Team Dream’s Biggest Collection Yet!

Dream ér Stage Race Leaders Jersey

We all know Team Dream makes some great gear but this season’s drop has really raised the bar for the brand. With new jerseys, bibs, shirts, socks and accessories, there’s something for everyone, at any pricepoint. My personal favorites are the Thin Stripe and Dots Jerseys as well as the Thin Stripe Socks and the Chubby Bobcat Pocket T.

See more at Team Dream and check out the full collection below, including some of Jesse Carmody‘s rad photos!

River City Bicycles Turns 20!
RIVERCITY-1

The local bike shop has undergone a bit of stress over the past decade. Online sales from steep discount sites have crippled many shops, forcing them to close, so anytime a LBS stays open for 20 years, it’s worth noting. While River City Bicycles is far from my own local shop, they’ve always treated me like one of their own when I’m in Portland.

Congrats to the team and the community for two decades in the industry. If you’ve never been to RCB and you find yourself in Portland, it’s well worth the visit!

Oh and great freaking cap guys!

The Radavist Presents: Monster Track 2015

Monster Track is arguably the most intense and highly regarded annual street race in the world. Throughout its history, racers have been inspired to travel from all over the globe to compete for the title. In it’s 16 year history, no out of town racer has come out with a first place finish.

It can be difficult for someone to appreciate Monster Track and understand what makes it such a special race for its participants without actually being there. This year, Monster Track is told through the experience of its past champions, native citizens of a city that allows for a race of this caliber, and its visitors.

The Radavist’s #SxSW ‘Cross Ride in Austin Tomorrow
Andre_Wraith_Paycheck-31-1335x889@2x

This morning we had a solid group of riders show up for an easy spin to start the day off. Tomorrow, let’s do the same but on dirt.

Let’s meet up at Flat Track Coffee on Cesar Chavez at 9am (please be on time – we’ll leave at 9:15) for a super chill trail ride. The forecast is calling for rain, but these trails drain quick, so show up regardless. Bring a few tubes, because it’s thorny. Don’t feel pressured to kit up, shorts and a t-shirt will be fine.

Bring some cash for coffee and we’ll finish up at a bar for some food and a beer or two.

The Radavist’s #SxSW Road Ride in Austin Tomorrow
Screen Shot 2015-03-18 at 1.49.16 PM

Pardon the short notice. I didn’t want to make this a huge event, but I know some of you are in Austin for SxSW and you might have brought your road or cross bikes.

Let’s meet up at Flat Track Coffee at 9am for a casual, slow ride into some of Austin’s scenic hills just west of downtown. Anticipate around 15 miles and 2,000′ of climbing, so plan accordingly. This is a no-drop, no jock ride. Let’s spin those legs and sweat out that booze.

Also, If anyone wants to do a MTB or a cross ride, mention it in the comments and we’ll make it happen.
