It’s labor day here in the US, so we’re all taking the day off… See ya tomorrow!
… and do your best to try to get into some of this.

Summer is fleeting!
The dog days of summer have landed in Los Angeles. After a completely amazing time in SF, I hopped on a plane and found myself in LA with an agenda unlike anything before: find a place to live and hopefully, an office to work out of. The stars aligned and my dirt sacrifices to the Necronomicog paid off. For the most part anyway. A new home base, somewhere to explore roads and uncover new experiences, or just spend time on the roads and trails with friends, old and new.
Los Angeles will be my new home town and this past trip was stunning on many levels. While this is by no means a story, it is a paraphrased visual showcase to just some of the rides we went on, many of which I’ll expand upon relocation to the west coast.
Coincidentally, because I can’t ever seem to leave for a ride without a camera, I managed to pull together some random photos, which make for a perfect distraction on a Friday afternoon.
The cat’s, err, the jackal‘s out of the bag. The Radavist is relocating to Los Angeles thanks to a few opportunities that presented themselves recently. It’s a big change, but a welcomed one and I think you’ll all agree, California has it going on.
When it’s dusty, loose and hot, it’s easy to overcook those corners. Thanks for the laughs, Kyle!

This series is going to be so good. Professional cyclocross racer Dan Chabanov is writing a weekly column for our friends at the Athletic, aptly called “Cross Column.” Head over and check out Week One now!
I can’t wait to break this bike in tomorrow in the San Gabriel mountains. Kris’ work at 44 Bikes is so incredibly clean, down to little branding hits like this decal.
Summer’s here in sunny Los Angeles and on today’s ride, Graham decided it was an opportune time to catch some rays… Enjoy the weekend, y’all.
By the way, who knows this spot?
I’m down in SoCal, where it’s hot and dusty. Rides await but I can’t stop thinking about the jaunt that Fresh Air Bicycles took me on last week in San Francisco. Saturday afternoon in the Headlands tends to be busy, but we did manage to find some empty trails, like Coyote Ridge.
There’s more to come tomorrow, so stay tuned!
