… This reminds me, I need coffee!
Every Wednesday, a group of coffee enthusiasts wake up with the sun, pack their camping coffee setups on their bikes and meet in a small park on the LA river. There’s no requisite, just make coffee, chat and partake in the occasional donut.
Errin Vasquez organizes this gathering, which I first found out about on Instagram and this week, I got to hang out with this growing meeting at the Sunnynook River Park. Along with capturing the general vibes, I followed Jesse Carmody‘s brewing technique and shot photos of Errin’s Box Dog Bikes Pelican randonneur bike.
Mission Workshop at 541 Valencia is open!
They’ve cut through the back wall of their warehouse on Rondel alley and expanded to Valencia street, creating what can only be referred to as the Mission Workshop Industrial Complex in the heart of San Francisco.
Join the gang for #FreeCoffeeFriday provided by Bicycle Coffee starting 10AM, Nov. 7th.
It’s getting cold out yonder and that means one thing: time to drink warm liquids – even more. My mug-consumption goes through the roof these months with all my hot toddy and coffee intake, so why not mix it up a bit with the new Cable Knit Mugs from Firefly Bicycels? Only $35 at the Firefly Webshop! Warm beverage holders don’t have to cost an arm and a leg!
Made in the USA from high-grade polymer, these Kinoko Cycles mugs will take a beating. See more at Kinoko. I love the throwback insignia.
Interbike. The necessary evil of the industry and the culmination of the year’s energy for me. 48 hours ago and we were in the Sequoias, now, we’re in the towering landscapes of Las Vegas, navigating the halls of the convention, seeing new and interesting products and longtime friends.
In an attempt to make my Interbike coverage as easy to digest as possible, I’ll be doing things a little different. Each day, I’ll upload around 80 photos, with the company’s name in the captions. If you have any questions, ask below and I’ll answer.
Keep in mind, these are products I like and do not necessarily represent everything to see at the show. If you’ve seen something elsewhere that’s worth sharing, holler at me on Twitter, Instagram (@JohnProlly) or in the comments!
Come see David and the Mobile Cycle Club, Tillie at Mellow Johnny’s today for coffee and affogato. He’ll be set up all day, so swing through and say hello. I’ll be there with my camera(s) too.
When it comes to a touring bike, the randonneur bag or Wald basket will reign supreme for front-end portage, but not every bike has rack mounts. In the case of a classic road bike, or MTB, strap on handlebar bags are the simplest solution to carrying extra cargo around town.
There are countless options, ranging from cordura, to cotton, but for those looking for something a little classier, check out the Tanner Goods Porter Handlebar Bag. I’ve been keen on trying one out since the line was first launched and since using mine for around a month, I’m loving it…

These look good!
