    Looking for this bike shop in Long Beach, CA with a particular bike jersey

    Hi guys
    I'm looking for a bike shop in Long Beach, I think there's a word "east" on it. I thought it was park east but couldn't google it. The jerseys are blue and white with "Dia de los Meurtos" skulls on it and there are some skulls on it as well on the shorts. The arm warmers has a bunch on it as well. The kit is blue and white.

    Anyone know who these guys are?

    Yah, it was a pretty cool kit! I thought the shorts said "Park East Cycles" or "Park East Bikes" or something like that. But there is no Park East bike shop on my googling searches.

    Velo Allegro Bicycle Club has blue Jerseys with white stripes down the sides. They have a website with contact info on it, so you might try contacting them. And one of their sponsors is Long Beach Cyclery. Their rides originate out of the Long Beach Marina area and typically head south on PCH into Orange County.

    The only other club would be Lightning Velo. They also have blue jerseys, but with pink/magenta stripes down the sides. I believe they ride a lot from Kings Bike Shop in Seal Beach (they use PCH through Orange County quite a bit for weekday morning rides).

    I know those two clubs and it wasn't them. I knew I should've taken a picture of it! Dang! thanks though. I'll keep googling. Or see if I can remember what was on those shorts.

    I'm thinking maybe it wasn't a store but a club. A small club. One of the people who was riding was a pro female triathlete. So maybe its a tri-club?

    There's a "West River Cycles" in the LBC, but that doesn't match the description of the kit you saw.

    Close! Cool website though. I should check them out sometime. Their blog has Nelson Vails on it. Funny, we used to ride back in the day in NYC.
