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.
Track bike crits have become all the rage at local city events. These high-speed, high-tension races are enjoyed by all and offer up a taste of what it’s like to not only race in a road criterium, but also track racing. For the 2013 All City Championship, Jeff put on a track crit, to replace his normal match sprints. 50 or so racers entered, over a hundred were there to spectate and it was a great time. I haven’t had that much fun at a bike event in a while!
It’s the summer of the track bike criterium and with the Red Hook Crit Barcelona approaching, it’s perfect timing to share some photos from Darren Haggar. Check out more photos from the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard here!
I don’t know about you, but I love looking at photos from the Red Hook Crit races from what I would consider photographers who are “new” to documenting cycling. Some of the best editorial pieces in cycling’s history were written by fresh eyes. Ever read Buzzati’s coverage of the 1949 Tour of Italy?
Two years ago at the Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn, I met Kathryn Friedman, a photographer who happened to ride bikes in NYC and after this year’s Navy Yard crit, she emailed me some photos. I figured I’d let the dust settle a bit from one of the most bloody Red Hook Crit events ever, prior to posting…
