Anyone up for some touring and packrafting? By bicycle…
There are a lot of misconceptions about merino wool, many of which are addressed here in this video by Patagonia, showcasing their new Merino Air™ baselayers. I’ve tried these products on and was really impressed with them. When it comes to bikepacking, camping and even travel, I usually wear as much merino as I can. It’s nice seeing the fabric pushed into a new realm…
This looks like a great way to celebrate a legacy like Masi:
“Celebrating our 90th anniversary, and the heritage that brought Masi from Italy to southern California, we’re producing 100 American made, hand built, Gran Criterium and Cross Campaigner frames. Featuring modern geometry, modern components, and modern, shaped Columbus steel tubing were not just recognizing our history…we’re celebrating our present.”

GT Bicycles gets it. I mean, I knew that ever since they hired our friend Cait Dooley. Here’s a video showcasing their new women’s lineup, which you can read all about in detail and see their mountain, enduroad and pavement bicycles, specifically designed for women at GT.

Seeing videos like this are always inspirational, especially when it’s from a woman’s perspective:
“Megamoon is a film about a journey by bike where love and adventure come together. Hannah’s personal story of how she came to be pulling a heavy trailer across the world’s longest mountain bike trail known as the Great Divide.”

For the latest 7 Bikes for 7 Wonders project, Ira Ryan from Breadwinner Cycles talks about what inspiration they found in the Wallowas for their rigid MTB. I love that most of the bikes inspired by Oregon are mountain bikes. Such great riding out there!
This looks like a wild project…
“It’s been a journey, you could say. A real barnburner. A man at the top of his professional prowess, his mountain bike a natural extension of him, one of the best riders the sport has ever seen. But like all great heroes, adversity comes a knocking. For Graham Agassiz, a relatively benign descent—one he’s done a hundred times before—reached out with its wicked limb and smacked him down. Shoved a fat slice of humble pie in his kisser. With his neck broken and a career in jeopardy, the road back to the top is now lined with dangers and demons.”
