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.
This is the seventh layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “Sunset Chasing.” Shot with a Leica M240 and a 35mm Summicron in Santa Barbara, California.
Summer months bring the heat, forcing many cyclists to ride either early in the morning or late. In Southern California, I find myself taking on the latter, if only for the last fleeting moments of daylight… Yesterday in Santa Barbara with Stinner Frameworks was one of those days!
NEW: There’s also a mobile image uploaded for anyone wanting a mobile phone background each month. July’s image is from Japan and was one of my favorites from the Asuke Gourmet Century coverage. Click here to download July’s Mobile Wallpaper.

Apologies for the lack of June wallpaper. I left the InDesign file in Los Angeles and had no way of getting it in Japan.
Beginning from a cross country bike ride in 1976 to celebrate the U.S. Bicentennial, Adventure Cycling has dedicated its existence to those wishing to explore the cycle touring routes throughout the United States. To commemorate over 40 years of documenting, publishing and celebrating cycle tourism, the ACA is throwing a party in Montana. Dubbed the Montana Bicycle Celebration, riders from all over the country are flocking to Missoula on July 15th through the 17th. It’s this celebration that prompted a rather large group of people to fly into Banff, Alberta and ride to Missoula along the Great Divide Route.
Hopefully we’ll have photos from this trip up on the site next month, thanks to Andrew The Maker‘s nifty rolltop handlebar camera bag. If you’re going to the ACA Montana Bicycle Celebration, be sure to give this group of wayward riders a high five and a beer!
You might’ve been drawn in by the cast of characters, a who’s who of MTB loosest DH riders – Ratboy, the Spirit of Enduro, Loose Dog Lewis – just to name a few. Or maybe you were drawn in by the promise of thick mudded berms being sliced and diced like a stoned Edward Scissorhands set upon a fresh batch of brownies. Or you’re the type who just clicks on everything with your own patented brand of devil-may-care/I’m-so-bored-at-my-job ennui. Whatever the case you’re here. And each of the above are valid reasons, each one is more than enough to want you to poke that sleeping triangle. (more…)
