Back in October 2012, our beloved Centurions were stolen from us near the Long Beach Shoreline. It was an unfortunate and bitter moment because we loved our vintage cyclery. A lot of these 1980's steel bikes are being turned into fixies (blah) by urban hipsters here in L.A. So I had very little faith in ever recovering it. What I did want, though, is for the thieves to be caught. Even though we both have since replaced the Centurions with more expensive and faster 1980's and 90's Cannodale aluminum bikes, we continued our quest to search for the Centurions.

Our first Brewcyclers ride has wrapped up and just as quickly as it passed, we are already working hard on preparing for our future rides. We have to admit, we did not expect such a big crowd for our first ride and as much as we hate to admit it....we weren't exactly prepared for it. We both had the opportunity to test ride the route prior to the event so we knew what to expect and made some minor adjustments to the route to better suit our needs.
