Phantom Mountain Bikers

I moved to Pasadena about two years ago. I found the PMBC website not long after that and decided to join them for the next scheduled ride which was supposed to start at 8am at the top of Lake Avenue.…

Climbers Wanted!

Okay pedal masters it’s time to show the outside world what you’re made of! Wax your legs and saddle up, it’s the LA Wheelman’s Fargo Hill Street Climb. It happens on March 26th. I did it last year and it…

Today’s Conservancy Trail Bash

Damn that was a good ride! Sorry for those who missed it. As you may have noticed – it was sunny and beautiful at the 8am start time. It got darker and cooler as we climbed. We must have ripped…

Santa’s on his way!

That’s right boys and girls, Santa’s on his way and he’s got a B.O.B. full of goodies. What better way to start celebrating than hitting the trail with Santa and his red nose. There’ll be tamales and some baked goods…

Meeting Gary Fisher

Well as most of you may not know, my first bike was a Gary Fisher Kaiti. I had shopped around for about 3 months before deciding to buy the GF from Pasadena Cyclery. Immediately, I fell in love with Mtn…

Mammoth ’05

For all of you who didn’t go to Mammoth this year, you missed out on some great riding and lotsa awesome grub courtesy of Fofo (pictures available in my gallery). Every year that we go to Mammoth, I am reminded…

I finally rode!

This is so not fair!

I don’t get out riding much these days, so I look forward to the times when I can get out and ride. Last weekend, the Altadena Mountain Rescue guys invited me out to a Brown/El Prieto ride. I like riding…

Every ride’s a social ride.

If you’ve read the FAQ, you know we’re big on the social aspect of riding. I was reminded of this on our last Beginner ride that I led a couple of weeks ago. Other than myself, four other people showed…

Well, those were obvious Poll results.

Don’t read this if you haven’t voted in the current poll, or haven’t viewed the results. Not surprisingly, everyone so far has voted to ride Anywhere They Can. Duh. I didn’t put much thought into the poll, other than my…

Sunday’s Group Ride

This past Sunday, my dad and I met up with Ray, Bob, and Ray’s friend, Eddie, plus another 14,994 people (any claims of 20,000 riders is highly suspect, as we didn’t see any bib numbers greater than 14,993). You’d think…
