Hearing news like this from the framebuilding community is always a bummer, but at least we can all lend Rob a hand in his time of need:
“As some of you may already know, Rob English crashed while racing at the front of last weekend’s Tour of Aufderheide. He suffered multiple broken bones and other serious injuries and is still in the hospital. His doctors have said that his road to recovery is going to be long.
Many of you know Rob as a top level competitor or as an A-list custom frame builder who has taken top honors in the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. Many of you also know that he is also an all-around great guy.
There has been an outpouring of support and desire to reach out and help. As a self-employed frame builder, it will likely be some time before Rob can wield a torch at English Cycles as he recovers. What we, as the local cycling community and community at large, can do is help lessen the financial impact of this so that he can concentrate on recuperation and rehabilitation.
Donations go directly to Rob and his family.”

… and I already wish I was back in Los Angeles, riding these roads. I really have become enchanted with that city and the people who call it home. Some of my closest friends live there and over the year’s, they’ve shown me what a magical place it really is.
Many thanks to my friends back in LA for showing me a good time. You know who you are!
Riding in Sweden’s Sverigetempot Brevet
Words and photos by Johan Björklund
In 2012 I thought about riding the Sverigetempot for the first time. I had never done it before and so I didn’t know what I was getting into…
You know what? I had never been to a Wolfpack event before last night. I know, I know, I suck… Luckily, it just so happened that I was in Los Angeles and was able to pedal down Sunset Blvd to the Los Angeles Civic Center to watch the 2014 Wolfpack Hustle Civic Center Crit…
Man, I know I get to shoot some pretty balleur rides, but I had a blast documenting the Mavic 125ans bikes… And it brought me back to my favorite city in the world for riding bikes: Los Angeles.
I’ll be reviewing a set of these Ksyrium 125 wheels, for those who have been emailing me, asking what I thought of them.
For now, thanks to Chad and Zach for bringing me to my favorite city, to ride and photograph bikes.
Western Recreation Photos – Week 01: Words and photos by Yonder Journal
THIS IS A SURVEY OF RECREATION IN THE AMERICAN WEST. The primary purpose of this project is to explore, document, and publish a permanent, voluminous, wide-sweeping, and studied record of the State of Recreation in the summer of 2014.
The photos within this essay are by no means recent, but they offer a very intimate look into Portland’s framebuilding culture. I love the old portraits of Ira Ryan and Jordan Hufnagel.
See the full story at Storehouse.
This is the sixth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Light, Mate!”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
I know summer is exploding in the Northern Hemisphere right now, but Down Unda’, in ‘Straya, it’s the middle of winter. We just finished a big ride and I thought I’d celebrate July’s calendar with some proper #lightbro!

Thanks for letting me go on another overnighter ride in the Aussie bush. It’s exactly what I (and my bike) needed. What a perfect 48 hours… oh and happy 4th of July!
For the next 48 hours, I’ll be riding in the outer reaches of civilization deep in the Yarra Ranges with a handful of mates. As per the norm when it comes to these rides, there will be ample documentation upon my return.
This trip will be atypical from previous treks, since it’s winter and the weather can change in the blink of an eye…
See you soon!
