We’re Sending Some Sun Your Way
LeicaM-138

Please, don’t take this as gloating. Believe it or not, we don’t like 90º weather in February, but at least we figured we could share some of this warmth as we go into the long weekend. This past week has been electrifyingly hot, with almost debilitating temperatures spiking way above normal.

One of the ways we cope with it is by bringing the party up to the Blacktop (aka the Helipad) in Griffith Park at sunset as the cool ocean breeze ripples across the valleys and hills of Los Angeles. This becomes the perfect backdrop for a Golden Saddle Cyclery tradition of taking out-of-towners to “the Club.”

For some more warm vibes, check out a few more photos below.

Tuesday Trail Treat
LeicaM-123

It’s been a while since Kyle, Sean and I have ridden from the early morning til sundown. Particularly because of the shorter winter days. When we saw the temperature was going to break 90º today, we planned a ride out to Dirt Mulholland with our friend Josh who was visiting from Austin.

Unfortunately for photos, the bright and hot mid-day sun results in less-than-ideal lighting but fortunately for photos, that just means you gotta relish the radness. Nothing crazy happened in terms of the riding, but we had fun cashing in our daylight chips on endless dirt…

Check out a few more photos below.

Hope Your Weekend Was This Warm

Man, 85º in February ain’t bad, until it’s 105º in March!

I hope everyone spent time out on their bikes today and not on a couch eating snacks watching football.

the Radavist 2016 Calendar: February
RAD_FEB2016_1000

This is the second layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “Dusted.” This photo was shot in Chile during the Santa Cruz Bicycles Rally Aysen. More coverage from this event is landing on the site this week.

I’m thankful for weather-sealed camera bodies and lenses, not only for water, but for moments like these when you just have to get lower to get the photo, resulting in a cooked corner and a wall of dust.

As soon as I was back from Patagonia, I began catching up on social media, where it was brought to my attention that the NorthEast finally welcomed in winter last week.

I hope all of you are making the best of it and are making some great photos like this one…

Whitney and Bukowski

Photo by Kyle Kelley

Kyle’s got an X-Pan. A Hasselblad-branded camera made by Fuji that takes panoramic images and uses 35mm film. These cameras can create some exceptional photographs, especially when the photo is of such exceptional subjects. Whitney, her 20/20 Cycles Kalakala tourer and a Bukowski mural here in Los Angeles.

We got snow in Los Angeles- at 2,500′ and up, so it’s made for some interesting Instagram photos with this one being my favorite. Enjoy your weekend and party like Nils!
