Yonder Journal: Trail of Tears Permanent
yonderjournal_totpermanent_radavist-4

Man, the latest from Yonder Journal is amazing. Earlier this year, the gang – sorry, I wasn’t able to make this one – headed to the Southern US to embark on an infamous journey: along the trail of tears.

While civilization has sept and crept in since settlement era, a majority of this landscape is still very much alive as it was in the early 1800′s. It was a dark time in our Nation’s history, yet it served as a fantastic stage for a Brovet.

See more at Yonder Journal as the gang traverses the mountains in North Carolina and Tennessee. Also check out more behind the scenes selects below!

The Road to Interbike with Acre: Sequoia Shred Sess
Hella Lightbro!

The Sequoias. If you’ve ever been to the Redwoods, then you know how humbling of a sensation it is, walking, driving or riding through them. Now, imagine trees of that size, growing at 8,000′ elevation.

On our ride to Interbike with Acre and Mission Workshop, we found ourselves in proximity to Camp Nelson, smack in the midst of the Sequoia Nat’l Forest. Ty had ridden a few trails here before, so he pushed for us to spend the afternoon picking lines in the pine needles.

MTB mileage is nothing to note, but Bear Creek is a great climb!

It was insane. Insanely steep, insanely loose and insanely fun. I don’t think I’ve had that much fun on a MTB in a long, long, time. Until Kyle hurt himself…

On the Road to Interbike in a 1970 VW Bus
The scenary changed and the temperature dropped. Perfect for the air-cooled 1970 VW bus.

This time of year, as warm days are fading, timing is crucial for road trips. As Interbike approached, Mission Workshop / Acre had discussed doing a bit of a photo story with Golden Saddle Cyclery, myself and Sean from Team Dream, who would bring his 1970 VW bus along. We’d shoot instant film from the Impossible Project and document the journey.

Like all trips, things don’t adhere to any schedule, or plan, or route. We knew what we wanted to do and ensured we’d get in at least one ride – more on that later. Since the van was going into the Mission / Acre booth, we had to be in town this morning. After a few hiccups, we made it and most importantly, so did the van with all our stuff!

I’ll have photos from us shredding in the Sequoias shortly, but for now, let’s look at some end of summer car camping photos. Road tripping with three of your friends is the best.

Living the #RadGoldenDream en Route to Interbike
RadGoldenDream-1

For the next few days leading up to Interbike, I’ll be on the road. Kyle and Ty from Golden Saddle, Sean from Team Dream and myself will be trekking out to Vegas via a few choice trail systems. While we’re on the road, we’ll be documenting the shenanigans thanks to Impossible Project‘s instant film and Mission Workshop / Acre‘s kick-ass gear!

If I get ahold of WiFi, I’ll be updating the site, if not, expect everything to resume with Interbike coverage on Tuesday.

Follow us on Instagram.

We’ll be back at it tomorrow, so stay tuned for updates as usual. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want summer to go anywhere.

Japanese Steel: A New Beginning
Tokyo School of Cycle Design-01

I always enjoy seeing articles and photos like this, and I’m sure you feel the same. Kinoko Cycles visited the Tokyo School of Cycle Design and the article looks great:

“During my last trip to Japan I was invited by Shin Ichi Konno of Cherubim Cycles to visit the Tokyo School of Cycle Design where he teaches twice weekly. You would assume with something as common as a bicycle, a object which exists in every village and town across the globe and requires very specific skills to design and manufacture, that colleges teaching cycle design would be common. But this is not the case.”
