California Muni Weekend - Los Angeles, October 26-28, 2018

I'm happy to bring this year's CA Muni Weekend to Los Angeles. We will ride a very diverse spectrum of trails, from high up in the mountains to within sight of the ocean! Also, we will have easier options for beginner-intermediate riders so that everyone will have as much fun as possible!

Please follow the event page on Facebook, where the detailed program has just been announced.

I would love to see as many of you as possible there! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Cheers, Ben

T-shirt?

Any concept ideas for a t-shirt? When Jamie ran the event, the t-shirt featured "CA MUNI WEEKEND" written like the HOLLYWOOD sign with a tiny unicyclist atop one of the letters.

It might be funny to reference the upcoming ballot initiative attempting to break California into 3 states. Show a map of CA with the proposed divisions; place a dark circle (tire) around the map and a diagonal red stripe running through the center; write "CALIFORNIA MUNI WEEKEND 2018" around the sidewall of the tire.

Or, if you actually think splitting the state into three parts is a good idea, skip the red stripe running through the center...

We definitely plan on having a T-shirt! Julie from Santa Cruz is working on a design right now. It might be Halloween related
