LA has a bad rep for cycling. Just the other day I got in a debate with someone at a bar because they literally said “LA sucks for cycling”. I laughed, thinking they were referring to the hashtag (right?), only to find a solid 10 minute debate followed. Basically, any city is what you make of it. It’s your attitude and approach that changes your outlook.

I went through so much film during my last stay in Los Angeles and that’s probably because we rode every single day. Some of the rides I had done before, but having Andy along brought a new perspective. We rode mostly cross bikes and even the “road rides” had a fair amount of dirt thrown in.

Here’s a collection of a few rides, in a playful Photoset. See more in the Gallery!

Tools of the trade:
Yashica T4 / Fuji Pro400H

  • Prolly: Can ya give us a link to the Strava route on how to get to the backside of the Hollywood sign? Looks epic.

  • Definitely sucked. All the proof is in there.

    “Laid out.” is one of the best here in a while. Such a good ‘capture’ of a well known moment.

    Yeah….looks shitty. In reality, #MSsuxforcycling. I am also happy that it appears we got an entire photoset that didn’t contain a single disc brake.
