Now this story right here really means a whole lot me. As we all know last Friday there was a terrible accident at the Los Angeles Critical Mass bike ride that took the life of 18 year old Jerico Vivar Colata. It was said that he died after crashing into a concrete wall near the UCLA campus. Apparently he lost control of his bike during a left turn which caused him to crash which ultimately took his life. Young Jerico was not wearing a helmet which more than likely would have saved his life in this crash. Since Friday I have thought about this tragedy many times and I have been encouraging many young riders to start wearing a helmet.
Right now I am calling out to every cyclist in help to get back Jerico’s bike back. It really sickens me to think that some asshole out there would actually steal this kids bike ! I mean who really has the nerve to steal a bike at the scene where this kid just lost his life !!! THIS IS BULLSHIT ! I personally will reward anyone who can help get this bike back for his family in time for his funeral. I can not begin to tell all of you out there how much this really pisses me off. Whoever you are who took Jerico’s bike just know this, YOU ARE THE NASTIEST SCUM THAT ANYONE WILL EVER FIND ON THIS PLANET AND I REALLY HOPE KARMA TAKES ITS TURN ON YOU ! I EVEN HOPE YOU DIE RIDING THIS KIDS BIKE BECAUSE NOBODY DESERVES TO RIDE THAT BIKE EXCEPT JERICO ! I did not know Jerico personally but I for sure will be on the look out for his bike. So I beg all of you out there if you know anything at all to please contact me via facebook or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Tomorrow is gearing up to be quite an event after watching this video from Kenny Arimoto showing off some of the epic street spots they are going to hit up in tomorrows competition. I really can not wait to see the footage from this event. I was planning on going but because of other reasons I am not going to be able to make it out to the event. So if you are in the Palo Alto, Ca. area be sure to get out and show some support if not compete yourself.
Now this HIP POUCH by ROAD RUNNER is just way to awesome to pass up. I know I have been a Pabst Blue Ribbon drinker for quite some time and I know many of you out there have been as well. So if you are in the market for a new HIP POUCH then I suggest you check out the ROAD RUNNER STORE and pick yourself up one of these before they are all gone.
After watching this video there is not much more to say except this 17 year old kid Chase LaRue is truly gifted. Steven Jensen posted this video up saying that after only a week Chase has been able to throw truckdrivers with ease. That is incredible just in itself because there is not many people that can throws trucks as it is including pros. I really hope Chase keeps on riding because it this pace he is going to be better than any rider out there.
Addison Zawada quickly became one of my favorite riders after meeting him at this year 2012 Red Bull ride + style 2. This young rider is not only fast but one of the most humble down to earth people you will ever meet. Recently Addison took a trip to San Diego, Ca. to do a photo shoot with MATT LINGO for his website called REC FAIL. I know both MATT LINGO and LEADER BIKES were more than stoked to see Addison come to Southern California. Be sure to check out the FULL STORY at REC FAIL.
I have always loved going to Critical Mass bike rides but when I got a chance to help out with a local “Kidical Mass” ride in my community of Long Beach, Ca. I could not help but want to get involved with a awesome event like this for kids. I must give a special thank you to one of the MASHAFIX.com sponsors that donated over $1000 in brand new bicycle HELMETS for these young kids. So from all the kids and parents you helped out and THE WORKSHOP LB we give a HUGE THANK YOU to PRO-TEC HELMETS.

On Sunday August 19, 2012 a large group of parents and their children got together at Los Cerritos Park which is located in Bixby Knolls, Ca.(long beach). This was not just any ordinary bicycle ride. In fact, this is something very special that is put on every month to help young bicycle riders learn to ride as a group while also learning all of the laws of the road to help keep them safe. Kids from all ages showed up on this particular Sunday afternoon to take part in this group bike ride. The Workshop LB has been taking part in this event by offering free bike tune ups and maintenance tips to all parents and kids that come out to Kidical Mass, but this time was even more special because PRO-TEC Helmets has teamed up with The Workshop LB and Mashafix.com to provide free helmets to these young riders. PRO-TEC believes in tradition and so many many adults have grown up wearing PRO-TEC helmets that it is why we pass along this tradition to the kids that come out for this event. We encourage anyone in the LA County and Long Beach, Ca. area to come out and take part in Kidical Mass.
