The Radavist 2014 Calendar: August
RAD_AUGUST2014-800

This is the eighth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Hot Summer”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

In Texas, we can ride two times during the day: early morning and late, late afternoon. The sun just cooks us the rest of the day, so each night, we take to the hills and watch the sun set on Central Texas.

Navigating the Lost in the French Maritime Alps – Ty Hathaway
Words by John Watson photos by Ty Hathaway

The French Maritime Alps are riddled with the remnants of man’s conflict of bygone eras. With the most recent being the Italian invasion of France in WWII. The Battle of France took Italian troops over these very mountains as they lay claim to Benito Mussolini’s demands for a ‘surplus population’. Or, in short, simply expanding the Italian empire.

As it goes with war, many souls are lost, leaving nothing but the roads, paths and man’s ruin…

… of how much #LASucksForCycling. Head over to Team Dream for a few more 35mm jammers.

I miss that town all the time. Actually, I just miss the West Coast, period. Luckily, this weekend, Lauren and I are leaving for a proper vacation. We’ve got a week to drive from Portland to Los Angeles (which isn’t nearly enough time) and I’ll be shooting vacation photos the whole way.

Hopefully, if you have never been down HWY 1, the next week will make you want to do so.

How’s everyone’s summer going?

A Ride Up the 2 Revealed that Newcomb’s Is Closed on Tuesdays
Crossie Freestyle!

The last time I was in Los Angeles, I had one thing on my mind: doing some road riding in the Angeles National Forest. Usually, I’m in LA on my cross bike and we will spend our afternoons poaching trails, escaping to the dirt or bombing fire roads. All of which are wayyy more fun than a road ride, ATMO, anyway.

Still, there’s nothing like a somber ride up the 2 to Newcomb’s Ranch for a burger, a beer and some fries, only to rip back down to town, sated.

Unfortunately for the group that morning, Newcomb’s was closed and I think I was the only one who really ate anything at all that morning. Check out some selects from a Recent Roll. Man, that was a long time coming!

We totaled 80 miles and around 8,000′ and damn, Oinksters was good!

Tools of the trade:
Yashica T4
Kodak Portra 400

Trackside ’85 at the Berlin Six Day Race – Staffan Jofjell
Words by Staffan Weigel, photos by Staffan Jofjell

Although it’s far from the spartan life of East Berlin, living in the west part of town is not always easy. The instability in world politics is constantly reminding the citizens of how vulnerable their city is. West Berliners stoically maintain a spirit of normality in their isolation. Their celebrations and manifestations of life before the wall serve as rituals that keep the absurdity of the surrounded city at bay…

The Radavist Redback Kits are Shipping This Week

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, I wanted to make sure I had enough stem caps and stickers to put inside each order before the kits went out. They’ll be going out this week. Those who are emailing me, asking about a pre-order. It’ll go up Friday. I wanted to get this first run shipped out.

I will be doing women’s jerseys and would consider doing cycling shorts (alternative for women to wearing men’s bibs), if there is enough of an interest. So, if you’re a woman and would prefer shorts, over men’s bibs, let me know so I can add a line item.

Thanks for your patience! Hugs and kisses.

Jake Ricker’s Agustín Melgar Olympic Velodrome Photos
MexCityVelo-13

This very velodrome is where Merckx set the only Hour Record that ever mattered. The Agustín Melgar Olympic Velodrome was constructed in 1968 for the Mexico City Summer Olympics. During the CMWC, Jake and the rest of the gringos got to rip around this iconic track…
