“If you want a slice of the cycling scene over here … Golden Saddle is the spot,” Taylor Phinney texts me as a good place to meet.
The Loz Feliz neighborhood bike shop is esoteric to its core, equipped with amazing cycling visuals and the same genuine characters you would expect at your own local bike shop.
Fresh from a tune-up, Phinney’s beautiful BMC cross bike awaits outside in the warm afternoon air, and the Olympian is eager to ride.
“One of the things I will always look forward to in my career is the Olympics. I think about Rio every time I get on my bike”

We had a nice ride last Friday!
