This is a good watch, or listen, for the next five minutes of your morning.
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.

“First things first: how did you start riding road bikes?
It was a slow-burn thing for me. I moved to LA, and I couldn’t help but notice the occasional rider travelling through the city, exploring and traversing. I got a road bike and just rode alone all the time, and I dug in to the aesthetics and feelings of riding a bike. The interesting thing is that this was around the time of Armstrong, so cycling was booming, but just not in the way that I was interested in. I mean, I loved to watch the Tour and so on, but it wasn’t why I rode a bike.”

Cycling shoes need to be many things and it hasn’t been until recently that being reflective was even an option. If you love the Climber’s Shoes platform, but wanted a little bit more flash, be sure to check out the Reflective Climber’s Shoes. Available in a neon yellow and navy blue. See more at Rapha.
Rapha has just launched a cycling bra line, something I’ve yet to see any cycling apparel company tackle, with two designs: light and medium support. See more information at Rapha.
