Recent Roll: Beat the Clock Cycling New Years Day Alley Cross

A few months back, some friends decided to start up a cycling club called Beat the Clock Cycling. It was started by Jon, the owner of Beat the Clock Messengers. The idea was to create a club that would throw local events, with one thing in mind: fun. Group rides, parties, goof-off races and everything in between.

So far, it’s pretty low-key but on New Years Day, a couple dozen people got together for a little impromptu Alley Cross race on the East Side of Austin. I slept in and missed the actual race, but took my Hasselblad out for a quick roll of film at the finish. Check it out in the Gallery!

Recent Roll: Hawaiin #Naturevibes

Over the past few weeks, I hadn’t had much time to get out and shoot with the Hasselblad, so when we went to Hawaii to see Lauren’s parents for the Holidays, I made sure to bring it. Like the digital Gallery, there are no bikes here, just #naturvibes. Enjoy!

Heal Up Woody
Woody2

Woody, co-owner of Golden Saddle Cyclery, National track champion, actual US Olympic team mechanic and just all around good dude was recently hurt while mountain biking in Sedona, Arizona.

This post is dedicated to putting a smile on your local shop mechanic’s face. So make sure you tip! It doesn’t even have to be money, the gift of a cupcake, a beer, a coffee, or even a bottle of booze will make even the surliest of mechanics smile. I don’t want to ignite a Reservoir Dogs debate, I just want to let you know that they appreciate it!

In the meantime, let’s send Woody some good wishes. He’s all broken. Read up more at GSC.

Miss ya buddy.

Wilis’ Nagasawa

I love shooting 3200 Delta during the day. The grain just adds to the subject. But what I don’t like is when I forget to take the exposed rolls out of my bag before going through the airport’s xray. Whoops. Unfortunately, this was the only photo that survived and it’s a shame because this is a Beautiful Bicycle. Wilis’ Nagasawa built up quite nicely.

Damian Riehl: Bicycle Parts Study
ZippHub


Photo by Damian Riehl

Wiping your bike down after every ride and refusing to lock it up may keep it in pristine condition but will it have character? Or a soul? Prolly not. Well used components and frames seem to sprout a personality with the patina from daily use and Damian Riehl has captured that with a few photos. This one in particular is my favorite, a 150mm shot (with an extension tube) from his Hasselblad of a Zipp hub.

See the rest here.

Enjoy the Ride

It’s the weekend, I’ll be busy covering the Philly Bike Expo, so don’t expect any updates. Instead, head out and get on the road. I wish I could ride on the 1 every day.

Pit Stop
Geekhouse_01

There’s nothing better than drinking from the Earth after a mean Cat 2 climb in 90+ degree weather. Last weekend, a big group of us did the Geyserville loop and after the initial descent, there was a water trough filled with ice cold spring water. I took my Hasselblad out of the videographer’s car and snapped a few shots of my Geekhouse resting on this oasis.
