Sunset in Los Angeles
The 20th anniverery of one of the worst ideas to come out of Minneapolis. If you don’t already know what this is after 20 years then you should google it ( really, the google results are pretty great). We are pulling things together currently and will have more updates as they come in. I just wanted to get this out there in your brains so that you can start doing intervals on the rollers while slamming beers and so out of towners can start planning their winter getaway to beautiful frozen MPLS.
Thursday: Pre-reg. W/T/F happy hour. Eastlake Brewery from 5pm-7pm. Everyone else welcome to join after 7pm.
Friday: Pre-reg & Jeff O’Hare pre-race.
Saturday: Reg opens at 11. Roll out at 2.
Sunday: hangovers & probably brunch. Karaoke later. Tiana and Elena will be Taking Back Sunday.
Word on the street is that they are no longer being made. Stoked to scoop one from Cat Bartash before they were all gone.

In all my trips to California I had never had the opportunity to visit any of it’s magnificent National Parks. Which made it an easy choice to tack a few days onto the tail end of my recent business trip (see reportage on the All-City Cycles blog) to finally do just that. Destination: Joshua Tree. Agenda: Ride some bikes, then get ready for sunset with a journey into the park to have our minds blown by the geography and sunset.
John, Kyle, and I headed up Sunday night to ride Monday morning. We met up with Darren, a new acquaintance who showed up in a VW bus at the shop the day before. He was heading there, and so were we so of course we teamed right the fuck up. Cari and Liz, joined us later on Monday completing the crew in time for the mind expanding hike out into the barren lands for sunset.
The official Radavist adventuring machine, a turbo diesel right hand drive Land Cruiser that left pretty much every dude we happened past with their mouths agape. Seriously, if any of you out there are looking to attract attention from males, this is the ticket.

Riding the Section 6 trails, just outside of Joshua Tree National Park. Don’t be a knucklehead, you can’t go riding bikes off-road in National Parks, that shit don’t fly.

It was a heck of a time.
