Cadence’s TOC Jersey
Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 4.58.56 PM

One of the new pieces in the recent Cadence drop is this Tour of California inspired jersey. You can’t go wrong with Cali vibes with vibrant colors with a great fit. See more at Cadence. Who’s going to the ATOC this year? Bummed I’m not going to be able to make it.

Précisions with Josh Bedford

There aren’t many BMX videos featured here on the site, but then again, there aren’t a lot of BMX videos shot as beautifully as this one.

“Précisions is an ongoing short film series presented via Defgrip. This series features creativity, expression and most importantly précisions within BMX. Second to feature is Josh Bedford with an eye for spots and a less is more attitude. Josh’s riding speaks for itself, incorporating speed and power combined with his natural creative outlook. All of which is done with a classic captivating Yorkshire personality. Whilst filming Josh sustained a severe injury, cutting the release short. In his own words “if you roll the dice..”.

Please wish Josh a rapid recovery and enjoy what we got down beforehand.”

Very nice, Defgrip.

Nickalas Blades’ Photorealistic Oil Paintings of Bicycles
Screen Shot 2015-05-04 at 11.58.24 PM

Yesterday this artist, Nickalas Blades, left a comment on a post, which then directed me to his body of work. Photorealistic oil paintings are something I can’t wrap my head around, as far as a process to end product is concerned, yet Nickalas Blades’ work makes it look easy. Or at least he blurs the lines between photos and paintings. Head on over to his site for more!

Rapha Prestige Launceston

This looks amazing!

“As the sun set over Northern Tasmania’s Tamar Valley on Friday 13th March 2015, the Rapha Prestige Launceston began, with riders gathering on the deck of the Barrel Room Restaurant at Velo Wines. Teams huddled together, nervously discussing tactics and tyre/cog selections for the following day’s 170km adventure to the highest point of Tasmania’s only alpine region, the Ben Lomond National Park. Unbeknownst to the riders, just a week prior the summit had unseasonably received its first snow of the year. The brutality of the Tasmanian landscape and climate would be a defining feature of the weekend.”

Not that I needed another reason to go ride in Tasmania.

Oakley’s Greg Lemond Ride in SF!
01-LEMOND-6

Last week in San Francisco, Oakley, Mash and Greg Lemond organized a group ride strictly via social media. We all posted about it, encouraging people from all cycling backgrounds to come along for a chill, no drop ride and crossed our fingers. Would 15 people show up? 20? No one was certain and all we knew was that we’d begin our little jaunt on Market Street at the Oakley store… (more…)

R&R Today
01-LEMOND-2

You’ll have to bear with me today, as I try to rest up a bit before heading into the week. It’s been a long haul, but we made it to Los Angeles and I am fried!

Expect regularly-scheduled posts to commence later this evening. I need some R&R this morning.

Happy Monday!

Rubber Side Up 11
RubberSideUP-11-03

Dylan Buffington from Mash took a bit of a spill during this year’s Red Hook Crit Brooklyn after a racer went down in front of him. Luckily for Dylan, the metal barricades cushioned the blow and his hand took a majority of the damage. He was rushed to the ER and stitched up before being sent home.

This was Dylan’s first ever Red Hook Crit and it left him eager to get back out there again. Racing brakeless track bikes in a criterium-format race is a true testament to bike control, race tactics and straight up luck. Sometimes you have the latter on your side, sometimes you don’t.

Glad you’re back on the bike and already ripping brother. See ya soon!

Seabase is At it Again

“Gran Canaria on the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago, is one of the most diverse and beautiful places to go cycling. It offers spectacular roads and stunning views that put your mind at ease. In January 2015 Patrick Seabase explored the volcanic island in the atlantic ocean on his track bike (ratio 47/17). Preparing himself for an upcoming project – he covered 12000m of altitude throughout 25 hours of freeriding within 6 days.”

Nice one, Patrick!

The Radavist 2015 Calendar: May
RAD_MAY2015_1000

EDIT: Just re-upped the photo to high res, sorry for the initial low res download.

This is the fifth layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Marin’”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

Those SF locals will recognize this coastal road in Marin County with its swooping descent and gigantic switch back. I’m not sure what’s more beautiful, the scenery or the number of people cycling!

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2015 Calendar – May. Please, this photo is for personal use only!
