The Radavist 2015 Calendar: July
RAD_JULY2015-1000px

This is the seventh layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Glacier”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

These mountains are unmistakable. They’re icons, sculpted by ice. Spanning from Canada and into Montana, Glacier National Park is one of the iconic national parks that borders the Tour Divide. Before dropping down into Polebridge for pastries and coffee, I had to stop to soak in this view as my fellow cyclists zoomed past, surfing ribbons of dust and gravel.

YO! MFS Cribz California Edition
manualforspeed_lacribz-titlebig-1680x1344

“There is no denying that the world’s top cyclists are a breed apart, they are competitive thoroughbreds, human wunderkind graced with nearly limitless physical prowess. What they do on a bike, with their seemingly effortless speed and cagey instincts, is a sight to behold. A sight that creates hordes of ravenous fans and colorful motorcades that stretch beyond the horizon, a sight that fuels respectable economies and liberates the oppressed. These demi-gods are responsible for all of it, a great gift and a great burden, a weight that takes considerable effort to support even for those granted such remarkable powers. Even with all of their stamina and endurance, these cycling phenoms need a place where they can recover, hydrate, and watch House of Cards. Superman has his fortress, Batman his cave, and these real life superheros, they have their apartments, condos, and flats.

In this episode of YO! MFS Cribz, Manual for Speed has been granted exclusive and unprecedented access to the Los Angeles area homes of six seasoned pros to catch a glimpse of their decadent SoCal lifestyles…”

Acre Features Ride Housemartin
Ride-House-Martin-44

Acre has a great feature up showcasing how our friends at Ride Housemartin in New Zealand operate. For those unfamiliar Sven and Anka Martin live in Nelson, NZ. When Sven isn’t on the road being one of the most bad-ass photographers in mountain biking and when Anka isn’t out racing in the EWS, they lead a series of small, guided tours through the mountains of New Zealand. I got to experience it first hand with Santa Cruz back in February during the Stigmata launch. If you’re interested in reading about how Ride Housemartin operates, click on over to Acre!

The Radavist 2015 Calendar: June
RAD_JUN2015_1200px

This is the sixth layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

The sixth month of the year is deservingly the most metal calendar image to date and those of you who are Wolves in the Throne Room fans will note its title. Upon scaling the Mountains of Madness, two recent graduates from Miskatonic University found themselves engulfed by a fog, as they fled from a pack of Shoggoths. Old Ones beware, you’re not catching these gravity bullies.
