    I would go so far as to say this is a general reflection of the population. The bicycle simply gives individuals a rationalization when revealing themselves.

    I'm sure there are a lot of cyclists who think that they are the "main" players. But, truth be told, no one holds reign in LA. There are thousands of cyclists here who hold no affiliation. Just like...

    As noted, speed is your friend. You must be relaxed yet attentive. Keep your eyes on what's coming up to see the best line. Avoid big rocks. Have fun. Using your legs as suspension is not the best...

    Don't worry about it. You can ride through Griffith Park without any hills or ride the LA River path. You can ride up and down the coast. Or you can ride all over the San Fernando Valley. You can...

    It all goes back to the tight pants. The nod came about as a quick glance to check out the other riders junk without being too overt. If you're not wearing tight pants, why would anyone need to get a...

    Let me put it more simply for you. New cyclist should not ride up hills so much as ride on flats. Perhaps you don't understand when you don't have the base already, putting an obstacle, like a grade...

    Not sure either. But, that's not really that bad and only 7.5 miles. An hour of climbing. Sounds fun.

    Oh, wait. I thought this was a fire road. If it's pavement, 34-26 is way too low of a gear. 39-23/25 would be the absolute lowest gearing you would need. 9% on the pavement is not very steep at all....

    34-26 is a pretty low gear. Should be fine for 10% sustained grades. And riding up hills to train for riding up hills is good for an experienced cyclist. An unexperienced cyclist should be spending...

    "Hey don't bug me, I'm an Olympic athlete on Strava." Not.

    The exhorting of social media as a reason to not respond to an actual person is ironic.

    If the guy could offer an excuse while riding along, then he obviously wasn't putting forth enough effort on his Strava segment.

    That's the lamest part of the whole story. Being that Strava is...
