Excited to finally confirm the date for this year’s event. We’ll meet at the normal spot, Sunset Triangle Park in Silver Lake, at 745am. For some resources see the summary from 2013 or my Feel My Legs category with the 8 years of history. Also trying to put on Thus Climbed Zarathustra (4th one?) on that Saturday. It’s a combination alley cat / stair climb event that utilizes the stairways in the same neighborhoods as Feel My Legs. History of posts about that here.
There is a facebook event page, where I’ll be posting updates.
A few points worth reiterating for FML:
While a few cyclists are competing for points, the majority are out there to simply ride up some of the steepest hills in Los Angeles. It is open to everyone.
There are no entry fees or prizes.
Between hills is neutral; we ride together. At the top of each hill we wait for everyone else to make it. If you are fast you will be sitting around a lot.
Please no jock mentality or bad attitudes. If you think cyclocross is too crazy and you wish USAC had more races than this is probably not the event for you.
No spectator or support cars on the hills. We try and keep this low key as it’s busy enough in some of these neighborhoods. Spectators encouraged to ride bikes. Same with photographers and journalists.
Rain does not cancel. In fact, it has rained a surprising number of times on this day over the years. Check your almanac.
We will group ride from the last hill back to the start.
Please review the write-ups from previous years!
Hill order TBD.
Thanks for reading, hope to see you there.
