While it looked like LA was going for the hottest year on record, we’ve been blessed with some early June Gloom coverage making it May a far more tolerable month to ride than March. Weird.
So here I am, doing my job again catching you up what you missed.
The USA Cycling National Championships took hold in Chattanooga, TN again, living up to the excitement brought about by the race’s unpredictability:
Andrew Talansky(Cannondale) took home his first national time trial championship, while Kristin Armstrong took home her fourth, but first since 2007.
Wow! How exciting was that race to watch!! Intense! Congrats to @meganguarnier of Boels Dolman Cycling Team #nationalchampion, @corynrivera of @uhcprocycling and @taylerwiles of @velociosports – well deserved drink indeed! Could not take our eyes off the live stream watching these 3 & @evelyn_stevens of Boels & Amber Neben of @visitdallascycling battle it out…and the monster effort of the chase group! Great race.

Gorgeous way to honor those lost riding in San Diego.
Yeah, I finally tried to climb Eldred Street, the third steepest street in the USA. What say you? Phil Gaimon: smiling. Me: Near death!

Eldred looks ominous. No other descriptors needed.
Yes, I’m jealous, but many members of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition took part in the annual Climate Ride, raising over $100,000 in the process for a great cause. Earth.

If you can’t deduce from the photo, the Climate Ride took part over the northern coast of California. Jealous.

Okay. The entire coastline isn’t accessible by bike. But the Avenue of the Giants is a great way around.

They are uncoordinated. But finishers of the Climate Ride.
