Topanga Creek Outpost

@etaphd wanted to hit some trails on a fun bike and the @allcitycycles Log Lady checked all the boxes. @onion.sauce (evil genius) suggested a note book hand made from @roguejourneymen present to accompany the bike for her partner. Here she is with her new bike and “look what the guys in Topanga made for you...” gift to keep the peace at home. ☮️

The Outpost is about 4 miles as the crow flies from the Pacific Ocean and our neighbor is Topanga State Park so our Saturday ride often has some spectacular views. Join us for the community, riding, comradeship, hills and views. We leave right at 8 AM and ride somewhere different every week. Always hills. Always fun. Always a good crowd of people. See you around 7:30/7:45 tomorrow? 2-3 hour ride.

We found @tobiedepauw lurking through the hallways of @interbike pimping @peopleforbikes new app and web interface for finding routes all over the place. People for Bikes is the non profit that the entire industry supports as our way to get more people on bikes. Download their app and find some riding. #peopleforbikes #lurking #imforbikes

So humbled and honored and exhausted. We wrapped up 3 great days at @interbike getting the Innovation Retailer award from the bike industry with recognition for being on our game trying to think out of the box. Our #unpredictyourwednesday #bikepacking rental program was noted as a part of future growth for us. We are humbled being on stage with @718_cyclery @absolute_bikes_co @bloomingtoncycle @wheelhousedetroit @outbackbikes So nice to hear the other amazing stuff out there happening. So kind to be acknowledged. And with @dave_conk making it on his first try ever to the @probicyclemech @parktoolblue mechanic challenge finals we left with giant smiles on our faces. #interbikeisthebest #interbike

@dave_conk casually entered the @interbike @parktoolblue @probicyclemech Challenge yesterday when we arrived at Interbike. Low and behold he made it to the top 4 mechanics of all that entered from all bike shops and is in the finals. We are excited for him and it’s phenomenal. He was one of the first mechanics to enter so we had no idea his time would be the one to beat. #parktoolblue #parktool #mechanicschallenge #shopmechanic

We are doing some important bike shop business in Reno during @interbike - Here you can see @andrewgld and @onion.sauce testing how well their belongings stay in their pockets when tossed around similar to bike crashing and being thrown over handle bars. #crashtestdummies

@dave_conk entered the @probicyclemech @parktoolblue Mechanics Challenge for a little fun during @interbike and bested his first competition changing a flat and is moving on to the second challenge. Nice Dave. #promechaniclife #parktools #mechanicschallenge #interbike

So much fun. We like bikes and have gone to @interbike every year for the past 20 years to see people, test new products and have a fun shop road trip. Like many things the internet has disrupted businesses including trade shows. Everyone gets access to what used to be first seen by bike nerds like us and it’s hurt their attendance for both exhibitors and attendees. Our trade show has a few fewer vendors and we were cautious we might be disappointed. Instead, we had an incredible time yesterday. @northstar_california is amazing, there were a bunch of brands and had a super time. Plus we had a buffet at the end of the day. To our our friends and colleagues in the bike biz who are not here, it’s a really good time so far. 👍 #interbike

@rjrabe was kind enough to demonstrate the hydrology of the water bottles he designed. Besides being an extraordinary artist, his real life skills in bike riding up hills are on brand. Thanks for sending him our way for the Saturday Ride @latigocoffee @perfectobanana Wish you were in town,too. #art #waterbottle #waterbottleart #hydrology #hydrologylife #rjrabe #latigocoffee #latigocoffeeroasters #gameon
