To party tomorrow night, then to ride some mountain bikes with the dudes from Golden Saddle, Mission Workshop and Team Dream Team. Hopefully, I’ll get to see something like this in person.
Great photo Sean! See the rest of the Full 36 here!
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!

How does Tracko find this stuff? Chev’s photos of the Gent Six Day Race in t’Kuipke, Belgium are so good, they needed to be re-posted here. See the full 35mm black and white set here!

Even if it’s only for a brief encounter. Brenton was in town, shooting F1 and I bumped into him at my local coffee shop, Flat Track Coffee. Thanks for the portrait man!

Looking at these two photos really make me miss the seasons and the Pacific Northwest, especially Portland. It was around this time last year that I rode in Mt. Hood National Forest with Ben from Argonaut cycles. Those are some of my favorite photos from last year and here, Brenton nails the same mood. Nice shots man!

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!
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!

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