Cloud Burst is one of my favorite rides I’ve ever done and was greatly responsible for my changed opinion on riding in Los Angeles. To this day, I still talk about it nonstop. If this daunting ride is too much for you to take on solo, the guys at Mudfoot are organizing the Hump Hundo, a group pedal up to Cloud Burst on May 5th.

See my photos from Cloud Burst here and here’s my Strava route from last year.
Splinter Camo is one of the best patterns from WWII and these vests look amazing. I just ordered mine, check out the details below. Props to Tracko andENDO. These look great.
“There is nothing like a good vest for the Spring time. It’s in the 50s when you leave home and it can be 20 to 30 degrees warmer by the middle of the day. I’ve worn this vest over a lightweight jersey with arm-warmers when it’s 50 degrees and I’ve worn it unzipped and flapping in the wind when it’s 80 degrees. Vests are one of the most versatile pieces of outerwear you can own, on the bike or off. We chose camouflage because we wanted something that would disappear, allowing it to be worn with anything.”

Pre-Order runs through April 30th, 2013. Production lead time is 6 weeks.
This just in from Chrome:
“Thousands of racers will ascend on and crash the Los Angeles Marathon race course in the dead of the night to compete in one of the most toughest urban cycling races known to man. Chrome has partnered with Red Bull to bring the Wolfpack Hustle Unified Title Series to the next level of urban racing. This is just the first stop of the three race series that will span over several months including a LA Crit, and the 6th St. sprints. Only one man and one woman will be immortalized as winners of the official sacred dog tags which will prove their endurance, speed, and power.”
Wolfpack Hustle takeover! I gotta make it out to at least one of these events in 2013.
Wolfpack Hustle: The Unified Title Series
State loves the Wolfpack Hustle‘s Marathon Crash Race.
People may think I don’t pay attention to fixed freestyle but I’m very much still stoked on seeing the riders and the riding progress. Most importantly, dudes like Elliot Milner (Unknown Bike Co) are pushing themselves and having fun. If you pay attention to the little nuances in his riding, you’ll notice that pedal setting doesn’t matter to him and he can spin either direction with ease.
Leave it to Matt Spencer at Wolf Drawn to deliver an excellent video and if this doesn’t make you want to ride, I don’t know what will.

This is amazing. Well done Matt!
This is the third layout of the 2013 PiNP Calendar, entitled “The Lost Highway”. The camera, film used and location are located on the bottom left of the document.
On the first of each month, I’ll be posting a PDF file here on the site, allowing you to print this letter-sized document as you wish. Print as many copies as you’d like. Hand them out to friends or your local shop. It’s intended to be a free offering from the site, as a thank you to all the readers out there.
Spring is just around the corner and that means it’s time for rides that will kick your ass. The place where I go in the US for ass-kicking is Los Angeles. This stretch of the 2 is closed and for good reason. Falling rocks cover the road but man, is it other-worldly.

I missed this one in the midst of all the madness last week but it’s great to see some choice cuts from both Wolfpack Hustle and Ace from the Sleepers!
I need to make it out to one of these Unified Title Series events this year.
Before Tyler broke himself off in Cali (see this link for pics), Matt Spencer pulled together some clips of him thrashing four pegs for H+Son. The last clip is so fucking impressive. Good job guys! Heal up Tyler.
Also, be sure to peep Tyler’s Flickr for a Disposable set from his trip to LA.
