Long-time friend and contributer to PiNP, Kevin Sparrow has a great gallery from the CMWC 2013 up at Vocativ. Head over to check them out! That one of Kym is so rad. It looks like everyone had an incredible time in Lausanne!
Side note: Kevin is really putting that Fuji X-Pro 1 to use…
Here’s some more coverage from the CMWC 2013 in Lausanne. Keep sending these over!
Here’s the first video I’ve seen come from the 2013 CMWC in Lausanne. Hopefully there’s more of the actual event (and the lake jump) coming. If you’ve got something, send it over!

The 2013 CMWC in Lausanne appears to be one of the most picturesque and grueling competitions to date. There isn’t a whole lot of coverage up on the net just yet, but the news that Austin Horse won the CMWC has been circulating through social media. While more photos turn up, check out the Flickr group and Vocativ where Kevin Sparrow is contributing photos.
Without New York City, I wouldn’t be who I am today and quite possibly, this site wouldn’t even exist. The people here are like family and while I may be detached from their day to day lives, I still always roll through for a quick visit when I’m in town. Lauren and I arrived late Sunday, so yesterday was our first day in town.
I swung by a few spots in Brooklyn after my friend Harry and I took a morning spin around Central Park. Later, day turned into night and I turned to some of my old digs to meet up with some old friends. Beer, bros and bikes. Just like the Brooklyn I left three years ago.
Most of these photos are quick shots, or portraits but all came from the Sony RX100… Check out some narrated photos in the Gallery!
The CMWC makes its way to Lausanne this year and Brooks England is showing their support the best way they know how: prizes and by releasing a commemorative saddle package. This year, they teamed up with PEdAL:ED to make the package even more special.
“Our CMWC Collector Sets have been limited to 300 pieces, and will be available by the time our winners are standing on the podium in Lausanne from selected Brooks Dealers of Excellence worldwide.”
Check out the the saddle here and the shoes here.

The UCHOF still needs your help to build the largest collection of urban cycling artifacts:
“The Urban Cycling Hall Of Fame serves to spotlight the history and rich culture of cycling in the city. To date we have had hundreds of nominations for potential inductees, the window for this years nominations is closing quick. There will also be a physical Hall Of Fame that will be unveiled at Interbike and we are putting a call out to the community at large for submissions. These items can either be donated or put on loan, we are trying to build the larger collection of Urban Cycling Memorabilia in the world.
Some awesome items have been collected so far, we have Lucas Brunelle’s entire spoke card collection (which is massive). We also have artwork from Greg Ugalde who’s fine work has graced nearly every major Alley Cat in NYC for the last decade including Monster Track. Brad from Urban Velo donated the first Ghost Bike Sign ever made. A wide variety of other items have been donated and we have Chrome’s RV out on the road doing Collection Sessions in major cities.
We are looking for items that tell the story in every city, from bicycle activism, to races and everything in between. The Hall Of Fame is for everyone, and we want to make sure everyone is represented.
If folks have anything they are interesting in submitting for consideration it can be done by emailing your submissions here or posting them on Instagram and tagging them with @UrbanCyclingHOF and the hashtag #uchof. We need to communities support in order to ensure that nothing is left out and the collection continues to grow over the years.
Ride safe, keep the rubber side down.”

The All-City cycles team did a great job at the Seattle NACCCs. Racing for a #partybrand ain’t easy but this group of fine young men and women gave it their all. Christina Peck won the event, not just 1st place women but 1st place overall. Check out some more portraits at the All-City Blog.
Tomorrow the UCHOF will be in Brooklyn at Red Lantern Bicycles collecting messenger and urban cycling memorabilia from the 1980’s through early 2000’s. Spoke cards, photos, manifests, old messenger bags, jerseys, whatever!
