A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
I first met Damian Riehl in Austin at the 2011 NACCCs and was immediately drawn to his photography. While the Hasselblad 500c/m is his go-to-workhorse camera, he likes to shoot various formats for big events. When I found out he was heading out to the 2012 CMWC in Chicago, I reached out, offering a platform to display a few photos in a Guest Gallery. I had no idea he’d deliver such a rad package!

If this photo looks strange to you, it’s because Crihs is going against the number one rule of track cycling: let the people in front do all the work. Dude, what are you doing!? Whatever got intio Crihs’ head worked for him that day, as he landed on the podium for a few events. See more of Jake’s photos here, at his Flickr.
With everyone finally detoxing from CMWC, it’s great to see the first runs of film photography making it out of the processing facilities. Jake’s photos from Chicago (and the ride to Chicago) are great. If you really want to see a behind the scenes look at the comradery that goes down at events like this, check out his Flickr photos here.
From the velodrome to the streets… CMWC was last weekend in Chicago and while there is more coverage coming to the site shortly, I had to post up this photo Peter from COG magazine took of the classic LeMans race start. I love the energy these starts create. Great photo Pete!
The 2012 CMWCs are upon us and here’s the latest video from the Chicago team that’s putting it together. How sick is that? I wanna see someone one-up Christina riding her cargo bike on rollers. Get it girl!
