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.

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.

It used to be if you wanted to look good in the office, you had to commute with your clothes in a backpack. Over the past few years so-called commuter wear has stepped up its game, allowing you to wear the same clothes you commuted in on around the office all day. Parker Dusseau, a clothing designer in SF believes there’s no compromise between looking good on or off the bike and function. Their latest photoshoot, featuring Chas and Marc showcases their bike-friendly Travel Blazers and Chinos. Their functional clothing doesn’t stop there. I’ve been wearing their merino longsleeve and shortsleeve shirts for the past few months on everything from my cross bike to mountain bike.
An added bonus: brand makes everything in San Francisco.
See more photos below and check out the full holiday collection at Parker Dusseau.

October 10th brings about yet another Ask a Founder event at Mission Workshop. This time, it features Mike Sinyard of Specialized Bicycles.
“The Founders Event was created in effort to pull the curtain back and learn more about cycling brands that we respect. We as an industry tend to focus on the stunning finished parts but not as much on the struggle it takes to get there. For the event we simply turn the cameras on, step back and watch the story unfold. We cover the inspiration behind ideas, the projects that never got off the ground and everything in between.
For our fourth installment of this project we present to you the relatively unknown founder of one of the cycling world’s leading innovative forces. Mike Sinyard of Specialized will now take your questions. Join us Saturday October 10th at 7PM PST to watch Mike live on Bikemag.com. Be part of the event by asking Mike a question via Twitter using “#AskSinyard” as the hashtag. Live audience space is limited, if you can make it to Mission Workshop San Francisco, email [email protected] for a seat.”
