Well, not that kinda jamming.
I’ve been very fortunate every time I’ve been to LA, only because I have the best friends there. Friends who are the best ride guides and of course, own the best bike shop in LA (I mean the best bar in Silverlake). Tracko took me on one of the best cross rides I’ve been on in Los Angeles the last time I was in town. Parts of it were very LA, while other sections felt like Austin and some even reminded me (mostly smelled like) Australia. We got to fuck around a bit on tech sections, avoid dog walkers, took a few spills and hammered it home just in time for lunch. Los Angeles really does have some of the best bike riding in the country…
We totalled 48 miles and around 3,600′ of elevation but who gives a shit about the numbers with trails like this. See for yourself below!
Tools of the trade:

I know I already posted about Woody’s Team Dream Team shirts last Friday but this weekend, Jesse Carmody got creative with the TDT water bottle photo shoot and I had to share these photos!
“The red, white and blue bobcat t-shirt & purist bottle are here to commemorate Woody’s National Masters Championship, his commitment to the US Olympic Cycling program, and to support him for being an all around good guy.
100% of the proceeds from both the red, white & blue bottle and t-shirt will go to assisting him with his medical bills. Look cool and be rad at the same time!”
Talk to anyone on the US Olympic track team and they’ll tell you that Woody’s one solid wrench. Not only that, but he holds down the repairs at Golden Saddle Cyclery and coaches in his part time. Bottom line, Woody’s one solid fella who knows his way around the velodrome.
After recovering from a MTB wreck, where he broke his femur and clavicle, Jeff from All-City set him up with an Thunderdome track frame to aid in his physical therapy. With a machine like this, no one would need any more encouragement to hit the boards. This was one of the first track bikes I’ve shot where the tires weren’t allowed to touch the ground, save for the photos…
Well, I didn’t really want the gold but these in-store exclusive Golden Saddle Cyclery bottles look great on my Geekhouse. They look even better a bit dirty and dusty. Pick one up now in shop because they’re already getting low on stock.

I’m in Los Angeles today, en route for Santa Barbara and the ATOC tomorrow but before leaving town, I had to do a cross ride with Kyle. Some ups, just as many downs and a few spills made for a great ride. While my film sits in its canister, awaiting being developed, check out these two photos from Kyle’s Instagram. I forget how beautiful Los Angeles is, especially this time of year in the mountains. Nature is so metal.
Praise the Necronomicog.
You know how it goes: these Golden Saddle Cyclery caps and bottles will sell out faster than…
