How Japan Parks Their Bikes

Just like everything Japanese, their new parking system is done with order and care. The interior shots of this machine are wild. I’d hate to see a “jam” in the system though.

Castelli: Gorge Roubaix Recon

On March 28th and 29th, in The Dalles, Oregon, the Gorge Roubaix will take place. A two-day stage race with views for miles on end. Castelli followed a group of riders out onto these empty roads for a bit of reconnaissance. This looks like a good time.

Genre de Vie

While the standard issue talking head approach to bicycle documentary can get old relatively fast, I found this one in particular to be quite informative. Filmed in Copenhagen and NYC, two cycling hubs, Genre de Vie takes a look at urban life and the empowerment achieved by using the bicycle as a form of transportation.

If you’re an architect, urban planner, or someone who is enthralled by urbanism, give this one a watch for sure.

Restrap Shoot Uses Magnets to Make Camera Strap Swapping Easy

It doesn’t take much to get my attention when it comes to camera straps. Never one to shy away from innovative design, I was pretty stoked to see the guys at Restrap develop a new “quick release” for neck and wrist lashes. Through utilizing magnets, their design makes swapping straps between your 35mm rangefinder to DSLR and vice versa, a cinch.

Made in the UK by Restrap and at a damn solid pricepoint too!

Head over to Restrap’s Shoot Kickstarter for more information.

The Col Collective: Hautacam

As somewhat of a sleeper climb in the Midi-Pyrénées, Hautacam has a nasty reputation for exceeding the difficulty of other more notable passes. With an average grade of 8%, it’s sure to put fire in your legs. Watch as the Col Collective tackles Hautacam in their newest video…

Bombtrack at the Bike Transalp

Bombtrack rider Stefan “Fish” Vis took to the 2014 Bike Transalp, a 7 day mountain bike stage race, totalling 600km with 19,000 vertical meters and 1,200 registrants. Unlike the rest of the field, Stefan was on a cyclocross bike, Bombtrack’s the Hook.

As you could imagine, a cross bike would be a better companion on the long road climbs up, but would require a bit of finesse on the downhill sections… Head over to the Vimeo page for more information on this race.
