That Hurt Like Hell
OregonOutback-1

28 hours of moving time, 60 elapsed hours, 13mph average, 15,300′ elevation, 368 miles later and Team AWOL is done. We finished the Velodirt Oregon Outback, self-supported, fully loaded on Sunday, 45 minutes ahead of schedule. I rode the last day with a bum knee and a crooked back. It was three days of highs and lows, with a constant headwind.

… but we did it. Expect a whole torrent of photos and posts once I recover and return home to Austin.

Thanks for the support on Instagram and your patience while the site has been inactive.

SOLD OUT: The Radavist Talisman Pocket T-Shirt
Radavist_Pocket_Tees-2

In Elder Futhark, the rune raidō means “ride or journey”. It is the mark of the Radavist. This rune is part of the talisman logo featured on the front pocket. On the rear, the spirit animal of the Radavist, a jackal with a scarred back that walks on its tail and the motto “Rubber Side Up”.

These American Apparel pocket tees were printed using natural discharge ink at Industry Print Shop here in Austin. After a few washes, you won’t even feel where the print was. Make sure you wash them before wearing.

Scoop one up below for $25 + Shipping… sorry, sold out!

… for bringing three friends even closer together. I didn’t have wifi all week at my hotel, so posting will commence tomorrow morning. Let’s just say, we had a blast!

Chrome: Limited Edition Chris Milliman Citizen
citizen_millimanseries_chicagosteel_hero

The newest from Chrome features one of my favorite photographers in cycling, Chris Milliman:

Chris Milliman has been taking pictures since he was a kid. He’s been riding a bike a little bit longer. Chris is lucky enough to do both for a living. He’s captured some of the most epic cycling moments around the world. From Cyclocross Nationals, to the Tour de France, to the streets of NYC and Chicago, Chris captures the essence of cycling in every shot he takes.

This season’s Limited Edition Artist Series features four of Chris’ iconic photographs: A local cyclocross race around an old castle in Belgium, the iconic industrial bridge structures overlooking the bike lanes of Chicago, a locals only watering hole of the same windy city, and the organized chaos of a bike shop. The inside of each bag includes an exclusive woven patch that references old school photo processing.

The Chrome Artist Series celebrates photographers, graphic designers, screen printers, and painters who inspire us. These collaborations are built in limited quantities and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

The four Milliman Artist Photo Citizens include:
Zonnebeke (brwn/red), Chicago Steel (brnw/yellow), Locals Only (brwn/green), and Shop Rat (brwn/blue)

Black Friday Savings
thanks

Each year, I try to share the wealth of savings of Black Friday sales. As always, support your local bike shop first and foremost. Local businesses thrive on holiday sales. In fact, many businesses make enough money during the holidays to help them stay open year round. SO SHOP LOCAL!

Now to completely contradict all that, here are a few online sales and events happening on Black Friday. If you’re throwing a race, post it up in the comments and I’ll add it to the post. Just make sure the flier is at least 655 pixels wide!

Pit Stop
Geekhouse_01

There’s nothing better than drinking from the Earth after a mean Cat 2 climb in 90+ degree weather. Last weekend, a big group of us did the Geyserville loop and after the initial descent, there was a water trough filled with ice cold spring water. I took my Hasselblad out of the videographer’s car and snapped a few shots of my Geekhouse resting on this oasis.
