We’re In Nevada this Week!

I’ve been looking forward to this week for a long time. A handful of us is embarking on a trip across highway 50 in Nevada, dubbed “the lonely highway;” this beautiful high desert road is anything but that – especially when it comes to outdoor activities like mountain biking. We’ll be hitting various towns along the way, riding trails both old and new, all while soaking in the rich history and environment that is central Nevada…

The Pinnacle Kapur

Mountain bikes don’t have to be expensive, but they do need a dialed geometry, and at £375.00, it’s hard to argue with the price!

Fizik’s Tempo Powerstrap R5

I must say, this time of year is one of my favorites in the cycling industry. Summer is nearly over and brands begin to push out their new products, eagerly awaiting the consumers’ reactions. When I saw the new Fizik Tempo Powerstrap R5 hit their webshop, I suddenly was excited for road shoes, since forever ago. At only 499 grams for a size 42, a sleek silhouette, easy to adjust velcro straps and a price of $119, these shoes hit a lot of marks, including an all-black design. See more at Fizik and holler at your local dealer for ordering.

Last Night from Reno Cross

I didn’t expect to be here in Reno during Interbike but I did expect to be in Nevada. We’re embarking on a tour of Highway 50’s best-kept secrets: its mountain bike trails. Over the next several days, we’ll be heading east on 50, stopping along the way to soak in the culture and shred the trails that are barely noticeable from the highway. Last night, we – the random group of ragtag riders – met at Reno Cross to cheer on the racers and bid adieu to Reno for the time being. While there I did my best to shoot the event, not expecting to get anything of value yet sometimes I surprise myself…

Old Growth Classic Video!

Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz absolutely killed it with this event. The 2018 Old Growth Classic was the first ever bike race in Big Basin Redwoods State Park, resulting in a truly memorable weekend. The race took entrants through redwoods and meandering roads to the finish where a true party awaited at camp…

Norse mythology is rich with tales of gods and wars, including Ragnarök, the final battle which finds the Earth battling with various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Not that your winter commute will signify the end of the world as we know it through submersion but that doesn’t mean your feet have to get wet and cold during your training, racing, and riding. The Ragnarök cycling shoe is an all-weather ally in the war against the elements, designed to keep your feet comfortable in 25ºF+ / -3ºC+ weather. Check out more details at 45nrth!

DirtRag’s Got Some Tunes

… to liven up your ride. Kyle inadvertently inspired this one, too!

“I met Kyle Kelley one rainy, chilly early evening in July 2016 somewhere in Canada. My two friends and I had been riding in the rain for about eight days straight on the Great Divide, and finally caved and decided to stay at a hostel for a night to dry out. A woman named Liz came down from the balcony to introduce herself; she was also on a bike tour with her partner Kyle, heading to a bike summit in the midwest but taking the Great Divide route for part of the way. We ended up riding with them for a few days across the Canadian border and into the rainbow mecca of dewy Montana. As the storms held on to us by our shoulders, Kyle kept repeating, “ride towards sunlight!””
