Search and State: Olive Drab Field Shorts

I’m kind of a shorts hoarder. Each year, as the temperatures warm up so that the option for wearing jeans dissipates, I’m on the hunt for a few shorts options. Search and State’s newest apparel fits right into my wardrobe with these new OD green Field Shorts. Made in NYC and backed by SAS’ relentless pursuit of perfection, these shorts are in stock now at Search and State. Oh and they totally come in black too, don’t fret!

A Sleeping Sequoia Serpent

In the Sequoia National Forest, Highway 198 makes a series of tight twists and turns before topping out around 8,000′. From above, the landscape is delightful.

Rubber to the Road: The Gateway Green

Here’s the newest video project from River City Bicycles, dubbed “Rubber to the Road,” where the shop looks at the riding surrounding the Portland area. First up (on this site anyway) is the new Gateway Green trail network:

“Gateway Green is an enormous undertaking that’s been in the works for almost twelve years now, and this Saturday, June 24th, it’s officially opening to the public. The amount of work that went into making this a reality- both physically and politically is impressive, to say the least, but saying the finished product reflects it is an understatement. Special thanks to the Northwest Trail Alliance, Portland Parks and Recreation, and all the volunteers who put countless hours into this project to make it a reality. Gateway Green is the Portland area’s first, extensive, 25-acre mountain bike-specific park which lies just on the other side of I-205 from Rocky Butte and just a few blocks away from the Gateway Transit Center. It’s incredibly accessible by either the 205 bike path, or the Blue, Green and Red MAX lines, and is only seven miles away from River City. For more information on the park, be sure to visit www.gatewaygreenpdx.org, and we hope to see you out there soon!”

More On those FBM Ride Endpoint Hunter / Gatherer Frames

“I love all kinds of bikes and different types of riding, but I am never quite sure where any of them will take me. Our latest adventure on wheels at FBM, a bad ass touring frame and fork call the Hunter / Gatherer, was designed in collaboration with our friends at Ride Endpoint and will be built in the FBM Machine Shop. Creating the Hunter / Gatherer was a combined effort of some great people, stoked on bikes, looking to have some fun! We hope you will join us…” — Steve Crandall

I think that’s something we can all get behind. Check out the latest on the Hunter / Gatherer frames at FBM’s blog and yes, you can still pre-order one of these killer bikes at FBM.
