Hans Rey likely needs no introduction, though his latest adventure might. Los Angeles is one of those cities that a lot of people think they know, but even those who have lived there for years might not be aware of the trails and hidden gems tucked away in the hills. Hans wanted to traverse this massive city by bike in just five days, and to do so, he invited two of his friends – MTB legend Missy Giove and legendary bass player, Timmy C.

Day one starts out with Missy and some incredible riding in the San Gabriel Mountains from the top of Mount Wilson, to Pasadena. Stay tuned for parts 2-5!

Convicted drug smuggler. Good grief. Yeah, ’cause she was hanging out with Pablo Escobar. You remind me of the kid that got beat up for complaining to the teacher about us not getting enough homework.

So if you make a mistake, youre screwed for life? Have some compassion… she is really a cool person who tells it like it is. She has paid her dues… good to see her back.

Missy never got anybody addicted to anything. Can you say that about your very own gp?

Jeez. GB. She was only caught with a small bit of Mary Jane. Just 380 lbs.
Just a bit… For personal use only.
She plead guilty and got what? 5 months of home detention? To avoid prison time.
I wonder what that much weed looks like.

380 pounds?!?!
Actually, having met her once and seeing how super chill she was it’s almost believable that was for personal use.

Thanks OD. I don’t care if people smoke pot per se, but if you have 380 pounds you got it from some bad people and are supporting real hard core drug dealers.

“Base player”? As in baseball? Or do you mean the word that looks like a type of fish?

Drug smuggling? Don’t care. Missy rocks. She was amazing when I started biking back in the early nineties, and still is.

I heard marijuanas can make you into a really bad bad person. I knew a guy who took a joint once back in high school and he became the baddest in town. Now he still gets flashbacks just from one marijuanas that he snorted over 16 years ago.

Jeez people. It marijuana. I don’t care if she was caught with every plant in the world. The only crime should have been for non payment of taxes for the profits she made.

When Chuck Norris freerides, he wears elbow/knee protection… Missy wears a piranha.

So cool. Bringing mountain biking back to its punk rock roots. I jumped ahead and watched episode 2 which was even better.
