Pinkbike: Riding the English Lake District with Acre Supply
p5pb10749138

Photos by Andy Waterman

Pinkbike has an exceptional story showcasing Lyle from Mission Workshop / Acre riding the English Lake District with photographer Andy Waterman. I’ve never had the chance to ride terrain like this and although it looks fun, there’s a price to pay for the beauty. Steep, slick, rocky climbs (hikes) and moody mother nature…

Head over to Pinkbike to check it out!

BÖIKZMÖIND: The Full Fixed Gear Bicycle Documentary

It’s been a while, but the full BÖIKZMÖIND is now online, for free!

“BÖIKZMÖIND is a 30 minute film about riding fixed gear bikes in beautiful city of Bristol, UK. The film shows the diverse cross section of riders and asks why ride bikes with no gears in a city full of hills. It also shines a light on the community and camaraderie that comes with the simple joy of riding bicycles. This is the full film, released in 2011, which was previously only available to watch as a purchased digital download, but now 3 years after it’s initial debut, we’ve decided to put the full film online for everyone to enjoy!

The film’s soundtrack was curated & provided by Redg Weeks of Bristol’s own Invada Records and features BEAK>, The Fauns, Quakers and more! invada.co.uk You can buy a DVD hard copy of the film though, which comes in a specially designed screenprint-wrapped package with 97-page photobook, documenting the creation of the film. Grab one right here: boikzmoind.bigcartel.com. You can also purchase the digital file + a 20-minute ‘making of’ edit by clicking right here: gumroad.com/boikzmoind

A Ride Reborn

“This is a short film based on the photography and writings of Rob Lutter.

His project, The LifeCycle, is a global cycling tour from London to London and has so far taken him 2 years and 15,000km to Hong Kong – his half way point.

Struggling with OCD and failing to find creativity at home, Rob left his home in England in 2011 alone by bicycle to find new life and meaning out on the open road.”

Nice find Tracko!

Check out this series that Muc-Off did with Rapha Condor Sharp JLT during the Tour of Britain. It’s a bit long of a watch, but worth it. Besides, I know you’re not actually working on a Friday afternoon…
