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.
“The video was captured in Zermatt Switzerland on the bottom of the famous Matterhorn. Just for fun we went out on the evening of the 7th of March to capture some moonlight shots; with only the four of us to put it all together. We used a variety of techniques ranging from filming on skies with handheld gimbal, drone shots and and some time-lapse. Only due to cutting edge technology is it possible to capture the incredible images illuminated only by moonlight.”
For their next Four Corners video, Kona kicks it into high and heads south. The Zone is designed for a road racer who wants a little more from their bike. This Scandium frameset utilizes the same geometry as the carbon Zone and includes a carbon fork with a tapered steerer tube. It also features internal routing, fender eyelets and room for up to a 32mm tire.
“What started off as a way to pay the rent in San Francisco, soon turned into a new way of life for Chas Christiansen. Messenger cycling opened up a world of opportunity and introduced Chas to an international community of like-minded people. Taking his bike everywhere that he goes, travelling the globe in search of new people, cultures and experiences.”
Giro’s Grinduro is sure to provide a weekend of radness on October 10th. Here’s a video short profiling what you’ll do and see. Head over to the Grinduro Facebook for more updates and remember to check out the Grinduro Gallery.
To accompany the launch of their new Sherpa Overland bikepacking platform, Rocky Mountain bikes worked with Brian Vernor to produce a short film on Arizona’s Black Canyon Trail. These Canadian freeriders and XC racers are surely out of their element in the hot desert sun, but the vibe is right and this one should get the stoke going for a weekend adventure.
Back during cross nats, the guys from SRAM were in Austin, filming a video spot for their new GX mountain group. I pointed them to a bunch of my favorite trails to ride, with the caveat that it’s all pretty unnavigable. They took off, scouring the Barton Creek Greenbelt, Pace Bend and other trails for a ripping good time and here’s the final product. Locals will recognize a lot in here (like the top of Quarry) and it’s rad to see my favorite spots gets shredded.
Morgan, let’s go skid leaves, baby…
Also, as a bonus, read on below for some words by Morgan Meredith and photos by Adrin Marcoux from the trip.
“Inspired to Ride follows a handful of cyclists from around the world as they race unsupported in the inaugural year of a 4,233 mile transcontinental race across the USA. This race is the antithesis to events like Tour de France and Race Across America. There will be no teams, no support vehicles, no special jerseys and not a dime in prize money.”
