Jedidiah Jenkins

@jedidiahjenkins
Los Angeles, CA

Jed is a story teller. From the cartels of Mexico, to the mega-churches of the US, to the Amazon in Bolivia, he has seen some crazy things. Jed speaks about choosing your life. He made the frightening decision to leave a job he loved to pursue an untested dream: bicycling to Patagonia and writing a book about it. What an idiot. But here he is, doing it, and he has quite a few things to say. He’s come to believe that living life with intention, curiosity, and wonder are foundational in the pursuit of joy.

Randi Burley

@corenda
Los Angeles, CA

Growing up in Windsor Hills, CA, Randi's intro to cycling came from working at the beloved Inglewood bike shop, City of Bicycles. For the past decade, riding brakeless or road bikes she's kept returning to cycling. What keeps her coming back is the amazing community and ability to get out of her head, when out there nothing else matters but the climb. Through being a cyclist and an Electrical Engineer, it’s her goal to always beat the odds and inspire others like her to do the same.

Tyler Schwartz

@archbishop_cholula
Santa Monica, CA

Tyler is an unlikely product of Southern California – a beach rat turned competitive cyclist. Exploring by bike with friends from an early age, riding became much more than just a means of transportation. It wasn’t long before he turned to racing to get his competitive fix and eventually rode his way onto top teams across various disciplines in the sport. With experiences ranging from competing in UCI stage races, to one-day classics in Western Europe, the cyclocross circuit of North America, and dirt biking in the Rocky Mountains he is no stranger to the joy and freedoms that two wheels have to offer. After a long hiatus from cycling he has returned with a bright smile and a more holistic approach to the sport that he calls home. These days you can catch him tearing up your local group ride or bombing singletrack in LA… most likely wearing a t shirt.
