The 2013 PiNP Calendar: December
PINP_DECEMBER2013

This is the twelfth layout of the 2013 PiNP Calendar, entitled “The Constant Climb”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

We’ve all read the metaphors eluding to the inherent connection of the bicycle and life’s struggles. You’ll find none of that here. This is the last month of the 2013 PiNP Calendar and I think this photo best represents the goal of the site, without even stating anything. Next year, I’ll be making a rather large change and I hope you’ll stick around for the ride!

Milk Money: Clementine Courier Photos

Photos by Wilis Johnson

I just love photos of New York City, especially when it’s of this group of gentlemen, shot by my friend Wilis at Milk Money. These two smiling faces (smile Cooper!) work at Clementine Courier, a courier-owned and operated messenger service. See more photos at Milk Money and if you work at an office in NYC, holler at your boss about working with Clementine!

#LASucksForCycling
As did Andy. But hey, LA sucks for cycling...

LA has a bad rep for cycling. Just the other day I got in a debate with someone at a bar because they literally said “LA sucks for cycling”. I laughed, thinking they were referring to the hashtag (right?), only to find a solid 10 minute debate followed. Basically, any city is what you make of it. It’s your attitude and approach that changes your outlook.

I went through so much film during my last stay in Los Angeles and that’s probably because we rode every single day. Some of the rides I had done before, but having Andy along brought a new perspective. We rode mostly cross bikes and even the “road rides” had a fair amount of dirt thrown in.

Here’s a collection of a few rides, in a playful Photoset. See more in the Gallery!

Recent Roll: Ride Til Death

Hopefully, “til death” is a ways away for you but here’s a friendly reminder to get out this weekend and ride!

Zion
Strawfoot and Mudfoot

So there we were, planning our drive to Las Vegas for Interbike when Andy throws out the idea “mates, let’s go to the Grand Canyon”, like it’s on the way or something. Personally, I’d rather spend a day or two riding in LA than on the road, so I schemed with Kyle on how to convince the Aussie that there are perfectly fine parks not as far out of the way.

Solution: Zion National Park. We’d drive straight through Vegas and head two hours east. Get there in time to swim and then go on a hike before camping that night. Simple enough. So we drove and landed in Zion with two hours of sunlight remaining. Our agenda: Angel’s Landing.

I had one roll of film left.
