A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a jump. Rubber side up!
We believe the outdoors should be respected. Please, pack it in and pack it out. Leave it better, even. Remember, we’re all ambassadors for cycling, so be polite on the road and the trails and observe the leave no trace principles.
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 – it’s the inherent nature of living things to play. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike, riding singletrack on a ‘cross bike and shredding trails on a mountain bike. Take the time to get rad and tell the tale.

When I first saw this bike, two things came to mind: Cannondale’s track bikes from the 90’s and Makino’s NJS bikes. This thing is a rocket with tight clearances and just the right amount of nuances you’d expect from a custom build. AJ from Muirandessi has a great eye and his client Gavin knew exactly what he wanted: a track bike that he could race and also spin around Portland on.
I know I don’t say this often, but keep that rubber side DOWN, dude. That is one nice machine!
Saturday, October 3rd and Sunday, October 4th I’ll be in Portland attending the Hopworks Handmade Bike and Beer Festival. If you’re looking for something to do that weekend, roll through. Got a Portland-made bicycle frame, be sure to bring it along.
See ya there and if you can’t make it, I’ll be covering it on Instagram @TheRadavist.
The fourth annual PDW Omnium took place on May 30, 2015 at the beautiful Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland. Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of track racing, eating burgers, hot dogs and ice cream floats. Big ups to Clint Culpepper and to all the racers for another successful year of the event.
Don’t have any 4th plans, but would like to avoid drunken crowds of people searching for fireworks? Maybe you’d prefer to be on a bike ride instead? Live in Portland? Well, if you haven’t heard of the PDX Invitational, this one’s for you.
