Mission Workshop is going to have a holiday collection showcase at Golden Saddle Cyclery, beginning this Friday with the opening party. This looks like it’ll be fun. So much fun that I’m flying out for this party and soak in some SoCal Cross!
BEER BEER BEER bourbon
These go fast, so you know the drill. This stock will be the last re-up of the year, so swoop at Golden Saddle Cyclery!
I’ve been working with Sean from Team Dream on a few products that we’ll be releasing over the next few months. From yet another run of socks, an ENDO vest, a jersey and yes, these caps.
Swoop up a TDBTGSCPiNP cap here!
I’m stoked on how they came out!
Sean from Team Dream has one of the sickest vans and he knows how to live!
“I always wondered what a bike rack on top of my VW van would look like, so my friend James McClung created this reference image for me. The boys at Golden Saddle Cyclery and I liked the drawing so much we decided it would be best to make it a t-shirt for Team Dream & GSC!”
Pick up one of these awesome tees at Golden Saddle Cyclery! My LA homies are killing it!
You’ve gotta see more photos here.

Sorry to be re-blogging so much of Fyxo’s content these days but he keeps posting photos of some of my best friends, including this lovely lady. Adria is arguably the brains behind Trackosaurus Rex. She’s helped Kyle out with various things over the years, including designing the Golden Saddle Cyclery kits. While I wouldn’t say she has a style, she definitely has a touch and that spills over into all aspects of her life.
Fyxo shot some great photos of Adria and her Landshark cruiser. Check them out here and if you would like to hire Adria for design work, holler here.

California is the place to be and even some Portland scalawags like team Speedvagen know that. Ok, so they’re not scalawags, but they sure know how to have fun! Check out the amazing photos by Jeff Curtes over at the Speedbloggen!
This is one of my favorite people on the planet. He’s inspired me to remember just one thing about cycling: have fun (or at least look rad). Yonder Journal has just posted an interview with Ty, right after he completed the 2013 Tour Divide.
“I was always tired to a certain degree because any day that you ride a mountain bike one hundred and forty miles you’re going to be tired. And if you wake up and do it again, and again, for twenty-three days in a row, you’re going to be tired all the time. So basically I was tired all the time. I feel great now though.”
It’s a hell of a read, so check it out at Yonder Journal!
Yep! They’re back… but for how long? Swoop here!
Man. I wish I could be in Cali for this event. The Speedvagen Family will be in SF and LA. There’s so much going on that it’s best if you just head to the Speedbloggen to see the details!
LA has a bad rep for cycling. Just the other day I got in a debate with someone at a bar because they literally said “LA sucks for cycling”. I laughed, thinking they were referring to the hashtag (right?), only to find a solid 10 minute debate followed. Basically, any city is what you make of it. It’s your attitude and approach that changes your outlook.
I went through so much film during my last stay in Los Angeles and that’s probably because we rode every single day. Some of the rides I had done before, but having Andy along brought a new perspective. We rode mostly cross bikes and even the “road rides” had a fair amount of dirt thrown in.
Here’s a collection of a few rides, in a playful Photoset. See more in the Gallery!
