Have you ever felt like you’re not as Macho as you could be? Been awhile since you flexed your bicep and shredded your shirt sleeve? Feeling like you could get bigger, leaner, and tanner? Well if there is one person in the world that has never experienced this type of physical let down its Benedict “Poppi” @ultraromance Wheeler. But don’t fret, Poppi can you help you get the flex you have always wanted,  the flex he has always had.

In Club Macho episode 3. Benny’s Builder’s Bar Workout. Poppi gets down to business and gives you a manual for how to get cut. Head over to Yonder Journal and flex your eyes on the protein fueled routine that will put you behind the wheel of a convertible sports car in no time.

Note: Before you begin this program, bend your arm and attempt to bring your index finger to your shoulder. If you can achieve this feat of useless mobility, your bicep is under developed, atrophied, and is a macro indication that your entire body suffers similar clinical afflictions.

Rubber Side Up 13

Summer is in full swing and that means lots of early morning and late evening riding, unless of course you enjoy getting sunburnt and dehydrated. Sniping photos like this are a lot of fun, especially when it’s of a ripping whip.

A Desert Reset in Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley

A reset, not a reprogram, was needed. A friend reached out and offered a weekend of desert exploration and chakra realignment. Joshua Tree. A park named after the plant yucca brevifolia which received its common name by Mormon settlers who traversed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. These tall, twisted giants were reminiscent of the Biblical character Joshua as he reached to heaven in prayer.

Fuck Yeah Olive Drab

I once made a comment about having too many olive drab bikes, to which a good friend replied “better than too many purple bikes…” Touché.

Tools of the trade:
Leica M7
Zeiss 35mm f2
Portra 400

Film, like a road can make for many great metaphors. Sometimes though, a photo itself resonates meaning to not only the creator but the audience. I just got back a bunch of film from my weekend getaway to Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley, but this is one of my favorites…

Don’t worry, if you don’t like this one, there are more to come.

Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Portra 400

I figured with all the emails I’m receiving regarding the status on everything from bottles to kits, I’ll just make a post, beginning with a bit of a overall site status.

We lost our office last week. Bummer. The rent was hiked up way too high and we were essentially priced out. Things happen. Luckily, we were moved to a new space in the same complex. Yay. Unfortunately, we’re still having to move everything which believe it or not takes some time. It’s only been a year and yet it feels like we’ve just settled in. This week will be relatively slow on the site while we scramble for normalcy.

That said, all bottle orders shipped last Wednesday, so you should be receiving them shortly. ENDO customs finished the kits and they’re landing in Austin any day now. We’ll get your orders packed up and shipped as soon as possible. There’s also a surprise coming later this week, so squirrel away a couple dollars.

Thanks for all the support and thanks for understanding. We’re still a small operation here on the site, so when things move out of equilibrium, it takes us a bit to keep everything in order. If you have any comments, questions or other needs, drop them below.

Yonder Journal and Ultra Romance Take You to Club Macho

I had no idea this was even a thing! Benedict, aka Ultra Romance has a feature on Yonder Journal entitled “Club Macho” where he lays down the law on what it takes to be a Bike Hobo in contemporary society. Episode 01 takes you to New Zealand, somewhere that might not be super obtainable for you Northern Hemispherites, yet Episode 02 takes place in Shredona, Arizona…

I’ll take full creative direction on that bottle of Rosé in Bene’s Iris King Cage tho’…
