Cyclists of LA #001

To start off this project, we introduce Louis Gonzales. Co-founder of Armed With a Bike and bicycle delivery for Jason's Wine & Spirits in Downtown Los Angeles. You're sure to see him cruising around the heart of LA.

We asked Louis what he likes most about cycling...

"Cycling gives me freedom from myself. When I first started cycling at the age of 15, I would overthink myself into depression, and even now at my current age, cycling still helps. Depression isn't there too much lately, but the anxiety stayed. If it wasn't for cycling, I probably would have chosen a much darker path in life."
