A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
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. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
“Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases and chronic obstructive airways disease. In 2008, Philippe Poncet was diagnosed with stage 4 COPD. Despite this diagnosis, he is an avid cyclist and in this film challenged himself to ride Col du Lautaret supported by his team of doctors and athletes.”
Madisons are one of the most exhilarating track races to watch. Recently, the Austral / Australian Madison Championships took place in Melbourne, prompting Andy from FYXO to venture out in the hot, hot, hot summer heat. Clearly the outside temperature wasn’t the only thing on fire that day. Those BT bikes!
Last weekend was Track Nationals in Los Angeles. Affinity Cycles’ racer Ash Duban was competing in the event at the VELO Sports Center and Kyle from Tracko was on hand to photograph her. There’s a great photo gallery up at Affinity Cycles, with a lot of behind the scenes shots, so go check it out.
If you’re all about track racing and love supporting velodromes like Portland’s Alpenrose then these socks are the perfect way for you to show that love. Head over to Kessler’s Instagram to scoop up a pair and thanks to Kyle from Tracko for the photos!
The fourth annual PDW Omnium took place on May 30, 2015 at the beautiful Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland. Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of track racing, eating burgers, hot dogs and ice cream floats. Big ups to Clint Culpepper and to all the racers for another successful year of the event.
The Bike Jerks blog has some exceptional photos up from their local track’s opening night. Head on over to check out some more photos from the NSC Velodrome’s season kick-off. Seriously Marty, those are some great photos!
In my opinion, Merckx still holds the hour record in an era before aerodynamics were a main concern. His Colnago-built Molteni track bike was completely laced out with Pino Morroni drillium componentry to reduce weight and nothing protected the hardened cyclist from a potential collision, save for a Cinelli hairnet. In 1972, Merckx was the man of the hour and his legacy still lives to this day. This video showcases other greats from the Hour Record.
I wish I could have found this portrait that George Marshall took to post instead, but this photo from Rapha’s MyHour page will suffice. As if anyone was doubting Wiggo, he successfully set a new hour record of 54.526km\h, sending him even more decorated into cycling’s great history books and topping off his career.
