… hanging with my mate Bazza the Blue Tongue and keeping him from getting squished by a Ute. Even with relatively wet weather over the past few days, there’s some great content on the way, so hang tight.

Ride High Crewneck
RideHigh

Back in the 1960’s, the Schwinn bicycle company used to make informative leaflets about bicycle care and maintenance. This image in particular came from an illustration about caring for your tires. The kid is unchanged except the balloons he was holding were replaced them with a joint and some smoke. He’s got the same grip and the same face. It’s almost as if this is what the illustration should have looked like all along… Scoop one up at Ride High Crewneck.

F’ck Yeah Olive Drab: Search and State Long Sleeve Merino Jersey
long-sleeve-merino-jersey-surplus-green_front

I will not OD from OD. Search and State’s new long sleeve merino jerseys are here in time for winter rides. Merino makes for an incredibly versatile material. You can wear it for multiple rides without having to wash it, it’ll dry fast in a rain shower and if properly cared for, will last for years. These jerseys are made in New York City and come in three colors. You already know which one I favor, though! Head to Search and State to check them out.

Machines for Freedom and Cadence
MFF_Cadence_03

I love when two brands come together for a project like this. Cadence is known for their performance cycling kits, for men. Machines for Freedom is known for their exceptional fit and quality kits, for women. So when Cadence wanted to make a kit for women, they contacted Machines for Freedom to supply the fit and performance of their kits with a Dustin Klein-illustrated Cadence design. The result is one of my favorite collaborations this year.

See more photos below and ordering at Cadence. (more…)

Blackburn Rangers Katie & Laura in Wyoming’s Red Desert

Here’s the latest from the Blackburn Rangers program:

“Wyoming’s Red Desert contains an expansive and lonely area known as the Great Basin. Although the rolling and hills and spartan features make for relatively easy travel, the area has been long been a formidable obstacle due to it’s lack of water and fierce winds. Laura and Katie face the challenges, anxieties and . . . joys, of crossing the Great Basin during their bike trip along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Trail.”

Check out their journals, stories and photos of their entire trip at Blackburn!
