This is the twelfth layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “the Ladder” Shot with a Canon 1dx and a 24-70 f2.8 in the Ben Lomond National Park, Tasmania.
Ben Lomond national park is renown all over Australia for its skiing. The locals say “if you can ski Ben Lomond, you can ski anywhere” due to its rocky landscape and shallow, often frozen snow. The same can be said about Ben Lomond’s infamous “Jacob’s Ladder” climb. A series of snaking dirt switchbacks ascend to the top of Ben Lomond Mountain at 5,150 ft and resemble many of the iconic European road climbs, but it’s all dirt! If you can climb this road and the climb’s approach through the Tassie bush, you should have no problem tackling any other ride!

For the past two years, Yonder Journal has traveled the globe to investigate and report on bikepacking / ultra-lightweight bicycle touring. They called this project Dead Reckoning. The team at Yonder Journal felt that a project of this magnitude demanded a life outside of the internet, something you could hold in your hands, something with weight, a physical source of inspiration and contemplation, a book of pictures so exquisitely crafted that even a quick glance, a mere flip of the pages, would incite a riot of adventurous inspiration.
Introducing the Dead Reckoning Year(s) Book. A compendium of two years worth of dirt napping, bike pushing, and adventure voguing.
Stats? This is thing is 9″x12″, perfect bound, and 160 pages. It features nearly 200 color photographs and is printed in the USA.
The Year(s) Book is on pre-order sale through December 8th. Head over to their store for the full details.
Support Standing Rock and the Water Protestors in North Dakota with these fundraising bottles!
“As athletes, and cyclists, we know how important hydration is to our every day lives – it nourishes us, cleanses us, and often even encourages us- that’s why we must ride in solidarity with the Water Protectors in North Dakota.
These Mni Wiconi bottles – which means “Water is Life” in Lakota – are a small way for us to help the indigenous people of this land save our environment. All proceeds being donated to the brave men and women who are uniting from all over the world to fight for our clean water at Standing Rock.
In reality it is a fight we should all take part in, to save our water from a predictable contamination and esnure our planet survives by ending dependency on insustainable energy sources. Even if we can’t travel to join our brothers and sisters we can still help them through donation and mindfulness.
The design features the Lakota Thunderbird surrounded by rain water, bringing hope, justice, and clarity to the Water Protectors. Overhead is the Lakota phrase that embodies the struggle – Mni Wiconi.”
In my opinion, these are the only bottle cages that matter and many would agree. Check out the story on King Cage at Gear Patrol!
There’s only one dude I know who could pull off a patch design like this… Head to Ultra Romance’s web shop to swoop!
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.
What a perfect Merckx Mondays post. Team Too Late has a pre-order up for these Endo Customs-made Eddy Merckx scrapbook vests. Head over for more information…
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.
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…)
