Pelago Goes to Berlin

Sorry for the lack of posts over the past few days, I’ve been in bed with a stomach bug. Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be craving BBQ for a while.

ANYWAY, check out this video from Pelago!

“In the end of February 2013, we took our bikes, rode them into a boat and headed from Helsinki to Berlin to set up our temporary shop in Brunnenstrasse 156 and to participate in the Berliner Fahrrad Schau. The boat took us to Rostock and from there we cycled through Sietow and Neuruppin to reach Berlin.”

Bikecentennial76: From Winter to Sunshine

Photos by Ron McClure

I came across these two exceptional photos on Flickr earlier this week and had to share. The top photo was taken at the Hoosier Pass in May 1976 and the bottom, the Blue Ridge Parkway in late July 1976 during the Bikecentennial76 Oregon to Virginia trip 12 friends embarked on. Only 9 completed and you can read more at DDsiple’s Flickr.

Now’s a good time to plan a tour!

Erik and Sofia have ended their North America tour but the Great Escape is far from over. In fact, right now, Erik is out in the Swiss Alps riding and already uploading some gorgeous photos. He’s got these new Great Escape patches keeping him safe as he blasts Darkthrone and takes photos.

Head over now to pick one up and while you’re there, stay for the photos.

Ramon Jacquez: Golden Tour
Screen shot 2012-08-07 at 1.03.50 PM

Photos by Ramon Jacquez

This time, last year, I was anxiously awaiting my departure to Portland for my Summer tour and over the past few weeks, I’ve been itching to get back on the road. Maybe that’s why I’ve been scouring Flickr for interesting touring photos. Which led me to a reader’s trip from earlier this summer. Ramon Jacquez rode his LOW pursuit (low pro) on the “Golden Tour“. Backpack touring is about as minimal as you can get and his photos show this was no easy task.

I highly suggest you check out the set. It’s quite nice!
