Romance and randonneuring go hand in hand atop the mountains ranges outside Santa Cruz.
The two boys of wander are at the Tour this year and nestled inside each day’s Fabergé egg are a slew of great photos. I don’t know how you plan on spending your morning, but picking up with Stage 10 isn’t a bad distraction… Follow Manual for Speed for another 13 stages!
I love it when Rapha does small projects like this. Especially when they’re made either in the UK or in the case of sunglasses, Italy. Mazzucchelli 1849 and Carl Zeiss Vision have created sunglasses for the luxury cycling brand and you know what? They look damn good. Check out more details below and see the full collection at Rapha.

When I first saw Gabe’s photos from this ride, It looked like an amazing route and after seeing Spencer’s photos from the same-ish trip, I’m aching to get out onto this system. The Idaho Hot Springs Mountain Bike Route is one of the latest series of maps from Adventure Cycling. It’s a challenging course with plenty of rewards, but at a cost…
See Spencer’s excellent documentation at his Flickr!
The gang took to high Sierra in their latest excursion, which coincidentally still had snow at altitude. Snow and rain. Did I mention it’s still cold up in those parts? Day 01 seems like a cake walk compared to what they’ll experience later on in the trip, so head over to Yonder to read all about it, while their bikes are still in one piece…
Scotland seems other-worldly to me and Sam Needham’s photos in the newest Mission Workshop Field Test series capture that bleak, yet serene, almost alien landscape. Head over to Mission Worskhop to check out the full report.

The Chris King Gourmet Century brings the wonderful world of food together with bikes, in a whole new way. Recently, the event landed itself in Bend for a day of MTB riding and gorging on delicious food, as prepared by Chris King chef, Chris Diminno. Having been on the receiving end of Chris’ cooking many times before, I’d say the attendees got their share of gourmet snacks as well as plenty of Bend dirt.
Check out a few more photos below and see the full report at Chris King’s Blog.
