TransAngeles

The idea of this trip was to traverse one of the biggest cities in the world on bikes in 5 days, not only showing the incredible nature and mountains surrounding this city but also its diverse neighbor hoods, suburbs and famous landmarks. When this city was founded its full name was “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora Reina de los Angeles sobre el Rio Porciuncula.” (If your Spanish is rusty, that translates to “The town of our lady queen of the angels on the Porciuncula River.”) a.k.a. L.A. or Los Angeles.

Hans Rey wants to bike on the moon.

OK, so the idea may be a bit of a stretch—NASA turned him down when he asked—but if there’s anyone who would have a chance of making it happen, it’d be Hans. He’s ridden in more than 70 countries. He’s taught a chimp to bike. He counts Tim Commerford from Rage Against the Machine as a riding buddy. He’s appeared on more than 350 magazine covers. He’s bungee jumped into a river on his bike, and President George H.W. Bush shook his front tire.

When talking about someone like Hans Rey, it’s hard to know where to begin. Walking around his house in Laguna, CA, the menagerie of souvenirs crowding the walls read like a world map: masks from Kenya, rocks from near the Great Pyramids, and a life-sized replica of a terra-cotta warrior from his trip to China are a few examples. And that’s just in his living room.

Tutti Frutti Epic

_MG_16_08_Tutti_Frutti_1419 The “Tutti Frutti Epic” MTB Tour is a one day bucket-list ride that includes most of the new and existing trails at the Carosello 3000 Mountain Park in the resort town Livigno, Italy. Starting from 2017 this will be a permanently marked tour that everybody can ride at their own pace*. The 45km long tour, includes only a few hundred meters of uphill pedaling, since all the trails can be accessed by gondolas and chairlifts. Riders don’t have to be as qualified as my partner for this maiden tour, Brian Lopes. All of the trails are either red or blue (intermediate or beginner), suitable for most skill levels and perfect for Cross Country, All Mountain and Enduro bikes.
