Nahanni Reforestation

My good friend Benji at Poler’s wife, Nahanni, recently decided to undertake a massive project. Her father ran a treeplanting business on the west coast in British Columbia from 1977 to 1987 called Nahanni Reforestation. At the time, Nahanni was a young girl and she grew up in the woods – not to mention she was born in a teepee. Years later, she discovered all of her father’s negatives and began scanning them.

It’s inspiring to see it all unfold and now, she’s launching a Kickstarter to gain funding for a book.

Let the Good Times Roll

With Tanner Goods and Cielo!

“Our friends across the river at Chris King and Cielo know how to craft three things extremely well: precision bike components, hand-built frames and tasty food. Every year they bring their love of all three together for the Gourmet Century, a 100-kilometer tour through the countryside with four stops along the route for riders to enjoy some of the best food Portland has to offer.

This year we took the Tanner Goods edition Cielo Sportif Classic out for the daylong tour with a few hundred other riders, both old friends and new riding buddies alike. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the bike yet, take a look at the video above, in our online shop or at our LA Flagship Store.”

Off the Grid with the Cinelli Hobo

This is so rad!

Toof

This video’s so good.

“Meet Joe:
18 years old,
bike thief,
West Ham supporter and would-be charmer.
He owes money around town and must pay it back.
He tries to make good by selling some stolen bikes.
But his past catches up with him. Joe must pay for his misdemeanours.
Tooth for painful tooth.”

Nicely done fellas!

The Warriors Fun Ride Intro

Back in the 90′s Squid threw a themed event called the Warriors race. Just like the movie, it was a team event and took people all over NYC. This year, he brought the event back, in the form of a fun ride and Takuya Sakamoto was there shooting video.

I can’t wait to see more from this!

Follow Your Way – Chile

Wow. I’m speechless. I love how most of this video is filled with vignettes of the sites and sounds of Chile and very little actual cycling.

“Second part of our travel – almost 4 months of cycling through the amazing Chile. After a really tough start we fell in love with our bikes, but first of all we fell in love with the country.

Few things come to my mind when I think ‘Chile’: beautiful landscapes, difficult past, very friendly and helpful people and unfortunately, a lot of hidden, mainly environmental problems (contamination from mines, HidroAysén project).

It was a really wonderful time. Many thanks to all good people we’ve met on our way!”
