R.I.P Bill Cunningham!

The original from the bicycle photographer! We’ll miss you Bill!

RIPBill

Mr. Cunningham was such a singular presence in the city that, in 2009, he was designated a living landmark.

The Worldwide Swift Campout is Tomorrow!

Who’s ready for the GSC chapter of the Swift Industries Campout this weekend in LA!?!? We know we are! We’d like for everyone to meet at the bike shop on June 25th around 2 and we’ll be rolling out around 3. There will be short stops for food and maybe a drink while we meander to the base of the mountains. We’ll be then taking the Mt. Wilson Toll Road up to Henninger Flats for the night!!! There is a 3 1/2 mile dirt road up to the campground, so bring to bike you feel most comfortable riding off-road.

Mountain bikes, to be exact. Now, it’s true that people have been riding on rough roads and dusty paths from the earliest days of cycling. But a perfect mix of competition, rapid technology development, and marketing strategy propelled what mountain bike pioneer Charlie Kelly calls a “goofy hobby” into global phenomenon and a new Olympic sport.
