Terry continues his “chasing” series in 4k with Kyle EmeryPeck in SF on his BMX.
Curtis is the best and these series from MW are always a lot of fun… Here’s the scoop!
“Join us on October 22nd for an evening with Curtis Inglis of Retrotec Cycles. Hear about his 25 years building bikes, SSWC08, restoring British cars, and everything in between. We’ll kick things off with a ride* leaving the shop at 12:30 pm and return to beers and tacos starting around 5:30 pm, with Curtis taking the stage at 6:00 pm.
*The ride: It’s a cyclocross ride. Bring a cyclocross bike and extra tubes (a road bike won’t cut it). There will be rocks and singletrack with the route sometimes erring on the mountain bike side of the spectrum. We’ll be riding in the east bay. Bring some cash for a BART ticket or meet at Rockridge station at 1:00 pm. Not to be missed. Here’s the route.”
RSVP for the event so Mission Workshop has an estimate for attendance.
One of my favorite pieces from Mission Workshop just got the olive drab makeover. The Sansom is now in stock, in three colors just in time for fall.
If you’re not going to Interbike and live in SF or LA, make sure you swing through the Mission Workshop stores for the Carhartt WIP and Pelago parties. Los Angeles’ party is Thursday and San Francisco’s is Friday. Check out the details below. (more…)
While making their 10 year video, the guys at Mash always ran into friends on the road or had visitors come in from out of town. Here’s a fun video showcasing some of their talent.
Here’s Matt Shapiro’s section from the Mash 10th anniversary DVD. Head to the Mash Vimeo to watch more.

Fallen Angel Island is a Bay Area gem tucked away in a hard to get to corner of northern bay just of the Tiburon shore. In fact, it’s not hard to get to but getting one the seven official camp spots is way harder than just jumping on the ferry to get there.
Fallen Angel Island is a stealth campers paradise but with a locust like ranger infested entrance and exit point with the ferry, it’s difficult, almost impossible to enter the island unnoticed and not being asked for a permit when you first enter the dock. Our friend Nick from Pedal Inn had booked the best site on the island about 6 months in advance so we didn’t have to act like we weren’t going to glamp the shit out of campsite 4 with our first time SF visitor from The Warhead Courier Copenhagen chapter – The legendary Simon Busk.

San Francisco is an ideal city to ride a bike, both for pleasure and work. This documentary interviews the city’s bike messengers from 1987 who by the looks of it, ride for both reasons!
