A couple of homies have each started writing blog columns about riding in LA. You should check them out:
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.
Australia continues to horde all the Gold medals, winning every track cycling event today. Megan Dunn won the Women’s Scratch Race. The team of Jack Bobridge, Cam Meyer, Michael Hepburn and Dale Parker won the Team Pursuit. Shane Perkins won the Men’s Sprint while Anna Meares earned her 3rd Gold in the Women’s Sprint.
That’s 10 Gold medals for Australia out of the 11 events contested so far. See today’s full results on Canadian Cyclist.
I seriously love what is going on in Detroit right now. The community is really coming together to get the Dorais Velodrome back on track for the grass roots race series — Thunderdrome. Hogpath recently chatted with Andy Didorosi about the idea and beginning of the race during a tour of the park.
The first Thunderdrome event is happening Oct 16th and will included races for mopeds, scooters, mountain bikes and road bikes.
