5th Annual "YOU'RE NOT WORTHY" (Summer) Century Ride - Le Grand Finale

DTLA Messengers ride to Stone Brew, Escondido CA for the 10th and FINAL time!

As many of you may know, this will be our FINAL and 10th century ride to Stone Brew. It has been a successful 5yrs of centuries (9 centuries for a total of 972 miles), but since the opening of the Stone Brewery in Pasadena, we've decided to end it all this year.

JUNGLE is planning to stop at the 1000 mile marker (approx Seal Beach) for a quick celebration and consumption of Bastards to celebrate. Upon arrival to the Brewery, this ride will have completed a total of 1080 miles.

With that said WE want everyone to spread the word and join us is saying farewell Stone Escondido. But not to worry. Animal has started a "STONE LOKAL CENTURY" ride, which will start in DTLA and end at Stone Brew Pasadena, covering all over Los Angeles.

This is a Medium to Fast Paced Ride
With a total of 3 Rest Stops

There will be full detailed route/maps handed out on the morning of the ride.

Many choose to drive along side the cyclists and aid them all the way.

This is also a good event to visit a great brewery in So. Cal.
A support vehicle is highly recommended if you plan to get bastard' out!

We highly recommend to bring at least 2 tubes, CO2, water, energy bars, food, cell phone, beer and your LIVER!

RTBL - Team Time Trial

From RTBL (Ride The Black Line):

SUMMER RACE SERIES: TEAM DREAM TEAM TRIAL TIME

After much deliberation over all the details, Team Dream Bicycling Team and Ride The Black Line have settled on the perfect event to open the 2013 Summer Race Series at Encino Velodrome.

The Team Dream Team Trial Time will be a night full of Team Pursuits, Team Sprints and a dash of Flying 200’s. This will be an important event in the Summer Race Series because it presents a big opportunity for teams to grab some early points for the Summer Race Series Team Trophy. Take a look at what the each time trial event will be worth on June 26th:

TIME TRIALS (individual and team time trials)
1st place - 10 points per rider
2nd place - 7 points per rider
3rd place - 5 points per rider
4th place - 3 points per rider
5th place - 2 points per rider
6th place - 1 point per rider

What does that mean? That means a four-man Team Pursuit all riding for the same club can grab up to 40 points (44 points with the participation points) for their team and get started with a good lead in the SRS Team Trophy standings. On top of that, since this is the only SRS2013 event in which women race separately and all female racers score DOUBLE POINTS, a three-woman Team Pursuit racing for the same club can pocket up to 60 points (66 including participation points) to get their team started! How awesome is that?

To sweeten the deal, TDBT and RTBL are putting together some great prizes for the fastest riders of the night just to encourage everyone to pedal that much harder.

So start putting your DREAM TEAM together for a night of Team Time Trials and remember that any victorious Team Pursuit or Team Sprint composed of riders in different clubs will have the points distributed accordingly. So choose your teammates wisely and get those points!

LA Culebra - Father's Day Bike Ride

Please join us as we support LA Culebra Park - Father's Day Ride, hosted by our very own Scott Free of the DTLA Messenger Family.

The event welcomes all ages and families. The moderate pace adventure ride is estimated to be about an hour long. The ride will cover ground from Highland Park to Pasadena and back to LA Culebra Park. At the end of the ride, we will all enjoy the family style pot-luck.

During the Father's Day Ride, we encourage for everyone not riding to bring a T-shirt so our Sons/Daugters can silk screen a shirt for Daddy. The cost for silk screening will be $5, given you provide your own shirt.

Kids will also take advantage of arts & crafts, workshops, including a "fix-a-flat" session.

Bike ride meet is at 10:00am. We plan to roll out at 11:00am.
Ride is expected to finish back at LA Culebra at 1:00p, just in time for lunch.

From our family to yours, we thank you in advance for the support!

When:  Sunday, June 16, 2013
Where:  Tierra de la Culebra Park
Time:  10:00am - 5:00pm

RIP Cris CONO



On behalf of all of the DTLA Family....
May you RIDE IN PARADISE Cris Cono!


from the memorial fund website:

We are saddened to announce the loss of our dear friend, teammate, co-conspirator, and colleague Christopher Cono (2/25/1965 - 5/27/2013). The organizer of the Fortune 700 race series, a long-time employee of Velo Pasadena, and a usual suspect on all the local group rides, Chris was a true leader and advocate in the cycling community since the 1980s. Week after week, Chris could be found racing passionately and vigorously on the LA crit scene. He was a unique character and great teammate who will be greatly missed by all of us.

Chris leaves behind a wife, Akiyo, and two sons.

Cash and check donations for the family can be made at the following locations or online here at gofundme.com:

- Velo Pasadena (2562 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91107)
- Velo Studio (4150 Riverside Dr. Burbank, CA 91505)
- Pedal Spin Studio (266 Monterey Rd. South Pasadena, CA 91030)
- SweetSalt Food Shop (10218 Riverside Dr, Toluca Lake, CA 91602)

Please make checks out to Akiyo Kozakaya. All proceeds will go directly to Chris’ family.


The financial goal is just a starting point to cover immediate expenses however the long-term goal is much greater. Anything you can do is immensely appreciated.
