You learn something new every day. I did not know what Rasputista is until this video. “Rasputitsa is a season when travel on unpaved roads becomes difficult, owing to muddy conditions, either from autumnal rains or spring thaw. It also refers to the condition of the roads, during those seasons.” What an ideal name for a dirt road race like the Rasputista Spring Classic.
LIOTR’s “the Big Lap” project video is live and I must say, it’s a great watch!
“Conor Brady grew up in Ireland, where his father Bill would leave every August on a two week ride around the country. A ride he called “the big lap.” Bill Brady lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2013, and Conor never got to share that ride with him. In the summer of 2017, Conor pieced together his father’s route from his old maps, and he and the Leave It On The Road crew set out to recreate The Big Lap, riding 1,000 miles in 10 days to raise donations for the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer.
To date Leave It On The Road has raised over $100,000 for cancer-fighting non-profits by planning epic rides with purpose. Learn more and get involved at leaveitontheroad.com“
This video makes me miss Japan, and my friends there, so much.
For his latest video, Michael from the Col Collective, takes on the Col de la Croix, Col du Pillon and Col des Mosses in Switzerland.
It seems nowadays mountain bike videos get bigger, badder and honestly, more unbelievable. Athletes are pushing themselves and their locations for these flicks to the ends of the Earth. It just so happens, this video takes place in the arctic circle. Brrrrrr!
This lo-fi and long video captures the energy of this bikepacking trek that took Lucas Winzenburg, Joel Caldwell, Logan Watts and Joe Cruz across Kyrgyzstan in 23 days.
… nothing can take away that city’s pride! Great video, Harrison!
