We all know this feeling. Switchback after switchback, we keep pushing upward to the summit. It’s one of the greatest sensations any cyclist can endure…

This one’s too good to not repost. Thanks for the heads up Tracko!

This print from Yonder Journal celebrates and congratulates Wilderness. Here’s an excerpt:
“Congratulations Wilderness. Congratulations Wilderness for being just what you are, not that you need our gratitude. You would be better off without us anyway, the conscious, self-righteous/self-loathing, needy us. You would even be better off without the fawning, in awe, perpetually blissed-out us, the enlightened us, the elevated us. You would just be better off without us, without our tents, our non-motorized vehicles, our horses, our campfire rings, and our buried feces, you would still be you, an even better, cleaner, you, you would be Wilderness just as you were meant to be, absent the blight of consciousness, the acne of sentience.”
“Like rice, the bicycle is deeply ingrained in China’s culture. Once a sign of backwardness, the “people’s vehicle” is now enjoying a hip revival. 11 unique tyre tracks went into creating the Forbidden City – one of which belongs to the legendary Flying Pigeon.”

In the spirit of the Tour, Ty at the Foot Down made a run of El Diablo prints and shirts.
“Didi Senft has been a regular fixture on the slopes of the greatest climbs of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia since 1993. More commonly known as El Diablo he appears dressed as the devil running and jumping alongside the riders and bringing an extra spark of excitement to any stage. Everyone loves Didi!”
Score one at the Foot Down.
Everyone loves track bikes and posters. So why not combine the two? David Flores has done extensive work for Austin-based Division 1, including that giant Merckx mural on the side of their building.
For the second chapter of their collaborations, he illustrated three track bikes in prints. A Cinelli, a LOOK and a Moser. Check out the other two below and scoop up these prints at Division 1.
Tyler at Firefly was kind enough to send over some photos from last weekend’s MERCIBOS exhibition by KCE at Firefly. I can’t get over how creative these prints are, especially the ceramic snail design.
