This is a great idea from our friends at Search and State:
“A Search Statement is a proposal for something you want to do. It can be anything, but should involve cycling in some way. It would be great if your idea has a positive impact on others, but it doesn’t necessarily have to. Perhaps you want to ride farther, longer, or somewhere no one has before. Maybe you want to build a cycling community where one doesn’t exist. Perhaps you want to create a photo exhibition, an art installation, a cycling movement, a safety device, an innovative type of bicycle, or a new way to ride one. We’re open. Try us. What’s most important is why it matters to you.”
Take some time and submit your Statement at Search and State!

It’s that time of year again. Sean from Team Dream is throwing his annual #TeamDreamSunsetChasingTeam contest on Instagram. The concept is simple: chase a sunset, shoot a photo and tag it #TeamDreamSunsetChasingTeam. Here’s the rundown:
“Here…We…Go! This rounds Sunset Chasing Photo Contest prizes are SOOO insane (like so insane that these aren’t even all of them because we couldn’t fit anything else in the photo). We have loads great stuff ready for you to win! Some of the grand prizes include bags from @missionworkshop / @acresupply, glasses from @oakleybike, kits from us here @teamdreamteam / @endocustoms & the “ultra grand prize” is a set of Ksyrium SLR wheels (plus shoes) from @maviccycling.
We will be picking a total of 15 winners and 1 Grand Prize winner. You now have 5 days to get out and post your best #TeamDreamSunsetChasingTeam images! Just use the hashtag on your photos to participate. The only rule is that the photo must be new/original and be yours. Winners will be chosen by instagram celebrity guest judges (to be announced on a later date in order to protect their own safety) and will be announced once the contest ends. Images will be judged on concept, composition & overall level of fun (photoshopping in a Bobcat wouldn’t hurt either.
Good Luck everyone. The deadline is this Tuesday at midnight PST..Now go out there and get em’!”
