Darin "Crash" MaxwellOur own Darin "Crash" Maxwell was featured on the Kona Bicycles website! He talked to Kona about his annual Push-A-Kona ride, now in it's 8th year. Here's the article from Kona.

Darrin Maxwell from Orange County’s The Path Bike Shop organizes a hard core backcountry ride every year called Push-a-Kona. This is his 8th year doing it. It’s a treacherous route, has a bike weight limit (long travel bikes only) has a great turn out and a lot of involvement. Here’s an explanation of the motivation behind the event from the man himself. This year’s Push-A-Kona goes December 3rd. And oh yeah, you’re allowed to NOT ride a Kona, if you have to.

The Path Bike Shop was featured in the October 2011 issue of Bicycling Magazine in their featured article, "America's Best Bike Shops." Be sure to check it out, we're pretty stoked!
