Speaking of night riding, last year, Brian Vernor linked up with Cooper Ray to shoot some photos for BELL and this was a left-over photo. Check out more at Brian Vernor’s Making Blog!

I saw this portrait of Dan and Britlee on the Rapha Survey and reached out to Jeremy Dunn of the Athletic for a higher-res file. Not only did he send it over, but he wrote a little blurb about them as well. What a nice guy!

March 13th – 16th brings Monster Track to NYC for the 15th year. See all the information at the event’s Facebook page. Greg Ulgalde killed it again!
Alleycat footage from Boda Boda will always get me pumped to ride. Any bike. So good!
Alfred was one of the first bike messengers I saw in action in NYC that made me realize some people were born to ride a track bike. He’s fast and flows two steps ahead of traffic in any situation. Put him in the mix to race Monster Track and he’ll surprise you.
Check out Alfred’s cap at the Winged Store!
This video for Gothamist and Speck is pretty funny, but what happens when your phone goes into a puddle?
Oh and sup Mikey?!
I love Boda Boda videos and this one’s real chill.

I just love photos of New York City, especially when it’s of this group of gentlemen, shot by my friend Wilis at Milk Money. These two smiling faces (smile Cooper!) work at Clementine Courier, a courier-owned and operated messenger service. See more photos at Milk Money and if you work at an office in NYC, holler at your boss about working with Clementine!
It’s been over a year since Deux North took us on a journey. Here’s their latest:
“Deux North, a cycling brand started by brothers James and Dylan Nord, is out to tell a different kind of story. Using primarily short documentary films these stories aren’t just about racing or riding your bike; they are about the passion behind the obsession, the freedom felt while riding, and the things we learn about ourselves and others in the saddle. It’s the kind of story you have to go out and create, or in their words, hunt.
This is the trailer for Hunt 3, a third in a series of ten trips around the world that involve beautiful roads, fast bikes, surprising people, and a natural setting that’s quite different from the brand’s home in New York City. This particular trip took a group of 5 riders, or hunters, to upstate New York. Setting up camp outside of the small town of Boonville, they split time documenting the local lumberjack competition and hundreds of miles of gorgeous riding.”
I gotta say, I’m pretty stoked on seeing more from Boonville!
