Coffee Time explores the connection between coffee, cafes, community, and cycling. Tim is owner of Heavy Water Coffee, a coffee roasting business that just opened its first physical location in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. As the “hardest working person in coffee” (Jeff’s words, not Tim’s) Tim is hands on with every part of the coffee and cafe experience; selecting unique beans to import from South and Latin America, roasting them, training a staff of exceptional baristas, and even jumping behind the counter to pull shots and serve customers.

Concluding our 3 part series on logistics, we focus on community. I spoke to 6 Los Angeles cyclists about their own experience with community, and specifically what was the first group that really launched their cycling forward. It was incredible to hear how community provided a deeper, more fulfilling experience for everyone, and how that experience has kept them riding more consistently and with greater purpose. Community is also an incredible way to learn new skills and deepen your cycling knowledge. It’s likely that people in a community close to you ride bikes in the way you aspire to rid ..read more

The Discipline of Feeling Good

4M ago
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but it’s ok to feel good. Whether you’re on the bike, or off the bike, feeling physically and mentally good is a beneficial place to be. Cycling focusses far too much on suffering and pain. The old saying “it doesn’t get easier, you just get faster,” is such a toxic way to approach fitness. The truth is, feeling good is an important part of maintaining a lifetime of fitness. So ride your own pace, take days off, and truly appreciate the times that you feel good ..read more
