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.
Bikepacking Oregon’s Big Country
Photos and words by Gabe Tiller
Third time’s the charm, right? Taking our combined knowledge from two previous bikepacking trips deep into Southeastern Oregon’s Big Country we had linked up the best features of this stark, vast landscape. We would start by traversing the until-recently occupied Malheur Wildlife Refuge, head up and over Steens Mountain, across the dry Alvord playa, and up into the the unknown Trout Creek Mountains before briefly slipping into Nevada and returning to our car by way of Hart Mountain eight days later. Logistically it’s an intimidating route, so we scheduled short days, therapeutic hot spring soaks, and ample time for sage bush whacking and accidental mud wallowing. (more…)
I love watching videos that focus more on the vibe of an event than the production. Not to say this is a low-quality video, but it’s more focused on capturing the feel of the 2016 UCI World Cup series than anything else. Nicely done!
When Ryan Wilson @RMDub told me that he was quitting his job to go bikepacking around South America for the unforeseeable future, I was stoked. When he mentioned wanting to do Reportage for the Radavist while he was down there, I couldn’t resist but to get on board. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been helping him put together this 44 Bikes OD green 27.5+ bikepacking rig and Kris just posted completed photos of the frameset. There’s more to come but for now, head to the 44 Bikes Flickr to see more!
Melissa Munro is one half of the Trans-Provence. Along with her husband, Ash, she helps plan the world’s most famous enduro races but it doesn’t end there. When the race is over, she leads guided tours down the same trails and tracks…
Weekends this time of year require special planning. As the temperatures rise, the National and local parks will be littered with people, making escapism difficult and privacy impossible. Luckily for us in Southern California, there are enough spots within a couple hours, both by bike and by car, where you can partake in a little R&R, without being overly crowded. (more…)
Komorebi (木漏れ日) is a Japanese word that roughly translates to “sunlight shining through the leaves of trees.”
Jocelyn, aka “Jocey” Gaudi found herself in Los Angeles this past weekend to lead the latest ladies-only Golden Saddle Sunday Social on bikepacking. Over the years, Jocelyn has undertaken extensive bikepacking trips and has learned a lot about not only the ins and outs of backcountry exploration, but how to lead groups of women, of various experience levels along the way. Her leadership skills landed her on the Komorebi Bicycling Team, a group of women who explore the wilderness by bike, organize trips and inspire others to venture into the woods.
