When in London

On the way back home from Italy, I swung through London to catch up with my friends at Oakley who have just opened their Oakley In Residence space. After a quick tour of the locale and a brief meet and greet with a few athletes, Chas from MASH and I convinced multi-Olympic gold medalist Victoria Pendleton to step outside and take a #HardstyleWednesday photo.

My mind is blown… As always, there’s more to come!

Mash SF: Chas on Battery Street

All I can think watching this (and after navigating the ever-increasing congested streets of SF last week) is… suckers! Chas steers no-handed with ease through a sea of sedentary car commuters who’d be better off riding bikes in the great city of SF. Nice one Mash!

Oakley: Chas Christiansen – One Obsession

Yes, Chas!

“What started off as a way to pay the rent in San Francisco, soon turned into a new way of life for Chas Christiansen. Messenger cycling opened up a world of opportunity and introduced Chas to an international community of like-minded people. Taking his bike everywhere that he goes, travelling the globe in search of new people, cultures and experiences.”

Nice one, Oakley.

Mash SF: Chas Christiansen

I can take a few minutes from hosting guests to post this. Chas is on fire in this new edit from Mash. Now that’s endurance training…

Must see!

Chas and His Cinelli Rider Collection Cap

One of the true hustlers in the urban cycling scene is Chas from TCB Courier. Also a Mash / Cinelli rider, Chas was approached by the Italian brand to design a cycling cap for their Rider Collection Cap lineup. Check out this interview as Chas talks about what got him into bikes and the stigma associated with cycling caps!

I’ve got one and it’s one of the more unique caps out these days. You can pick one up at Cinelli’s Winged Store!

Live to Shred

Sometimes, good coffee is more than enough motivation to do a quick ride through Golden Gate Park in SF. If you don’t have time for the San Bruno loop, there’s a quicker way. The first time I made it out to Trouble Coffee was with Chas, back in May when I was in town for the ATOC. This time, the sandwich board spoke its words of wisdom with one simple phrase: Live to Shred. We rolled back through the park, bumped into Marc and swung by the De Young museum, one of my all-time favorite HdM projects.

I can’t say I shredded much riding home, filled with toast and coffee but it did make for some excellent photos of the #lightbro through GGP… See more in the gallery!

Trouble Coffee Run via San Bruno

San Francisco has many great coffee shops but one in particular has become sort of a tradition in the past few times I’ve visited the city. Trouble Coffee is by no means a local’s secret, but it’s worth the jaunt over if you have the time. Especially if you can meander a bit, say, up San Bruno.

Chas took me on a great 28 mile loop around SF one of the last days I was in town. We started in the Mission, headed south up San Bruno, took a dead-end but scenic road and then headed west to Trouble coffee before splitting GGP on the way home. All in all, it was a great little ride and it goes to show that you really can get in a lot of climbing (2,000′) on an easy ride like this.

Check out the route on my Strava and maybe give it a try yourself. See more shots from the road (and dirt) in the Gallery!
