This Wednesday, the guys from Limberlost are doing an old fashioned slideshow from their Idaho trip at Velo Cult in Portland. If you can’t make that, you can always turn off the lights, crack a beer and flip through Gabe’s gallery here on the Radavist, but that won’t be nearly as fun!
Jeremy and Julie from the Athletic have been working on a storefront over the past few weeks and it’s finally ready to open. This weekend is the official grand opening party for Portland’s The Athletic, so if you’re around, don’t miss out!
This one’s a ways off, but don’t miss this year’s Supermarket Street Sweep, one of the largest food drive alleycats!
One of the most metal alleycats ever is returning from the crypt this year in Sweden. The Svart Katt is coming… and if you’re able to make it, do so. In the past, this race has been insane.
While this is a gallery showcasing the 2014 Cyclocross Scuffle in Elgin, Texas, it’s also a tale of what I believe is one of the best cross courses of the season thus far. Let me preface this by saying most courses in the Austin area are jokingly called “grass crits.” That means, a lot of straight ways, usually 4 – 6, which gives a lot of riders who might not have bike control the upper hand over those who aren’t in prime fitness coming off road season.
As someone who doesn’t race road, but rides a lot of trails on his cross bike, I hate these courses. Even with recent weight loss, I still huff and puff on all the straight aways and tear apart the technical “features.” Meanwhile, it’s the opposite for the fellas who raced road all season and didn’t touch their cross bike all summer…
I don’t know why I didn’t hear about this sooner, but the 2014 Texas Custom Bicycle Show is this Saturday evening. I’d go, but I have a wedding! So if you’re looking for something to do this Saturday, head on over.
See more information at the Texas Custom Bicycle Show Facebook.
This Thursday, House Industries is having an exhibition of their new Velo Font at the Rapha Cycle Club in New York City. I wish I could make it out and see this collection in person, it looks really great.

Free Fun at Urbocross
Photos and words by Gideon Tsang
Cycling is usually fun, often not free and occasionally funny.
Racing a criterium is not free, usually fun and funny only when an armadillo crosses the road during the race. (True story and a problem isolated to racing in Texas.)
A deep tissue massage is not free or fun but funny as fuck when your Kiwi masseuse tells you farting stories. (Also a true story).
Bike camping is alarmingly fun and almost free. Insert naked cliff jumping and/or mushrooms for funny…
Urbocross is a free and fun four week cyclocross series on the urban trails of Austin, TX thrown by Beat the Clock Cycling Club and CycleEast bike shop. The series ended last week straddling the end of our road racing season and the beginning cross season.
