not only was Joseph welcomed with open arms, he had a pretty nice sunset and his own Mariachi band!
From the moment Joseph arrived at Golden Saddle Cyclery yesterday, I don’t think he quit smiling. I even took a photo of him at one point with the box housing the new Search and State S2-R jersey(which he carried across the country) in front of his face and he said, “I know you can’t see me, but I can’t stop smiling.”
I personally wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out yesterday and helped us in welcoming Joseph to Los Angeles! I also wanted to say thank you to Joseph’s parents, not only for driving from Arizona to hangout at a bike shop, but for producing a standup-guy like Joseph. In my opinion there was no better candidate for #nyctogsc!
Joseph rode from NYC to GSC in 21 days, averaging about 160 miles a day.
