A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a jump. Rubber side up!
We believe the outdoors should be respected. Please, pack it in and pack it out. Leave it better, even. Remember, we’re all ambassadors for cycling, so be polite on the road and the trails and observe the leave no trace principles.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally – it’s the inherent nature of living things to play. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike, riding singletrack on a ‘cross bike and shredding trails on a mountain bike. Take the time to get rad and tell the tale.

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’!”
Show us your best ALOHA Vibes (open to interpretation) using the hashtag #S1ALOHA by Friday, July 10th at Midnight. Winners will be selected, contacted individually, and celebrated for their commitment to the ALOHA lifestyle.

Women’s Bike Mechanic Scholarship

Last week at Sea Otter, Juliana announced their new Roubion shred sled and now they want to give one away:
“The new Juliana Roubion is designed to handle anything an all mountain adventure may throw at you. Designed by the carbon fiber experts at Santa Cruz, the Roubion also sports 150mm travel, with all the pedaling benefits of the Virtual Pivot Point (VPP™) system. You could say it’s got all the brawn of the Bronson, in the spirit of Juliana. It’s certainly proven itself already as Anka Martin’s Trans-Provence winning race bike.
Offered in three sizes, the Roubion will make it’s way to the public in June, but is exclusively available now to the “Show Us Your Roubion” Contest Winner.”
See more details at Juliana and another flier below!
