the 2017 All City Championship

The All City Championship returns for its twelfth year and one of their sponsors, All-City Cycles – no relation to the ACC – is throwing in an extra incentive:

“To further our goals of helping to make the cycle community as inclusive and welcoming as possible, for our sponsorship this year, we have agreed to pay the entry fee for all women / trans / femme riders. So if you’re thinking you’d like to join in, please do, the good times are on us.”

Head to Bike Jerks for more information.

Well, that’s it for this year’s Sean and Tim at the Tour. It was a wild ride for everyone involved and these videos provided entertainment for those of us who weren’t able to go to the Tour.

Seabase in Morocco

I feel like Patrick Seabase is always a few steps ahead of me in terms of travel and cycling destinations. I’ve wanted to go to Morocco for so long and now, this video just ups the ante.

Rubber to the Road: The Gateway Green

Here’s the newest video project from River City Bicycles, dubbed “Rubber to the Road,” where the shop looks at the riding surrounding the Portland area. First up (on this site anyway) is the new Gateway Green trail network:

“Gateway Green is an enormous undertaking that’s been in the works for almost twelve years now, and this Saturday, June 24th, it’s officially opening to the public. The amount of work that went into making this a reality- both physically and politically is impressive, to say the least, but saying the finished product reflects it is an understatement. Special thanks to the Northwest Trail Alliance, Portland Parks and Recreation, and all the volunteers who put countless hours into this project to make it a reality. Gateway Green is the Portland area’s first, extensive, 25-acre mountain bike-specific park which lies just on the other side of I-205 from Rocky Butte and just a few blocks away from the Gateway Transit Center. It’s incredibly accessible by either the 205 bike path, or the Blue, Green and Red MAX lines, and is only seven miles away from River City. For more information on the park, be sure to visit www.gatewaygreenpdx.org, and we hope to see you out there soon!”

More On those FBM Ride Endpoint Hunter / Gatherer Frames

“I love all kinds of bikes and different types of riding, but I am never quite sure where any of them will take me. Our latest adventure on wheels at FBM, a bad ass touring frame and fork call the Hunter / Gatherer, was designed in collaboration with our friends at Ride Endpoint and will be built in the FBM Machine Shop. Creating the Hunter / Gatherer was a combined effort of some great people, stoked on bikes, looking to have some fun! We hope you will join us…” — Steve Crandall

I think that’s something we can all get behind. Check out the latest on the Hunter / Gatherer frames at FBM’s blog and yes, you can still pre-order one of these killer bikes at FBM.

Bicycle Quarterly on Rivendell

“When Bridgestone USA closed in 1994, many mourned the loss of what they saw as the last bastion of sensible design in the quickly changing world of bicycles. They rejoiced when later that year, Bridgestone’s marketing manager Grant Petersen started Rivendell Bicycle Works. The new company’s first project were three hand-built frames, the Road, Mountain and All-Rounder.”
