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!

Back to back beautiful slideshows from the crew at Vital MTB. The French still do Enduro best, from the way they govern their races – riders have to ride the same bike throughout the duration of the race and changes or repairs cause a time deduction -, to the feral enormity of their terrain the set the chocolate croissant standard of Enduro racing. You don’t have to take my word for it, just pop on over to Vital MTB and check out their race coverage. SO GOOD. Day 1 & Day 2.
This morning, after no sleep and a long day of traveling, I landed at Heathrow with the sunrise. In fact, I’m pretty sure it was the sun, peeking through the neighbor’s window, hitting me in the face that kept me from getting an iota of sleep.
I hopped on the Express train and made my way to the hotel, before taking a stroll with the PEdAL ED team around the neighborhood.
Holding onto consciousness, in an almost sleepwalking state, we swung through a few shops, all of which I’d like to spend more time combing through the details and doing proper Shop Visits at, but in the interest of time, I’ll have to go with these random details.
Kinoko was amazing. One of the nicest shops I’ve been in and the Rapha Cycle Club was quite the experience… I’m here with Brooks England, for their Eroica event and our days are pretty packed, but I’ll do my best to document our journey.
