Two Rabbits are hosting a Sale/ BBQ/ Party at their studios this Saturday.
There will be Art for sale, Beer, Giveaways, Food, Bands, Art for Sale, and nothing but good vibes.
We will be hosting a group ride to the studio from Echo Park Lake.
Meet at 12pm at the Lady of the lake statue, rolling when we want too.
The Spoke Cards pictured will be given out at the ride.
The Brown bag is for street drinking in style, those will be for sale at the Studio.
The Two Rabbits support a lot of Cycling events and now it is our turn to support them.
SUPPORT YOUR SUPPORTERS.
*If you repost on FB or help promote on your own blogs/ websites, I heard there will be
something special for those who get the word out.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and send them links to how you promoted for them.
**If enough heads show, we'll do sprints down the block for beers and cash.
I want a pair. I need some nice traveling pants for my upcoming trip.
Details from Outlier:
"The Outlier 60/30 Chino in Field Green. Limited edition Independence Day release.
A superior chino. Simple, incredibly comfortable and well suited for the rain, grit and motion of real life. Pants you'll want to pull out of your closet and wear everyday. Lightweight, breathable and gifted with a true freedom of movement.
Outlier's 60/30 Cloth is a carefully considered blend of cotton (64%), micro-denier nylon (29%) and elastane (7%). It combines the comfort and good looks of a classic cotton khaki twill, but with the four way stretch freedom of a cycling short and the durability of a hiking parka."
Macaframa has a nice treat for us this AM.
You can really see the love they have for SF. The city is fucking awesome and so are people who ride it.
Details from Maca:
"This was an Easter Egg we placed in the DVD. Some people say it doesn’t exist but if I remember correctly it’s somewhere on the Main Menu Screen. I edited this on day 8 of 8 with no sleep to send off the Final Cut and Extras to meet our already past due deadline to dvd mastering. Partially inebriated and most effectively sleep deprived, the edits are a bit sloppy, but without fail here is a montage of San Francisco B-Roll we accrued during the filming of Macaframa."

What an epic weekend. I am beat to death, I forgot my Camera at home, so those posts
will have to wait. Both Screenings were amazing. Fixation killed it. I'm very proud of Alex's Movie,
and how great all the riders and cities came off in it. TL&R was a good time, and it was awesome
getting together with everyone and talking about the next steps, to get LA the props we deserve.
Speaking of Props, here's an interview with Keo and I, that the LAweekly posted last week!
Oh, SF was in the house for weekend, and I think we showed them how LA does it.
WE OUT HERE!

Rick got me my "rider" copy of the DVD last night. I watched it. That summer
was amazing and those some of those guys are the best dudes ever. That summer
really meant a lot to the new kid on the block, so happy to have captured on film.
You all should go out and buy the DVD, mostly for the extra features!
That's where my section is and Joe is also all up in there too.
See you Guys Saturday!
Two films on LA cycling dropping in one week. Pretty fucking cool.
I am hype for tonight and hope to see all of you there. We have SF riders from
film in town and I am stoked to be hosting them for the weekend. Come out,

more nervous then you! Here the FB event page!

A few weeks ago, I bought this shirt at an event and totally spaced on who I had gotten it from. The printer hit me up,
and actually came over to my house. He gave me this shirt in the photo above. The very first
shirt he had ever printed. It was a thank you for giving his shirts props on the blog. His name
is Felipe and he will selling more shirts at the "To live & Ride in LA" screening this week. He was
on the ride that got hit last week. Everyone should by a shirt from Felipe at the event, the money
will be going back to the victims. He told me the story of being there and watching his homies get run over.
Hard to hear about. My heart goes out to Felipe and his crew. My deepest thanks for such an awesome gift.

The big guy has left Volume to go ride for LDG... Power Move? Already updated his FB,
with himself riding the LDG Hammer. We wish him the best!
"Our long time Volume supporter and team rider, Justin “Congo” Mitchell will no longer be riding for Volume. He has decided to take another offer that came his way. Congo had a large amount of influence on many of our past, present, and future Volume fixed products and we are thankful for everything he has done for us. He will still be riding for our sister brand, Resist, where he has his signature bars coming out next month. Everyone at Volume wishes Congo the best of luck in the future!"
If you didn't know the RAAM is going on right now. I have been keeping tabs on it, as I am truly
fascinated by this race. These guys are fucking nuts and are the gnarliest racers out there.
3000 miles in less then Seven days. WTF.
Alberto Banco is in 3rd place when this photo was taken.
He has covered 1706 miles, 4 days, 17 hours, 55 minutes, average speed 14.98 mph
From the RAAM Blog.
Finally! What a crazy ride it has been. We all have been waiting for this film to drop.
Me more then anyone, I can finally see my part on the DVD extra features! LOL.
While it is out on itunes, I encourage all of you to get the DVD, so you can see me,
and the rest of the 40 mins of extra footy!

Last Friday, I wrote on the Expo Bike Buildup. Not much had really happened since taking that photo
over a week ago. I turn the corner this morning and Bewm! Bike path! So stoked, it's ride able,
so I rode it! Fun times. As I write this the city is adding irrigation for all the wonderful landscaping
that will be running alongside it. More photos to come as it progresses. Nice work LA.

In LA, there has been on going construction on a new MTA line. The Exposition line.
It runs from USC to almost Venice/ Robertson. It cuts right in front (above) of work. A side project,
Expo Bike path runs along side it ( and is super close to my house). The Buildup of the path is finally
hitting my work. The Bike path is ten feet from our doors, and I have been watching it get built.
I have had plans of taking a photo a day, so you guys could see the process. What you
see here, is what they got done in one day! I was stoked, I thought it would be finished
in like four days, then would have a great commute to work. Newp, I took this photo over a
week ago. Nothing new since. I'll update as things happen...

I came home yesterday to several packages. One of them was from Bern.
A new G2 helmet to try out. I'm gonna find a helmetless rider to check this
for us. Get an opinion of someone who has never had a helmet and fucking needs one.
After last night, everyone should be aware that anything can happen on the road,
at any given time.
