Cadence and Central Part One

I’m really digging this collaboration:

“In February of 2015 Pro skaters Chico Brenes, Rob Gonzales, and Steve Nesser were accompanied by Cadence Founder Dustin Klein and Brand ambassador Fergus Tanaka. Creating a unique group with different and a parallel background.

Tour De Nica was a chance for all to celebrate the culture and atmosphere of Nicaragua where Chico was born and Central is based out of. Days where spent Riding bikes between city and skating the abundance of parks Nica has to offer.
Culture Cross over at its finest.”

See the collaboration at Cadence.

Death in the Valley – Team AWOL

“Let’s ride into the middle of the desert on our bikes.”

It was plain and simple. This was the brief that convinced a few friends to dive into Death Valley head first. We planned the trip in three weeks, the drive took 7 hours, and all of a sudden our feet were planted on the dirt of the Inyo Mountain Range that would lead us into Death Valley. We were set for an adventure but what we found was an epic one.

On long rides, moments and memories start to blend into each other, making it hard to differentiate this mountain from the next, that turn from this bend. As part of the Team AWOL spirit, there is a responsibility to tell a story. Whether that be with photos or reports, every rider will explain the pain of a climb a little differently than the next. This is something that is taken to heart especially when riding with a group. In this report, we are including everyone’s voice as a way to adjust the method of storytelling. We find this to be essential to understand the bigger picture. Not only do we view and take in the photographs, but the style and reflections in each of their writings brings unique perspectives to understanding the truth in the story…

Push to Pedal

If you haven’t seen this, it’s worth the watch.

“For one week, the whole crew stayed at the Casa Maccaroni, in Lajares, which is located in the middle of a desert pierced by only a few little volcanoes, in the north part of the island. From there they would cycle to spots on a average 45 km a day. Going to cities and villages, skating, coming back.

With no training, this trip turned out to be pretty tough for the skaters, but made them realize skate tours can be more than just sitting in a van to get to spots. A memorable experience for most of them.”

The Radavist 2014 Calendar: September
RAD_SEPT2014_800

This is the nineth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Ascension”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

The Pacific Coast is a cycling Utopia. Minus the RVs and tourists who are unable to operate their rental cars. Still, in one of the heaviest traveled scenic highways in the US, solitude can be found, even amongst looming giants like the Redwoods.

For a high-res JPG, suitable for print and desktop wallpaper*, right click and save link as – The Radavist 2014 Calendar – September. Please, this photo is for personal use only!
