Looks like it’s gonna be raining all day tomorrow over Encino Velodrome and that track surface is SLIPPERY WHEN WET! So week two of our Intro To Track Racing class will be delayed till next week. See you then.
Sean Martin over at Takeover LA has started a series spotlighting the riders of Los Angeles. Get to know the two-wheeled warriors who own the streets in this town with short interviews about their rides, their bikes and themselves. There are tons of awesome people on bikes in this city — no matter what kind of riding they are doing — and Sean gets huge props for even beginning to give them the recognition they deserve. The first Rider Profile is on Colt Van Sky and check back with TOLA for more Rider Profiles every Monday.
Ace Boogie is now writing a regular column on the Trafik Pictures blog about LA’s growing (more like blowing up!) bike culture. He’ll be hitting up everything from the social rides to the alleycats to the weekend traning rides — and of course all the riders who ride to and fro. The cycling community here has come a long way already and it just keeps on getting bigger and Ace is stepping in to document it. The first entry is just an introduction but I’m definitely looking forward to reading more next week. I love Ace and he’s got an awesome perspective on this city and on life in general so check out Mellow Mondays every Monday.
