Jet Lagged in Barcelona with ENVE
Mattia

Yes! Europe and not just Europe, Barcelona, an incredibly photogenic backdrop to explore by bike. This week I’m visiting the shop of Legor Cicli with ENVE and Crema Cycles. We’ll be doing local rides on dirt and sealed roads, testing out the new Crema Cycles Duo all-road bike. The overlying theme of this trip is framebuilders, bikes and dirt. Lots of dirt!

Yesterday began at the airport, first thing in the morning and ended on the bike. Not a bad way to intro a trip like this and attempt to rid myself of hellish jetlag. Stay tuned for more, but for now check out the Gallery!

the Radavist 2016 Calendar: March
RAD_MAR2016_1000

This is the third layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “Super Bloom.”

This photo was shot in Death Valley during the recent wildflower bloom. Spring explosions like this happen once every 10 years in Death Valley and drastically alter the landscape, scattering blues, purples, whites and yellows across the valley’s often dry and arid basin.

When the Lights Go Out in the City
LEICAM-180

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been playing tour guide here in Los Angeles, taking out-of-towners on various rides, mostly revolving around the Blacktop in Griffith Park at sunset. Why? Because people, the colors of Los Angeles get even better when the lights go out.

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.
