This is the third layout of the Radavist 2017 Calendar, entitled “Babylon Rider” Shot with a Leica M240 and a 35mm f2 Summicron lens in the Hollywood Hills, California

Some say the climb to the top in Hollywood is almost impossible. Cyclists beg to differ…

Search and State’s New CS-1 Fleece Pullover

Made from 100% cotton Japanese Loop Terry and featuring a locking Riri zipper, these new Search and State pullovers are far from your average sweatshirt. I will admit, posting a $145 sweatshirt feels weird, but knowing Search and State’s apparel, it’s gonna be worth it. Head to SAS for more information.

Gearing up for Life on the Bike: Camera and Tech – Ryan Wilson

Packing for an open-ended bike tour through remote areas of developing countries can be a bit intimidating. You don’t want to get there and realize you’re missing something crucial that you’re going to have trouble finding locally, but you don’t want to overpack and feel required to haul a bunch of stuff that you don’t really need.

With that in mind, I wanted to start a series of posts discussing my personal gear setup and some of the things I’ve learned in my first 7 months of living on the bike in South America. First up I’ll dive into my electronics setup and touch on the question I get asked most frequently… “what camera are you using?” (more…)

Max’s New Rock Lobster S&S Frame

At a certain point, even I become inundated with so many balleur rides rolling around, but sometimes a project pops up that catches my eye. Max’s new Rock Lobster S&S road bike is one of those moments. I can’t wait to see this one built up. It definitely needs some rasta components!

Jandd for Mash: Bicycle Travel Bag

When I used to live in New York, a common bicycle travel hack I’d use were these portfolio cases from Chinatown. They were awesome for flying with a road, track or ‘cross bike but required you to take almost your entire bike apart. Small bike travel bags are great. You can sometimes sneak them on board for less than the bicycle check fee and you don’t have to lug around a big case or box through airports. Using what they’ve learned over the past few years of traveling with bikes around the globe, Mash contact San Diego’s Jandd to build a bicycle travel bag based on their design input. These bags will fit a road, track or ‘cross bike. Perhaps even an S&S tourer, but I’ve yet to confirm that. They’re in stock now at Mash, so if your interest is piqued, like mine is, head over there to check them out.

TGIF GSC Rides

Every Friday, Golden Saddle Cyclery leads a group ride leaving from Intelligentsia Coffee in Silver Lake that heads into the surrounding hills. Sometimes it’s dirty, sometimes it’s road but it always ends at Mission Workshop LA for Bicycle Coffee LA‘s Free Coffee Friday. If by the end of this jaunt, you’re not fully caffeinated, then you’d better check your pulse. For this most recent TGIF GSC ride, our group rolled into a hillside park called Cherry Canyon and rode a mix of fire road climbs and singletrack descents before heading back. If you’d like to join in on the fun. Meet up at Intelli for a 7am ride each Friday. The shop will announce the route and terrain Thursday on their Instagram.

Check out a few more sunny, blue-skied photos below!

The Pale Mountains Road

Here’s one from PedalED’s latest video Journal entry:

“The mountains are my life, I live here, my house is here and my love too. The roads that surround my house they unravel into the woods until they reach the high silver-colored peaks and limestone summits that form a stone ring around the village. I know all of those peaks, I have been up there hundreds of times, I know all the paths, I know all the small lakes created from ice, I know every stone and I know how hard and beautiful it is to get there. When I look at those peaks my mind blows up into thousands of different memories related to them.”
