Sean Talkington from Team Dream Bicycle Team and Ringtail loves night rides…as you can see from this photo! So who wants to go on a ride with this cutie and our friend Nathan Carbello tonight? Info below…
LETS RIDE SOME MOUNTAINS TONIGHT!!! Today is supposed to be 108 degrees in East Los Angeles…Today is also Summer Solstice…and on top of that a full moon as well! This only happens once every 50ish years! The last Summer Solstice/Full Moon took place in the summer of 1967 which was coined “The Summer of Love”. Lets make 2016 the “Summer of the Chubby Bobcat” & get hella groovy up on Mt D! Riding up Highway 2 to Mt Disappointment from the Cub House at 6:45pm! Or meet up and ride from Golden Saddle Cyclery at 6pm! (Remember…Bring Lights!)
One of the best kits I’ve seen in a long time, maybe even since one of our kits!
Huge variations in temperature and elevation make Death Valley National Park a truly diverse and extreme environment. Rugged dirt roads connect expansive salt flats to narrow, rock-walled canyons, climbing upwards into cool, forested mountains. Extensive options await experienced, self-supported backcountry cyclists: check ahead with the NPS for trails open to mountain bikes. Fat, high-volume bike tires are essential for the loose rock and sandy roads, and water is scarce – make sure you bring enough for the whole day. Plan your adventure for late fall or early spring to avoid the record high temperatures that helped give Death Valley its name.
