You couldn’t have asked for a better day to hold this years Cranksgiving in Los Angeles. The event started in New York as a charity food drive / bike messenger alley-cat race to gather food for the needy. It’s now held in many cities across the country, bringing the cycling community together to pedal for a great cause. Ozzie and the team of messengers from U-LOCK-MOB held it down here in LA gathering 800lbs of goods for Para Los Niños.

The race part of the event was hectic for some and smooth sailing for others. There were checkpoints, manifests and the added thrill of racing around the city streets with some of LA’s best street cyclists. AMAZING racers Kym and Alli had a blast competing in their first LA cranksgiving. Coming off a bad showing at the LAGP Lynn Kennedy was happy to take the ladies first place. The men’s race was taken by Hernan Montenegro who even had time to stop and drop off a bag load at the finish midway through the race.

This years event gathered national attention with the help of the NBC’s Today Show joining several of the Cranksgiving events. Here in Los Angeles we were joined by Maria Shriver, her daughter Christina and local news caster Holly Hannula. It was a fun day of cycling in Los Angeles for a good cause.

First off, this is horrible riding position and it was only a matter of time before he ate it…

Second, the Aeroskoke still gets online love even though we all know it’s heavy as a brick…

Last week the alleycat king, Lucas Brunelle, was a victim of road rage in the streets of Boston. After being assaulted by a cabbie who tried to flee the scene, Lucas stepped in front of the taxi and ended up on the hood, speeding through boston. It could have ended a lot worse than it did.

The press on this story was huge as court wrapped up. This has quickly become a big story in Boston and beyond. Lucas is upset by the drivers bail being set at $1000 after punching and then hitting Lucas with his taxi. Do you think $1000 was a fair bail amount?

Wearing a skirt while cycling can be risky…Trust us, we know, that’s why you never see us riding in skirts. But some of our lady-friends are all about that skirt-lyfe and need an easy solution to this problem. The last thing you want is your skirt getting caught in a wheel or chainring. Penny In Yo’ Pants is a simple DIY #CYCLEHACK for the Ladies.
