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.
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.
I’m so bummed to have been traveling from London during Wiggo’s Hour Record. For those who wanted a bit of background on the history of this event, check out the above video and see the rest of the series at Youtube. Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.
It’s sad to see yet another Midwest velodrome need our support. The Chicago Velodrome is in desperate need of your help, as it requires a chunk of change for repairs. You can find out more at their Go Fund Me or pick up a South Chicago Velodrome Association shirt.
British Cycling always has great photos during the UCI Track Worlds. These men’s and women’s team pursuit images from Paris, France are excellent and there’s more where that came from. Head over to British Cycling’s Flickr to check out the rest.
As part of the Hoy brand, the former accomplished – to say the least – track racer has teamed up with UK company Vulpine on a line of cycling apparel. Inspired by vintage style, with a modern fit, the Hoy Vulpine line is in stock now online. Or you can see the line in person at the London Bike Show.
