Old Man Mountain recently sent their community and content manager Charlie to Los Angeles to spend a few days with the Lowelifes Respectable Citizens Club during their first trailwork campout of the year. He put together a short video capturing his time with the thriving community of passionate MTB advocates, which you can watch here…
Charlie Kohlmeier hadn’t flown with a bikepacking rig, ridden in Southern California, or shot a video on his own before his recent trip to LA to spend a weekend with Lowelifes Respectable Citizens Club (LRCC), so his weekend adventure with the group was full of firsts. Thankfully, they made his experience as smooth as possible by welcoming him with open arms, and as someone who is passionate about trail building, he felt right at home working alongside the group, who he said blew him away with their dedication, passion, hospitality, and courage.
In Charlie’s words, “When you think of Los Angeles, mountain biking probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But, if you look a little closer, you will find a thriving community of mountain bike advocates dedicated to uncovering trails lost to time & building more access for all user groups.” The LRCC, which was founded in 2019, has donated more than 7,000 hours to building, restoring, and maintaining trails in the Angeles National Forest to date. You can watch Charlie’s video below to get a sense of how they fill those hours, which looks like a perfect blend of meaningful work and good times to us.
