Machines is celebrating our 5th Anniversary! It feels so special to get to share this milestone with our community, from Bike Effect who was one of our first retailers ever, to Pedaler's Fork, host of Machines' Bikes and Brunch for many years, to Geaux Party, our fave tacos on the East Side. And of course, all of you! This community is a huge part of how Machines has grown from an idea in Jenn's living room to the brand we are today. Please come out ride with us, or join us for the post-ride beach party. We've love to see you there, and the tacos are on us! Xo, Machines
Meet Up: 8:30 am, Bike Effect
Roll Out: 9 am, Bike Effect
Mid Ride Stop: Pedaler's Fork
We'll meet up at Bike Effect, one of our longest running retailers and strongest supporters since the very beginning! Roll out and head up Sullivan Canyon to Dirt Mulholland. Plan for about 10-15 miles of dirt, totally road-bike-friendly. Quick pit stop at Pedaler's Fork, then descend Topanga Canyon straight onto the sand at Will Rogers Beach, where Geaux Party and the Bike Effect team will be waiting with lunch and cold drinks! Yep, we're bringing all of our favorite crews together for a ripping fun day in the hills with a bit of dirt and just the right amount of beachside hangs.
THE BEACH PARTY
Location: Will Rogers Beach, Near the Temescal Intersection at PCH
Time: 12 ish - 3 ish
If you aren't up for a ride, feel free to come straight to the beach! We'll plan on posting up along the beach near the Temescal/PCH intersection, but check the Facebook event for final details day of. Hope to see you there!

THE UP TO DATE DETAILS
THE FINE PRINT
- This is an intermediate road ride with a bit of climbing. We'll keep a friendly pace on the flats and regroup at the top of climbs. This isn't a hammer-fest, but it's recommended that riders are comfortable on rides of 2,000'+ elevation.
- The dirt on Sullivan Canyon and Dirt Mulholland is road bike friendly. It is recommended riders are familiar with riding road bikes off road or handing light gravel.
- Ride is unsupported. Tools to fix flats and minor mechanicals are required, as well as snacks to fuel up along the way.
- Clipless pedals and helmets are required.
