A Statement

Without delving into the political sensitivities of recent events, we’d like to extend this photo to the readers of this site. The world’s complexities often cloud the most important emotion: love.

Hump Day

Every Wednesday morning brings about the Los Angeles River Camp Coffee meet-up and this week, I was finally in town so my morning began there, around 7:30am. After dining on one of Nils’ delicious tacos (yes, he brought that stove on his cargo bike…) I headed out for a ride with Nick from Golden Saddle.

It was a pretty loosely planned morning with the Verdugos on our agenda. The problem with the Verdugos is, they’re so big that you can spend all day going up and down the fireroads and singletrack. Which is exactly what we did.

I didn’t think this was enough for a whole gallery, but I really wanted to share a few of these, so enjoy! (more…)

Day Dreamin’

I’m really excited about this review. The All-City Mr. Pink has been on my “must” list for some time now and to finally get a lot of miles and a lot of climbing in on one has been highly enjoyable. It’s with a heavy heart that I have to send this bike back today, but the sunset photos this evening are looking great.

Stay tuned this week for more!

My New LA Backyard

The title of this post comes from an email someone just sent over that ended with “Have a great weekend in your new LA backyard!” I felt it was a good segue into some photos I shot today with my buddy Hans up in the Verdugo mountains, just a 20 minute pedal from my front door.

Weekends are great like that. Hope you’re taking advantage of the short days.

Later, Sonoma!

I don’t get to ride my road bike up in these parts often, but when I do, I really fall in love with Northern California all over again. Today we took off for the coast, via a bunch of back roads before jammin’ back inland via the Russian River. Chilled wine, herbal supplements and baked goods a plenty were consumed. Corners were cooked and freehubs sated. It was a good time with old friends and new. Road bikes are rad…

If you’ve never ridden in this part of the country, you really have to. Next time I’m bringing my mountain bike!

MANY MANY thanks to Chris King, Chris Diminno from Gourmet Century for catering this weekend, Argonaut Cycles and John from Santa Rosa for sharing his local routes with us!
