Josh Cady gets his miles where he can, when he can. Like a lot of us our commutes can help add some much needed milage, when time is tight. Josh flys the Moots flag on the GrassMoots Team…he writes:
…..It’s groundhog day. Again. Living in Los Angeles makes everyday feel a lot like the day before. Cycling here can either make you complacent or motivated. After being moved here for work two years ago, I chose to be motivated. I’m not sure if it is the weather or the location, but there is a lot here to be thankful for.
I get to ride to work every day of the year. Sometimes that means I follow a familiar, less inviting path
but a lot of times I find myself on my cyclocross bike, burning up the local fireroads prior to reporting to work.
The majority of the time I’m riding my Moots Psychlo-X RSL. I’m continually challenged in the local road, mountain, and cyclocross race series so I feel like getting on the Psycho-X covers all the bases. In the summer I switch out the front chain rings and run a 50/38 or 53/39. In the fall/winter, the bike gets prepped and run in a pure cross setup. This year, with Cyclocross Nationals close to home, I’ve let the bike stay setup in cross mode a little longer, something I’ll be dialing in until January 2014.
Where ever you are, getting up early to ride is often a good idea. Here in LA, you get a little more for your money.
