Recent Roll: Spaces and Faces

Carrying around the Hasselblad all day is not exactly fun but when I get a few rolls back, from various Shop Visits, it’s all worth while. These photos are from recent spaces and faces, some of which you’ll recognize, others you wont.

Woof Jakarta’s Last Post

I was very, very surprised and saddened to see this on my RSS this morning, first thing. Woof Jakarta has decided to shut down the blog. I’ll still be watching it though, in hopes it will pop back up.

Help Cranky’s Owner Jim C Out
SupportJimC

I was just going through my emails when I came across this and then Tracko posted it up as well. I met Jim once, in Tokyo, during the CMWC and he was a brilliantly charismatic guy. As the owner of Cranky’s, a great bike shop, he needs our help.

“This past weekend leading a youth BMX trip, Jim C a figure in our local bike community and Cranky’s shop owner took a really bad crash and landed himself in the hospital. He was rushed into surgery and spent the past couple days in the hospital racking up some big bills. Jim has done so much for our community so if you feel like supporting this awesome guy the Santa Barbara Bike Coalition has set up a donation site at www.bicicentro.org/ICF.

Back when Jim C. first moved out to Santa Barbara three years ago, coalition members were in awe. He brought with him the Bicycle Film Festival, the energy of the LA bike movement, Cranky’s, Gold Sprints, a cyclocross race, and even youth trips 100 miles away because of the BMX ban in our skate park.

Jim served the last two years as a Board member of the Bicycle Coalition active in both our events planning and in the advocacy arena. He tirelessly interacts with new and established cyclists to push our cause, hosts challenging events, and captains the ship at Cranky’s. Jim has helped so many of us, and now it’s time to help him.

At this time, 100% of SB Bicycle Coalition Injured Cyclist Fund donations are going to Jim Cadenhead, who is currently hospitalized due to a major crash during the annual Youth BMX overnight trip that he coordinates out to Atascadero.

He will have significant medical bills from this injury and does not have health insurance. It’s time for everyone to give back to Jim C!”

PLEASE donate anything you can to the Injured Cyclist Fund to help Jim C! I just did and you can too. Even $1 helps.

We’re in Bali
Bali-1

We made it to Bali in one piece but unfortunately, the internet is spotty, so I can’t really post much. I’ll update the site the best I can over the next few days but you know… the beach awaits!

See You in Jakarta at Fixed Fest!
FlagHatchetJakarta_small

So I’m heading out for the airport in a few minutes, en route to Jakarta for Fixed Fest! Unless I have wifi on the plane, this will be the last post until I’ve landed, so why not stroll through the Photosets or better yet, ride your bike.

I made this modified Flag Hatchet of the Indonesian flag and I’ll have a few prizes to give out, but most importantly, I can’t wait to ride with everyone and experience the Indonesian culture!

See you on the other side.

Help Send Crihs to Jakarta
Crihs

Crihs has been trying to get out to Jakarta for Fixed Fest, leaving him with only one option left: donations via Kickstarter. I’ve always enjoyed seeing Crihs’ documentation from events and would love to see this event through his lens. Head here to donate but act quick, his deadline is Sunday!

We’ve all had an encounter with a bee while riding a bike. I got stung last week on our Cloud Burst ride and just recently, Bobby from Full Factory Distribution got a little more than he bargained for. Read up on the story and check out more of Taj’s killer illustrations at Fairdale.
