Wake the fuck up for a true Midnight Run. Race starts at 4AM at Tang’s. Race through the closed off course for the LA Marathon. 26 miles of zero traffic. Last year’s race was one of the greatest things I’ve ever done, except for the vomit part. There are racers coming from as far away as Portland and Seattle for this one. A truly unique event for Los Angeles, this needs to be experienced. Thanks to Roadblock for having a vision and making it happen.
Here is the vid for last year’s race….

Recently with all the rain that’s been soaking (and snowing) L.A., saturday turned out to be a beautifully clear day – but still a windy and cold day for us spoiled socal kids. our good friends Sean of TOLA and Beaver, organized another fun and always inclusive race from mar vista park on the westside all the way to echo park lake, where you had to take a photo of lady of the lake statue, and then back. congrats to keiron aka coach k, riccardo, and all the other winners and race participants. winners were given custom medals and choices of prizes provided by all the race sponsors, including TRAFIK tees. thanks to all the participants who came out and we look forward to sponsoring this race again next year! enjoy the pics at our flickr!

Glad to have Banksy back in town. He’s had some pieces up in the Melrose/Hollywood area that have literally been cut off the walls. Hope these last longer. See more pics HERE.
The Chubby Boob “Revenge of the Nerds” race went down in Riverside this past weekend. It was a great way to kick off the racing season with a really fun college themed race thrown by Chubby Boob, ACE, TOLA and Two Rabbits Studios.
Riders had to hit multiple checkpoints where there was a panty raid, beer pong, and a paintball shooting gallery. Each racer was “graded” depending on when they arrived and if they could earn “extra credit”. The race manifests were report cards. Whose crazy ideas was this again?
Although some people got turned around on the unfamiliar streets, it ended up being an awesome event with great weather, clear streets, and a gang of fools showing up to rep LA. Great job putting together such a fun event. Check out some pics from Chubby Boob blog and TRAFIK Flickr.
It went down last week all the way on the other side of the planet, down undah – again. With the screening last November in Melbourne and the beginning of this year in Perth, Australia has been showing L.A. mad love! Our gracious hosts, Bike Jam & Artrage are proof of the strong tie between the bike community and the arts. Home to innovative shops like The Little Mule, Deus, venues like The Bakery its obvious the Aussies are into good shit (…and BMX Bandits, Cut Copy haha jk). Here are some pics and links to the event that include a group ride, jam session, and screening of To Live & Ride in L.A. in HD! Thanks to the riders of Perth and shout out to Herman and company for organizing and promoting such an awesome event!
also, the audio stream of director David Rowe’s interview on australian radio RTR FM 92.1… its starts just about halfway through. http://www.rtrfm.com.au/restream/13277 hear what he has to say about riding in L.A.!
WWW.TOLIVEANDRIDEINLA.COM now available in Japanese for all our readers in Japan and those uber-hipster-trilingual kids from L.A. that can order their dragon rolls in Japanese. Maybe it was a practical functionality to add, but mostly it just looks cool!
btw, we have mixi page too: http://mixi.jp/view_community.pl?id=5299115
And while we’re at it, here’s a previously unreleased video we made when Rick went out to Cyclemode in Tokyo. The video features Tomity, Nasty, and Rick checks out a bike polo session too. We love Japan.
