A Ride Up the 2 Revealed that Newcomb’s Is Closed on Tuesdays

The last time I was in Los Angeles, I had one thing on my mind: doing some road riding in the Angeles National Forest. Usually, I’m in LA on my cross bike and we will spend our afternoons poaching trails, escaping to the dirt or bombing fire roads. All of which are wayyy more fun than a road ride, ATMO, anyway.

Still, there’s nothing like a somber ride up the 2 to Newcomb’s Ranch for a burger, a beer and some fries, only to rip back down to town, sated.

Unfortunately for the group that morning, Newcomb’s was closed and I think I was the only one who really ate anything at all that morning. Check out some selects from a Recent Roll. Man, that was a long time coming!

We totaled 80 miles and around 8,000′ and damn, Oinksters was good!

    a guy came into the shop today and he just recently moved to LA, he said how awesome it really is there, really makes me wish I wasn’t tied down. But hell I’m still going to make it a point to visit.

    Strong photos as always…I guess I can give a thumbs up to sprinting for burgers…but burritos would be better :-)
