2014 Amgen Tour of California: Stage 07 – Pasadena
Flag face

Stage 07 was my unofficial “rest day”. After eight days on the road, I was ready for a chill afternoon, lounging by the pool, with a bourbon in one hand and my ‘gram in the other.

Like all time spent on the road, nothing ever goes as planned. I shot the start of the race because, why the hell not? Then I bumped into some friends and watched the start. Before I knew it, the time was 1pm and I had still yet to find a pool…

Then, we got an urgent call, summoning us to the team hotel, an hour away, to interview a very important person… More on that later, but for now, enjoy some good old fashioned race randomness and race refuse observations.

Skylock: The Solar Powered Bike Lock

Finally, a concept cycling product that actually makes sense… I’d want to know if someone was tampering with my lock and I like that it opens up the possibilities for bike-sharing. See more at Skylock.

I love photos like this from bike rides and I can’t wait to see that kit go into production. Thanks for making me miss Los Angeles and the Mountain Otter even more, Sean!

700×33
33-1

I don’t usually gloat about birthdays, but I felt like this year is a special one. 33c tires are a coincidental size but it was worth making a note. Today I’m 33 years young and I look forward to moving up in tire size each year…

Ride Along: Hanson Little and His Dodge Sportsmobile
Ride Along: Hanson Little and His Dodge Sportsmobile

Leaving your nest ain’t easy, especially when your home town has been good to you. Hanson Little used to be a pro BMX rider – on paper – he still rips and takes trips from time to time, but his days of going big are limited by past injuries and the desire to keep on the bike, not healing off it.

Recently, Hanson bought a van and sold all of his belongings, save for a few bicycles. He plans on spending a great deal of time on the road over the next few months, but before he left town, I met up with him and shot some photos of his new mobile digs.

This weekend, I sent over some interview questions, which he promptly replied to… check them out below in a special Ride Along!
