This video is flying around the interwebz faster than Firdauz Haron flies down the freeway. What a killer commute!

Two Blog Columns Worth Reading

A couple of homies have each started writing blog columns about riding in LA. You should check them out:

TOLA Rider Profiles


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.

Mellow Mondays


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.

Hong Kong Fixed Gear velodrome meet!

Found on Flwrider.

Dametruth hits the velodrome.

This is exactly how I got started into it. Rode with a pack of dudes one night to the velodrome, hopped the fence and took a few laps. Loved the feeling. Came back for more.

Give it a shot.
