Watch Sweet Ride USA Episode 4

In Episode 4, we hosted our first PublicRide – anyone was welcome to join Sweet Ride USA as we trekked from Silverlake, Los Angeles to a customize-your-own donut shop in Highland Park called Donut Friend. This place is amazing – you can choose the type of donut cake you want, then go crazy with fillings and toppings, including cheese, coconut bacon, lime zest and Sriraccha sauce.

Our guest leader for the ride was Rick Johnson from LA bike crew Treats N’ Beats who filled us in on his least favorite part of biking in LA – Prius drivers.

After we stuffed our faces, the group split off to check out the SoCalCross Turkey Trot Cyclocross races in lovely Verdugo Park. Don “Roadblock” Ward from Wolfpack Hustle and his girlfriend Kathryn led us back to Hollywood on their giant tandem bike.

Everyone on the ride was welcome to take pics and videos, post online with #srusapublicride, and we added the best stuff to this episode. Thanks everybody for the contributions!

It was a fantastic day, and only the first of our PublicRides. If you’d like to come ride with us, join our mailing list or follow us on the socials.

Mudfoot’s “The Dirty Hundo” Video

On March 29th, Mudfoot and Golden Saddle Cyclery hosted The Dirty Hundo – a 90 mile, 9k elevation (35 miles of it dirt) cyclocross bike ride in the Los Angeles mountains for the stout of heart and the thick of tire. I wussed out, largely because I didn’t think I had the right bike for it. That is, until I found out that GSC’s Kyle Kelley did it on his All-City Space Horse AND with flat pedals, making me feel like even more of a pansy.

I’ve since remedied my bike “issue” and am definitely going next year.
