Leave it to Mash to put out a minute-long video that packs the stoke. Rainier is an exceptionally-strong rider and seeing him climb Fillmore Street like that is impressive!
You’ve been waiting for the chance to ride. Get out there this weekend…
… and some of that.
I hope you guys had a great weekend. Who’s got off work tomorrow?
On my recent trip to California, my mornings and afternoons were spent combing the roads for ideal backdrops. Here’s a few outtakes that are free to consume. Please, don’t fret, the weekend’s coming soon.
It’s Friday afternoon and that means everyone’s gearing up for the weekend. Get at those roads!
Damn straight. Climb ‘em to bomb ‘em.

Last weekend was Lord of Griffith in Los Angeles. Taking place in Griffith Park, one of the largest green spaces within a city in the US, racers took to the Cat 3 climb on track bikes. Some had brakes, some didn’t but everyone showed up, raced and had a blast. Devon Tsuno has the only photos I’ve found on Flickr, so head over and check them out here.
There’s been a few posts up on Facebook, where someone who doesn’t race accused some racers of “cheating”. Look people, these are unsanctioned races. Of course people are going to cheat. If they cheat, they have to live with their own guilt, so let it be. The real reason why races are important is the sense of community and competition they build. If you “cheat”, then you really didn’t give it your all. In the end, everyone came out, as a community and had fun.
I’m glad to see so many people turned out for this event. I gotta make it to it next year.

Back when Chas had hair and Crihs wasn’t fat, they hit up Douglass St. with the Full Frame Collective and Werehaus guys. Terry got this shot of Chas, getting so pitted and it just makes me smile. For more entertainment, hit up the video from Douglass St. below.
