Our buddy Zo got tailed by Chrome in his hometown of LA and in Brooklyn while in town for the Red Hook Crit.
All-City is fleeing the snow and cold temperatures for a weekend in Los Angeles with the new Mr. Pink road bike. There will be two events, both taking place in Silver Lake. Check the details out below:

… and we did our best to keep up.
Like many professional cyclists, Taylor Phinney heads to warmer climates in the off-season to train. It just so happens that his locale of choice is Los Angeles. Last year, he rode from LA to Joshua Tree “just cuz” and this year, he’s staying in the neighborhood, exploring the climbs throughout Los Angeles County. Yesterday, Kyle from GSC texted me a cryptic message “Cross Town Ride 11am – meet at Intelli.” Around 10 minutes prior to the meet-up, he included an additional note “I’m running late, but Taylor will be there at 11.” Meaning, Taylor Phinney.

“The ROMANCEÜR is a swashbuckling tender heart of a fantasy warrior, who not only seduces its rider, but acts as a psychedelic aphrodisiac on the psyche. Together you become thee Romanceür, a sacred, lustful partnership rendering all riding surfaces swooned out and speechless, pining for an intimate evening including a tray of rosé Jell-O shots.” – Ultra Romance from his Crust Bikes Diary
Recently, Los Angeles was invaded by some of cycling’s biggest celebrities and no, not Wiggo, Sagan, Vos, or Bryceland. The cyclists that found themselves hanging out at Golden Saddle Cyclery are from a different walk, er, roll of life all-together. These nomadic raconteurs favor dirt to pavement and fully-loaded bikes to ultralight carbon. Not to mention, they’re always on the hunt for the latest cycling expedition, which brings me to Los Angeles… (more…)
Yesterday, Golden Saddle and Rapha led a ride up through the Hollywood hills and onto Dirt Mulholland, in the Santa Monica Mountains. It’s the classic East to West ride in LA, with a bit of everything, for everyone. We had about 40 people show up and the group’s dynamic was perfect. Everyone waited to regroup at the turns and to finish off the day, we stopped for fish tacos and margaritas.
Thanks to GSC and Rapha for putting this together and to everyone who came out! If you’re interested in doing this exact ride, check out the related stories in the sidebar on the left and see more photos below.
Photographer and videographer Brian Vernor recently worked on a project with Terasu in the streets of LA. Head over to Terasu to check out some photos.
This one’s short, sweet and features our friend Alonso riding in Los Angeles.
I don’t even know what to say here, other than THANK YOU JEN AND MAX! Check out the photos from this trip at From Clouds to Cacti, in case you haven’t already.
If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, make sure you check out these events to keep you smiling and rolling along.
