Arigatou Gozaimasu, Japan!

After three weeks on the road in Japan, I’m finally heading back to Los Angeles and just in time for summer. I wanted to thank everyone that made this trip so memorable and to the Circles family for making it possible. I’ll miss this place and its people, but will be back for sure!

Expect regularly-scheduled posts to commence this week, thanks for your patience… ;-)

When in Kyoto!

I’m still exploring Japan and re-visiting some favorite places, including Kyoto. We’ve been having a blast riding rental bikes around, visiting temples and places of note, including the Bamboo forest. I’ve been photographing a lot of touristy spots over at my personal Instagram @JohnProlly if you’d like to come along for the ride… Otherwise maybe all these photos will make it into a gallery once I’m back Stateside. Japan, you continue to blow my mind!

Jet Lagged in Barcelona with ENVE

Yes! Europe and not just Europe, Barcelona, an incredibly photogenic backdrop to explore by bike. This week I’m visiting the shop of Legor Cicli with ENVE and Crema Cycles. We’ll be doing local rides on dirt and sealed roads, testing out the new Crema Cycles Duo all-road bike. The overlying theme of this trip is framebuilders, bikes and dirt. Lots of dirt!

Yesterday began at the airport, first thing in the morning and ended on the bike. Not a bad way to intro a trip like this and attempt to rid myself of hellish jetlag. Stay tuned for more, but for now check out the Gallery!

On the Road to NAHBS

Today’s drive up to Sacramento from LA took made for some great off-roading.

It’s that time of year again. Over the next few days I’ll be attending the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Sacramento. That means a lot of custom bikes will be gracing the pages of the site, beginning tonight, so stay tuned…

On the Road to Interbike

Today we’re heading out to that no-man’s land called Las Vegas for Interbike. As with each year, there will be galleries showcasing products that we feel are pertinent to the site’s modus operandi. If you have anything specific you want to see photos of, drop a line in the comments and if you’re heading out, be sure to say hi!

A Desert Reset in Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley

A reset, not a reprogram, was needed. A friend reached out and offered a weekend of desert exploration and chakra realignment. Joshua Tree. A park named after the plant yucca brevifolia which received its common name by Mormon settlers who traversed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. These tall, twisted giants were reminiscent of the Biblical character Joshua as he reached to heaven in prayer.

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.

Back Home Before Heading Back Out

Austin is my home base, however a lot of my time the past few years has been on the road. As such, I’ll be nomadic for the next few weeks, toting my life with me in a duffle bag and a photo backpack, occasionally with a bike in tow. As things calm down, between and after these events, we’ll be sharing content about what the Radavist crew has been up to. Here’s some of what’s in store, and what you can expect to see in the coming months:

-Zipp Factory tour
-Rouge Roubaix
-Photo Show at Velo Cult
-Eroica California
-Sea Otter

Should your schedule overlap, come say hi. Hopefully, I’ll get to chat bikes with a few of you. While it’s a busy time of year for me and the entire crew at the Radavist, I really enjoy meeting readers and getting feedback from the community.
