The Cub House

At the end of the day, do you ever think about how two wheels became so powerful? What about four wheels? Bicycles and automobiles pair well with transportation. However, adventure, exploration, family, friends, fun, danger, pain, role models, and fashionistas also come to mind.

With cycling, some rides are slow, while others are fast. Some easy, others excruciatingly painful. Some boring, others radical. Some dull, others fresh. Some bland, others pop.

However, do you ever think about why we accept boring, dull, and bland, in our daily lives? Why not attempt to make every experience meaningful, memorable, and sacred?

Well, The Cub House, a miniature pop-up shop, which is "not a bike shop," is changing the way cyclists and people approach life. Located in South Pasadena, stop by for "free life advice."

Now, while affiliations can be confusing, The Cub House was started by Sean, from Team Dream Team and Ringtail.  All part of a trendy collective based in Los Angeles, which is frequently mentioning #LASucksForCycling, The Cub House is home base for stoke, smiles, and plenty of high fives.

For me, the lifestyle cycling movement was inspired by Thereabouts #1 with Angus and Lachlan Morton. It exploded this past Saturday, August 6, when a buddy and I rolled with some of the most unique, excited, and genuine Los Angeles cyclists. Quite simply, these people love riding bicycles. Now, I'll let the pictures do plenty of talking.
