I happened to have a camera with me…
