I had to share this:
“She-Devils PGH is a camp-tastic, genre-defying caper, about an all-female bicycle gang that cruise the streets of PIttsburgh, regulating the safety of their fellow female riders.
This short film begins following a typical day-in-the-life of the group, but takes a strange turn when the ladies witness a rogue car weaving along the road. They soon discover the car is inhabited by alien lifeforms and must band together to stop an impending alien attack.
Help support us in getting this film made through our Kickstarter campaign.”

I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Lauren and I that Jacob took a few weeks back in Austin. He really captured that magical moment of riding around town with your lady.
Oh and that #LightBro!

Developing a women’s bib short isn’t easy. As the team at Ten Speed Hero point out, “This is not a sock. This is not designed to fit all.” Female bibs made right. That’s what TSH was going for. 8mm chamois and a special cut for women, they’re designed to fit women and women only.
Pick up a pair at Ten Speed Hero. Might I add that I love their product shots?

I am very stoked on the Women’s 100 event that Rapha organized. Here’s the break-down on this successful event:
“Sunday 7th July was a big day in road cycling: the Tour was in the Pyrenees where Team Sky’s Christopher Froome was defending the yellow jersey for the first time. Simultaneously, thousands of women cyclists were riding their own ‘big loop’, participating in something called the Women’s 100. Rapha’s idea was to encourage as many female riders as possible to go out and bag 100 kilometres on the same day as the Etape du Tour, where a merry band of women cyclists, some new to the sport and some experienced, would ride the 130km from Annecy to Mt. Semnoz.
It was a roaring success and a great day for riders worldwide. We’d like to congratulate all the people involved, particularly those who had never achieved that distance before and the people who organized the rides, chapeau. And our message now is a simple one: keep on riding.

Reports from rides across North America can be found on the Rapha blog here.”

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.

I really admire what Jeff is doing over at All-City. In short: it’s true grassroots support. His sponsored riders get to test out products and provide PR&D before the final run gets made. Take this All-City Thunderdome prototype Kyle from Tracko shot photos of. Head over to his Flickr for more!
San Francisco is out of control and not in a good way. Bike theft is at an all time high as the city continues to cope with a massive drug problem. Basically, your bike’s not safe unless it’s under your ass, being pedaled. Natalia had her race bag, shoes and this Igleheart singlespeed MTB “secured” within her car as it was parked in Noe Valley. Within minutes, her windows were smashed out and her bike was gone.
The next morning, Rai from Mission Workshop was riding past the BART station on 16th when he spotted it being pedaled by some random dude. He put out a call and had some friends go steal it back from some unsuspecting schmo who had bought it from the crackhead that stole it.
Now it’s safe and sound in Natalia’s possession, who races it for Chica Sexy in the Bay Area mountain bike circuits. It’s not everyday you see some Boston-area steel in SF, so I had to get some photos of it…
