Ride Along: Christopher Lee Profiles Brean Shea
Ride Along: Christopher Lee Profiles Brean Shea

What I’ve realized over time is that I end up with a lot of bike portraits of riders in my film rolls. This sparked an idea: a “ride along” interview series. We’ll start this off with Chris Lee, in NYC, where he interviews Brean Shea, a bike messenger and track cyclist.

Chris Lee at Monster Track XV
Guest Gallery: Chris Lee at Monster Track XV

Monster Track. The world’s most infamous, dangerous and in my opinion, most significant alleycat. In the 15 years it’s been thrown in New York City, it never ceases to surprise its contenders. There are only a few rules, the most important being two words: NO BRAKES.

Typically, there’s a weeding down process, at the hands of multiple manifests. Everyone starts with one, but only a select few make it to true completion by filling up to three. This year, mother nature smiled on the event, delivering somewhat favorable conditions (when compared to previous years being riddled with rain and snow). At the end of the event, the winners of Monster Track XV were Cooper Ray and Hannah Todd.

On the scene at the event and working the Williamsburg Bridge checkpoint was Chris Lee, who provided a few photos from the event. Check them out in the Gallery!

Boda Boda NYC: The Rookie Race

To avoid your bank accounts being drained by the queues of NAHBS builders, I’ll start dropping in normal content these next few days…

The Rookie Race is the “warm up” to Monster Track. So once again Boda Boda took to the streets to cover another fast-paced alleycat in NYC but this one’s got an unexpected ending.

Remember, in Boda Boda videos, #neverreadthecomments

REload Bags: Monster Track 15 Prize Bag
Monster_Track-15-RELOAD

Monster Track is this weekend in NYC and that means there will be a prize bag up for grabs. Not just any prize bag either. Philly’s REload Bags have been sponsoring the event for ten years and each year, their designs just keep getting better and better.

Rather than a messenger bag, Roland went with a Flight Pack. My personal favorite bag in REload’s line.

Now the question: who’s gonna win this?
