Going slow during rides sometimes has its benefits. You’ll find new lines on a trail, or discover a new lookout point on a climb. Yesterday, during the heat of the day, Cari and I went to ride in the Verdugo mountains, my go-to ride spot in Los Angeles. Now, I’ve spent many hours climbing these steep beasts since moving to LA and in that time, have witnessed a broad selection of wildlife ranging from gray foxes, bobcats, rattle snakes, king snakes, red tailed hawks and even a weasel scurrying through the brush. Most of these animals I came upon while descending and spooked them on the trail but I rarely see anything other than the occasional gopher snake while climbing. (more…)
… well, technically they rode from SF to LA in four days, but they came straight to Golden Saddle to hang out, recover and have a few beers. I wish I could have photographed all their bikes, but sometimes smiling faces and peace signs make for a better photo! Follow the dudes with their hashtag.
Oh my god, this is so good! But remember, support your local bike shop when you can!
… we began ours a little early!
We all love bombing hills on bikes and having ridden up this one (and down) before, I can attest at how gnarly this is.
Someone needs to recreate this ASAP!
… like these cyclists did with an Ostrich!
Can Mark take on a Rubik’s Cube, solving the puzzle completely in under 2 minutes? Watch and find out.
Apparently, this is a thing.
This one’s filled with tons of randomness, yet there are some real gems to be had!
