Tallinn Bicycle Week 2014

It’s that time of year! The winter cold has thawed and everyone is out on their bikes…

Tallinn Bicycle Week and Tour d’ÖÖ group rides are activities brought to life by a circle of bicycle aficionados in order to bring different bike lovers together, grow ‘the pack’ of cyclists on the streets of Estonian cities and honor the bicycle as one of the greatest thought and action inspiring mechanisms ever invented. TBW is celebrating the cycling culture as a whole.”

Search and State #NYCtoGSC Party in Los Angeles at Golden Saddle Cyclery
SAS_GSC

If there was anyway I could be there, I would be! Search and State‘s NYC to LA trip looks like it’s been completely insane. Rider Joseph Holway has ridden for the past 20, some-odd days from the SAS factory in New York to Los Angeles to deliver a jersey. It’s a wild concept that has my interest piqued.

Los Angeles, head to GSC on the 1st of July and welcome Joseph, LA style. Get that man a drink and take him to Smoggy!

The 2014 Melburn Roobaix
... and as he should be. The Roobaix is all about fun. It's not a competition.

There are enough competitive races, or rides that look like races in the world and the Melburn Roobaix is not one of those events. Instead, Andy and Melody White from FYXO aim to bring people together, from all “rolls of life” to take a leisurely spin around Melbourne’s many cobbled back-alleys and bike paths. I.e. off the beaten bike path…

With over 2,000 registrants this year, planning was essential. Rider registration the day of was streamlined, there were now two route options, with over 40 variations for completion and yes, plenty of prizes, all of which were drawn from a lottery. It didn’t matter how fast or slow you completed your manifest, as long as you did so, you were eligible for prizes.

So… what is the Melburn Roobaix all about? I don’t know how to answer that, other than it’s all about the participants. There’s no overwhelming demographic, not one specific type of bike reined supreme. Rather, a broad sampling of the Melbourne cycling community attends each year. Commuters, ex-racers, current racers, weekend bike path warriors, enthusiasts, cool kids, kinda cool kids, first timers, party goers, costumed freaks, costumed geeks and yes, even people on Melbourne’s rentable city bikes.

I have to say, after spending over six hours in the rain, following meandering packs of people wearing soaking wet costumes, looking for cobbled alleys, I’m convinced this is truly one of the most down to Earth events in the world. Everyone was more than stoked to ride around in the pissing rain, into headwinds and without a care in the world. The people are what make it so much fun and this Gallery is dedicated to just that: the people of the 2014 Melburn Roobaix.

Many, many, many thanks to the people of Melbourne (particularly the patient drivers), the crew from Brisbane / Queensland I rolled with, the volunteers, vendors and FYXO for making this such an enjoyable event!

Now if I can just figure out why all “Roubaix-themed” events wreak havoc on my camera gear!

See You at the Melburn Roobaix

Tomorrow I’m heading out for another dose of Australia to document the Melburn Roobaix for FYXO. I know there are a bunch of events happening while I’m there, like this party and other rides, so if you’re planning on being in Melbourne, I’ll see ya there.

I’ll have plenty of products with me to hand out, so don’t be shy (of course you won’t be, you’re Australian)…

Adam Craig’s Limited-Edition Giant TCX SLR SS

This is why Adam Craig will probably win SSCXWC in Kentucky this year and no, it’s not the bike. It’s his training! You see that Four Roses? Dude means business. Although being in the bourbon mecca might put a damper on those roosts!
