I’m Going AWOL This Weekend Jan 9, 2014


This morning, the AWOL team and myself left San Francisco for a three day ride through Henry W. Coe state park down to Morgan Hill. While we have a general idea of how we’ll get down there (i.e. excessive speculation), we’re leaving a lot of room for error. Because, let’s face it, no big ride can go down without something going wrong. At least that’s my track record as of late.

I’ll be riding one of the new hydraulic disc, belt drive AWOL Transcontinental limited edition bikes and shooting photos of the ride for a few features on PiNP.

Come Monday, we’ll be showing my photos from the ride at the premier of the Transcontinental AWOL video at Specialized HQ.

    Henry Coe is a good climb. Make rad.

    If you see Mike Sinyard can you ask him about those sweet AWOL panniers that Specialized has been keeping on the down low? I’ve been lusting after them since July.


    • I used them during the ride – they’re pretty rad. Made by Ortlieb, new attachment system.
