A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
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. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
Dylan Buffington from Mash took a bit of a spill during this year’s Red Hook Crit Brooklyn after a racer went down in front of him. Luckily for Dylan, the metal barricades cushioned the blow and his hand took a majority of the damage. He was rushed to the ER and stitched up before being sent home.
This was Dylan’s first ever Red Hook Crit and it left him eager to get back out there again. Racing brakeless track bikes in a criterium-format race is a true testament to bike control, race tactics and straight up luck. Sometimes you have the latter on your side, sometimes you don’t.
Glad you’re back on the bike and already ripping brother. See ya soon!
Last Saturday was the 2015 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn and racers from all over traveled to NYC to take a stab at victory, or at least finishing in the main group. Photographer Derek Yarra met up with a few racers for portraits, prior to them taking off for NYC. Here are two, of Erica and Marc, see a few more at Derek’s Flickr.
The Radavist’s Red Hook Crit coverage is on the way this week!
People have a lot of misconceptions about the frame building process and even the builders themselves, which is why I value a good interview. Above Category conducted one such interview with Aaron Barchek of Mosaic Cycles on their blog and it’s worth the read.
If you’d like to meet Aaron yourself, he will be visiting Above Category in early May. There will be a group ride on the 9th of May at 8.15am. More information to follow on AC in ‘The Broomwagon’ and their Facebook.
Mash has been working on a few new projects and part of that is documenting track bikes being thrashed on the streets of SF. This shot of Dylan on California street is amazing. The lean, the composition and those tracks. If you’ve ever ridden down this particular strip of road in SF, you know how rad this is… Keep ripping, Dylan.
Face it, professional cyclists are celebrities, at least according to Manual for Speed. How do they live? What do they eat? How do they recover? … and what’s in their trash? All this and more will be revealed upon entering the vortex that is Yo! MFS Cribz Episode 01.
Back during cross nats, the guys from SRAM were in Austin, filming a video spot for their new GX mountain group. I pointed them to a bunch of my favorite trails to ride, with the caveat that it’s all pretty unnavigable. They took off, scouring the Barton Creek Greenbelt, Pace Bend and other trails for a ripping good time and here’s the final product. Locals will recognize a lot in here (like the top of Quarry) and it’s rad to see my favorite spots gets shredded.
Morgan, let’s go skid leaves, baby…
Also, as a bonus, read on below for some words by Morgan Meredith and photos by Adrin Marcoux from the trip.
Yonder Journal’s Dead Reckoning looks to be their biggest clusterfuck to date and I mean that in a good way. Tidal surges, emergency heli lifts, male modeling, it had it all. Do yourself a favor and check out Dead Reckoning Day 05 and Day 06 now at Yonder Journal.
