Navigating the Lost in the French Maritime Alps – Ty Hathaway
Words by John Watson photos by Ty Hathaway
The French Maritime Alps are riddled with the remnants of man’s conflict of bygone eras. With the most recent being the Italian invasion of France in WWII. The Battle of France took Italian troops over these very mountains as they lay claim to Benito Mussolini’s demands for a ‘surplus population’. Or, in short, simply expanding the Italian empire.
As it goes with war, many souls are lost, leaving nothing but the roads, paths and man’s ruin…
Tyler from SRAM, Lyle from Mission Workshop / Acre, Ty from Golden Saddle and Ross Measures were in the French Alps with Adrian Marcoux for a few days of straight up ripping (and getting lost).
Over at Bike Mag, they’ve put together an extensive story of this trip, in a four-day series. Head over to read Day 1 of Following Cards and click through to Day 2 – 4 when you’re done.
There’s “lightweight” and then there’s LIGHTWEIGHT. I’ve held this jacket in my mortal hands and it is amazing…
“We got our hands on some special cuts of Polartec’s NeoShell® fabric in colors not typically found in the Mission Workshop line and made some limited editions of our classic Orion jacket. The Orion provides complete waterproof protection in a lightweight and packable format, and is made with 96 g/m2 Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. The relaxed cycling fit combined with durable stretch fabrics enables maximum movement. Available for the first time in colors that will be noticed by everyone around you.”
Swoop up at Mission Workshop. Seriously, this is a worthy investment…

Before the Oregon Outback, I was in SF for a few hours and got to see some of the new products Mission Workshop will be rolling out over the next few months. My favorite however are these black multicam Cobra Buckle Cargo Packs. Gear heads will go nuts over the AustriAlpin hardware…

I love all the new Multicam designs coming from Mission Workshop and while the newest collaboration with Bicycle Store Paris might be too much for some people, I would use one in a heart beat. This limited edition Sanction is only available via the Bicycle Store Paris’ store and online at Bicycle Store.
I’ve seen this in person and it’s awesome. In fact, I wish I had one with me this week for our ride. Here’s the scoop from MW:
“The Ultralight Orion provides complete waterproof protection in a lightweight and packable format. The relaxed cycling fit combined with durable stretch fabrics enables maximum movement.
The Orion is a fully-taped waterproof-breathable jacket designed for extreme wet conditions. Made with 96 g/m2 Polartec Neoshell® fabric. This highly breathable, waterproof fabric is engineered to react to changes in body temperature and activity levels, allowing more moisture and heat to escape as the intensity level increases. As a result, the Orion is the perfect waterproof jacket for an exceptionally wide range of environments and temperatures.
Features include: Pit zip underarm ventilation, external access chest pocket, internal ported media pocket, rear stow pocket, hand warmer pockets, and removable hood.
Jacket Weight: 370 grams (310 grams without hood)
Fabric Weight: 96 g/m2
Made in Vancouver, Canada.”
I wear this combination when I go camping, or on my MTB and around town on errands. The Mission Workshop Stahl shorts and District merino henley are back in stock now.
